Production of $2,500 watch is limited to 50 pieces.

The 29-year-old head of Weiss Watch Co., Cameron Weiss, appropriately chose the Fourth of July to debut his company’s $2,500 American Issue Field Watch, a “handsome, retro-looking, vaguely military-inspired 42mm wristwatch heavy on the patriotic motifs,” the Los Angeles Times writes. For the exception of the hairsprings and jewel bearings, the article explains, the watch is crafted entirely out of American-made parts in Weiss’ 2,100-square-foot studio in Torrance, CA. Production of the watch is being limited to 50 pieces, one for each U.S. state.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
