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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
