Jewelry Pro Drives 1 Million Km, Finally Gets a New Car

The car is not sentimental for him — it’s just a tool for work.

Plenty of people in the jewelry business go the extra mile for their profession. But Bruce Audley of Beverly Hills Jewellers Mfg. is a special case.

He recently traded in his 1999 Acura TL, which had clocked 1 million kilometers, CTV reports.
The high odometer reading is because of his work as a traveling sales agent. Audley says he put all the kilometers on the car driving around Alberta, Canada.

That’s a lot of drive time — about a year-and-a-half in total. The car still has its original engine. But it’s on its fourth timing belt and third transmission, and it has some dents and rust.

Audley, 66, says the car is not sentimental for him — it’s just a tool for work.

West Side Acura in Edmonton celebrated the trade-in with an on-site event, according to Acura Connected, an independent blog. He got a new Acura RLX.

The dealership threw in four snow tires for Audley’s new ride, according to CTV. Interestingly, the odometer never actually hit 1,000,000. It went to 999,999 and stopped — an outcome that Audley described as “anticlimactic.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

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.”
