I W Marks Owner – Brad Marks
I W Marks Jewelers has been committed to providing tireless and personalized service in the Houston area since 1978. A family-owned and operated business, it is now in its second generation, as President Bradley Marks continues his late father’s legacy of honesty, integrity and excellence in customer care.
While still at its founding location on Bellaire Boulevard, I W Marks has grown substantially in size over the years and now comprises over 12,000 square feet—an amazing growth from the original 500-square-foot store.
With muted tones and a traditional design, the space offers a tranquil atmosphere giving customers a chance to leisurely browse the many showcases that include dedicated areas for watches, fine jewelry and bridal lines; and shop-in-shops for such brands as Mikimoto, Alor, Lagos, Stephen Dweck, Judith Leiber, Dominique Cohen and Kabana. Waterman and Visconti writing instruments are also on display.
I W Marks recently expanded to include a 3,000 square foot luxury watch boutique where you can find brads such as: Rolex, Tudor, Michele, Philip Stein, Raymond Weil and Glycine, as well as Wolf Designs watch winders. The most popular price points are between $5,000 and $10,000, but you can also find times under $100!
With a well-trained staff of 25—and a watchmaker on site—this store is a haven for watch lovers. In-store training as well as vendor training sessions, weekly informational meetings and a plethora of literature keep the staff on task when it comes to the fine points about particular models.
“Maintaining the highest standards of customer service is our number one priority, and that begins with a knowledgeable team.”
