Watch and jewelry industry veteran Robert Sears Siragusa has died of COVID-19, watch journalist Roberta Naas writes at A Timely Perspective.

Siragusa was known for establishing Maurice Lacroix USA in the early 1990s.

“For 10 years he worked tirelessly to build the little-known Swiss watch brand into a success in the United States market,” Naas writes. “He was a smart marketer and an incredible person.”

After leaving the brand, she explains, he helped launch Beaudry Time with designer Michael Beaudry.

In the mid-80s, he founded Aurion International, a jewelry manufacturer.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
