Tubular Tuesdays: Timepieces in the Shop

Welcome back from the long weekend readers! Today’s post has been taken over by yellow gold fever with a few of the current timepieces in the shop. Yellow gold is making a comeback with its arm tones and luxe look, and these 5 watches are our top tick-picks for your wrists.

Patek Philippe 3671 18K Yellow Gold Square Watch

In 1845 Antoni Patek joined with the French watchmaker Adrien Philippe and Patek Philippe & Co was founded in 1851.Credited with inventing the watch as we know it, this brand invented the perpetual calendar, split-seconds hand, chronograph, and minute repeater in watches. This 18kt rare gold stunner makes an interesting and classic addition to a watch collection.

Cartier Tank Francaise 18kt Men’s Full Size Watch

 

In 1917, Cartier debuted its Tank watch, inspired by the Renault tanks that Cartier observed during World War I. The Tank Francaise’ s smooth, rounded edges and clean lines set a standard for elegance, while the flawless integration of the bracelet into the watch’s case itself create a unified and uninterrupted tableau of sophistication. The Cartier Tank Francaise is an icon, and a necessity for any complete watch wardrobe.

Rolex Daytona 16528 18kt Mens Watch

This chronograph is named for the famous Rolex 24 at Daytona, and is prized for its accuracy. The Zenith movement featured in the seconds series is considered the best and most accurate of the Chronograph series to date. This increasingly rare yellow gold Daytona is masculine, sporty, precise and above all – elite.

Rolex Day-Date 18038 Presidential White Diamond Dial

Given to President Eisenhower by Rolex, the Day Date model (named so for its day and date display windows at 12 and 3, respectively) earned its nickname the “President.” To this day, several subsequent Commanders-in-Chief have also worn this Presidential model. This specific timepiece stands out with a beautiful white diamond and Roman numeral dial.

Rolex Presidential 179158 18kt

Last, but certainly not least, the Pièce de résistance of Tubular Tuesday is this 2001 Oyster Perpetual Datejust with Tahitian Mother of Pearl and diamond dial and a diamond bezel with diamond accents on the case. This elegant, stunning watch is sure to stand out.

Spoltlight On: Igor Polotsky, Raymond Lee Jeweler’s Master Watchmaker

This month’s Boca Magazine features Raymond lee Jewelers; own master watchmaker Igor Polotsky in its Slice of Life segment.

Igor, who is certified by the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute as a 21st century master of his craft, has been a part of the Raymond Lee Jewelers family for the past 2 years of his three decade career.

Igor is an indispensable asset to Raymond Lee Jewelers, as he is one of the 9 U.S. watchmakers authorized by Cartier to repair its watches; he also is adept at servicing the other luxury watch brands of Raymond Lee Jewelers, like Rolex, Patek Phillipe, and  Jaeger-LeCoultre.

Boca Magazine gets the inside scoop from the master himself on what inspired his career path (it has to do with some surprisingly heavy salt), why he left his life in native Russia behind, and the laugh-out-loud reason that Igor’s talents proved too much to handle for his employer at Tiffany & Co.’s 5th avenue showroom.

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Taken with Triple Tourbillon Titanium of Reverso à Triptyque Timepiece

A Very Happy Friday to Our Readers, Friends and Visitors!

The Feature Friday item is of particular significance today, as it may be one of the most exquisitely designed and brilliantly constructed timepieces I may ever be granted the opportunity to highlight.  A vortex of research was sparked by my absolute enchantment with the Feature Friday visual preview, which was provided by the great Richard Resnik (our Professional Custom Jewelry Designer, here at Raymond Lee Jewelers) yesterday.

I can say with absolute certainty that this is the first time I’ve experienced an unyielding fervency for researching timepiece mechanics, design and history. I drove home magnetically drawn to the virtual library of information that patiently waited for me, silently sitting inside my laptops’ wireless connection.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Triptyque


After brushing up on over a century of timepiece history, I believe it to be a fair and just proclamation that Jaeger-LeCoultre is among the most exceptional, clever and creative fine-watchmaking manufacturers.

A description of the immaculate creation of the Reverso à triptyque timpepiece, manufactured by Jaeger-LeCoultre is worded beautifully by an unlisted author here on  thewatchquote.com. This detailed overview  just so happens to describe this particular timepiece by Jaeger-LeCoultre with a level of precision and perfection comparable to the luxury watch itself.

Respect for watchmaking tradition is no empty phrase for Jaeger-LeCoultre. Rather, it’s an integral part of the Manufacture’s philosophy, which pays equal respect to avant-garde creativity and innovativeness.
