High-dollar Cartier watches are showing up for sale at Walmart.com — and Cartier sounds none too pleased.

The Wall Street Journal reported that on Black Friday, an $18,000 Cartier watch was being offered at the site by a third-party seller.

As of Wednesday, several Cartier models were available through the site from vendors Jewelry Unlimited Inc. and Ohclock.

Fortune explains that Walmart “does not take possession of items sold in its marketplaces.” Rather, it supplies the e-commerce setup and charges a fee.

Fortune quoted a statement from Cartier: “Walmart is not a Cartier authorized retailer therefore Cartier has no knowledge or involvement in the selling or marketing of this watch nor can confirm the authenticity of the piece.”

Cartier is part of Switzerland-based Richemont.

Rapaport News quoted Cartier saying that it “has continually monitored the unauthorized marketplace and discovered that unauthorized dealers try to cover up the fact that they sell products that are often used, sometimes faulty, occasionally counterfeit, and never warrantied by Cartier.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
