Chris Gillette of the Gator Boys puts his ArmourLite watch to the 'toothy' test


NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla., July 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ArmourLite Ambassador Chris Gillette of the hit Animal Planet television show Gator Boys lives a life most people would consider a nightmare; handling massive crocodiles, hungry alligators and deadly venomous snakes for a living. But for Chris the apparent nightmare is a dream-come-true as he deftly swims underwater with gators twice his size and captures snakes that could end his life in one bite. Since a young age Chris has had a passion for animals; especially the toothy ones. This passion has fueled a career as an entertainer, wildlife photographer, and a researcher with a bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies from Florida International University. Such talents have brought Chris to conduct research in the jungles of the Amazon and Costa Rica, the Banco Chinchorro atoll in Mexico, and across the United States.

"When we first got to know Chris, he admitted he never wore a watch as he assumed there was not one capable of surviving the environmental and physical conditions of his daily life," explains Hugo Reiner, President of ArmourLite Watch Company. "We assured Chris that an ArmourLite watch with shatterproof Armourglass crystal and 316L-stainless-steel construction would indeed meet the challenge. Two years and counting and the ArmourLite Professional Series AL48 that Chris uses is still ticking on his wrist."
