Jewelry and Watch Works is the combined passion of a 30-year watch collector and jewelry store salesperson and a newly minted watch nerd and entrepreneur. George and Trey first met while Trey was visiting every store in Richmond, Virginia that had even a small mention of vintage watches mentioned on their website. George was a vintage watch expert that spoke the lingo and had the experience and knowledge that Trey was eager to learn more about.
This chance meeting evolved into rendezvous at fast food restaurants and donut shops to share items from their watch collections and knowledge that each had to offer the other. George had knowledge accumulated from experience in buying, selling and trading watches with other watch collectors and enthusiasts from all over the United States for more than 30-years, while Trey was spending his spare time digging deeply into the details of specific watches and brands and exactly what made them special and unique.
Ultimately this led to the conversation of “what if we opened a watch store?”. From the moment that was discussed out load, the pieces began to fall into place. The perfect location was available that included a high visibility store front and large vault, furniture and fixtures were available from a jewelry store operator that was retiring, an antiques and consignment vendor was looking for a specialized store to offer unique items for sale, a 25-year veteran in jewelry and diamond sales was looking for a new opportunity and the list goes on. Fast forward through store build out and setup, hurdles and setbacks brought about by a once in a lifetime (hopefully) pandemic and finally Jewelry and Watch Works is open to the public.
