Naas writes: “Typically, wrists are smaller and preferences in Asia tend to be for the smaller watch sizes. … Expecting this to be a big boon to business, many brands down-sized for women, despite the fact that the strong American market may still love a larger size. With the Chinese market weakened, the watches have to go somewhere, so a new trend has begun.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith.
