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!

To Generate Funds for a Jeweler’s Move and Remodel, Wilkerson More Than Delivered

Even successful jewelers need a little extra cash to fund expansion plans—especially when there’s inventory on hand that’s ripe for liquidation. For Beaumont, Texas-based jeweler Michael Price, co-owner of Mathews Jewelers, it was the perfect time to call Wilkerson. Price talked to other jewelers as well as vendors for advice during the selection process and decided to go with Wilkerson. And he wasn’t disappointed. When it comes to paying for the move and expansion, Price says the road ahead is clear. “When we close on the next two stores, there’s no worries about finances.”
