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.

GQ has also been bitten by the Rolex bug, as Ted Stafford names the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Watch of the Week at GQ.com’s Style headquarters. His take:

“What do I love about this watch most (aside from the fact that Mark Sanchez makes it look so damn good on our September cover)? Its precision-brushed steel bracelet with that edgy green bezel. It’s straight up sophisticated luxury. Jets fan or not I say go for the green, folks.”

Whichever of fall’s trends you choose to indulge in, you can rest assured that Raymond Lee Jewelers remains South Florida’s number one source for luxury watches both classic and contemporary. And gents, we’re curious – would you prefer to don a watch with a rich, colored face, try the ceramic trend, or stay the classic course with a Rolex? Discuss in the comments below.

The Watches of “Two And A Half Men”

Can Two and Half Men go on without Charlie Sheen?

Is Ashton Kutcher dynamic and crazy enough to replace Charlie Sheen? Does he just have too much style?

 How are the writers of Two and Half Men kill off Sheen? Will the show still be entertaining?

I’ve been following Ashton’s passion for fine time pieces and now, if he hits my favorite show, he’ll have my whole heart! I think many of us felt like we were watching the real Sheen, and felt more like his reality show vs a “character” he was “acting” to be! It will be interesting to see what Ashton does for the show.

The Two Men producers have refused to comment on the many rumors, but seems Ashton will have a permanent spot in the new era.  After eight years, could a major change be a breath of fresh air, or the kiss of death?

Guess we will all find out on September 19th on CB S.

What would be the perfect revenge for Lorre?  Being to actually daydream of the funniest, most “Un-Charlie Sheen” way to die? Getting sober? Haha, being killed by healthy living! Or maybe because he jumped a cliff chasing after his beloved watch? You know, the one he destroyed a hotel room in NY?  In his defense, the Patek Philippe is worth $165K!  Don’t think the Swiss family wants their watch to be known for the owner strangling an “escort” and accusing her of stealing it! Oh well, the price of fame and exclusivity.
