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

Published

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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
