Chris Wiley

Owner & Operator

Chris’s main duties at Watch Chest include sales, general management, executing growth strategies, maintaining quality, and customer service.  

Chris was born in Georgia but shortly moved to the St. Louis area where he graduated from St. Charles West in 1980. After school he entered the Carpenters Apprenticeship Program, where he earned Journeyman Carpenter status and started his first business. After a lengthy stay in carpentry the emerging cable and fiber optics industry had just begun to take off. Seeing the potential he started another company to build the first cable and fiber optics infrastructure all over the United States. During this time Chris saw the emergence and the implications of the internet. With the help of a good friend he was introduced to e-commerce at the turn of the millennium. Knowing the red tape and high costs of participating in traditional business, Chris saw the advantages of this new form of commerce.

Chris started to sell Rolex watches on eBay in 2002 and since then Watch Chest resides on the cable and fiber optic network that he originally help build. Chris lists his accomplishments as raising two children and being a lifelong entrepreneur. Living in the Ozark hills of Branson he enjoys Table Rock Lake, fishing, boating, scuba diving, swimming, gardening, landscaping, hiking, and camping. He is also passionate about health and is fascinated with nature and the cosmos.
