Our events, originally scheduled for March were postponed following the recommendations of the State of Ohio due to the coronavirus COVID-19. We have already confirmed that nearly every presenter will be able to participate this fall and we will be updating our web site as more information is available at www.awci.com/timecon. The American Timepiece Fair showcasing watches, clocks, and the supporting industry is free and open to the public. This fair is unlike any other watch show because it features a curated selection of both new and used timepieces, watchmakers, clockmakers, and tool suppliers. Bring in your family heirloom and ask questions of our professionals who will be on hand buying, selling and offering Roadshow style appraisals. For those looking for a more in-depth horological experience Time-Con 2020 is three days of lectures, networking, and socializing running from October 8th through the 10th at the Summit Hotel. Some of this year’s lectures include engine turning, ship’s bell clocks, complicated restorations, history of timekeeping, Herschede tubular bell clocks, and much more. Registration for Time-Con is $599 ($499 before September 1st).

Wilkerson Showed Them the Way For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.” You may like Small-Business Owners Growing Increasingly Pessimistic on COVID-19, Says NRF David Yurman Lays Off 98 Workers in New York Retailers Should Set Nationwide Mask Policy to Combat COVID-19, Says NRF Promoted Headlines JYE’S International is Seen in All the Best Cases The Sylvie Collection Knows What Women Want Sylvie Collection From Chain to Casting, National Chain Group Does It All National Chain Group Advertisement Latest Trending Videos Press Releases6 hours ago New PGI-Commissioned Study Offers Retailers Insights Into How to Ease Customers’ Concerns Over COVID During the Holiday Season Press Releases9 hours ago Accutron Lights Up Empire State Building Celebrating 60th Anniversary Press Releases9 hours ago Industry Experts Gather for Collaboration on Ethics and Sustainability in Gold and Diamond Enterprise Big Survey1 week ago These Are the Top Watch Brands of 2020, According to INSTORE’s Big Survey Big Survey1 week ago The Guy Who Bought 13 Rings, and Other Tales of Serial Engagements Photo Gallery3 days ago 12 Photos That Show Off the Wow Factor at Thollot Diamonds & Fine Jewelry in Colorado Sponsored Content1 week ago A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic?
