IN THIS EPISODE OF the satirical Gene the Jeweler series, Gene tells a brief story about a watch he bought.

He says it’s a Rolex, and he picked it up over-the-counter for $2,000. He’s hoping to turn a big profit.

The seller said it doesn’t work. Gene opens the watch — but only after he’s already bought the watch and the seller has left.

He finds that it only needs a new battery. He also finds the words “Made in China.”

You know, Gene, something tells us that’s not a real Rolex. And a new battery is not going to help its value!

Wilkerson took care of everything from marketing to paperwork. When it’s time for you to consider the same, shouldn’t you trust the experts in liquidation?
