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.”

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
