His Luminox 'Colormark Chronograph' Model 3080 44 mm quartz watch features a chronograph and date display. It was built to provide perfect visibility and accuracy in extreme conditions. This watch is the result of demands by Navy SEALs, Air Force pilots, and FBI agents for timekeeping technology that performs under pressure.
The Brian LaViolette Foundation was formed by the LaViolette family to honor the memory of their son, Brian, who passed away in a swimming accident in Green Bay, Wisconsin when he was just fifteen years old in 1992. Brian was not only an excellent student, athlete, and musician, but he loved watches, starting his own collection when he was four years of age.
Since 1992, the Brian LaViolette Scholarship Foundation has presented 1,058 scholarships to deserving college-bound students in Northeastern Wisconsin, the United States, and other parts of the world. The Foundation continues Brian's legacy by helping high school seniors financially to achieve their educational dreams and, at the same time, providing them with encouragement and inspiration.
