These Are Our Readers’ Top Watch Brands, and the Brand Our Readers Covet Most

More INSTORE readers would like to add Rolex to their cases than any other jewelry or watch brand, according to results of the 2016 Big Survey. TAG Heuer and David Yurman rounded out the top three most wished-for brands.

The upcoming October issue of INSTORE contains the results of all 75 questions, which were answered by nearly 700 jewelry store owners or managers in July and August.

This is the fifth year since 2011 INSTORE has asked which brands stores would like to carry but currently do not. Rolex has topped the list four times. David Yurman and Tacori have been the most wanted jewelry brands during that same period.

Here is a look at top-three results dating back to 2011:

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
