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.

As seen here, Camilla Belle is shopping in Beverly Hills at her favorite shop, Cartier of course and with her timeless beauty next to the sign makes her all the more beautiful and classy!  Since she comes with a background of fashion, it makes sense!  And it is because of mom’s Latin fashion expertise, I can’t wait to see her next move, “Prada to Nada”.

Cartier Panther Collier with Emerald Eyes and a Black Onyx Nose: Feature Friday, Here We Go!

Cartier Panther Collier:

A Golden Feature Friday

Cartier Panther Collier

I once was wondering through a metallic forest, plagued with exhaustion and without a compass, when rapidly to my rescue ran…

A majestic golden panther that lit up the land.

Through a bewildered haze, I did hear him say, “Hello, my dear. I am Cartier”.  He said to rest, said that everything would be just fine. I awoke in my home, with no forest in sight. All I remember of the panther who saved me are his black onyx nose and the way it seemed to glow, with enchanting emerald eyes glowing as he delivered me to safety.

“I am Cartier”

Cartier Panther Collier

A premonition this dream must have been because…

Cartier has come back again!

This time, in the form of an incredible Panther Cartier Collier necklace, still watching the world through those bright emerald eyes and wearing a boldly vibrant black onyx nose. In 18k Yellow Gold, a 16″ Panther Cartier Collier Necklace exquisitely holds the regal Panther. With emerald eyes and black onyx facial accents, this Cartier piece weighs in total 65.7 dwt.

Most Stunning Jewelry at the Oscars?- Sell Gold

Sell Gold

Sell Gold

This year’s Oscars was pretty lackluster compared to previous years; between hosts James Franco’s barely disguised disdain for the entire event,  no surprise wins (Social Network was largely ignored) and the painfully middle of the road jokes, this year’s Oscars was one of the worst in recent memory. It seem the red carpet is one of the last vestiges of hope we have for actual entertainment on Oscar night. Luckily Hollywood’s top celebrities did not let me down as they were wearing jewelry that was truly stunning and was definitely worth watching. Sell Gold.

Perhaps the most stunning display of jewels was worn by actress Amy Adams, who is famous for her role in Enchanted and Julie & Julia. Ms. Adams was wearing an amazing $1.35 million dollars worth of gems from Cartier. On her wrist was a platinum, diamond and emerald haute joaillerie secret watch bracelet, worth $1.025 million. On her  other wrist she was sporting a 30.75 carat carved emerald bracelet adorned with 575 diamonds. The final touch on this masterpiece of decadent jewels was a pair of of platinum and diamond 2 carat stud earrings, worth approximately $35,000. Amy Adams was definitely channeling her princess character from Enchanted.

Cartier Roadster Chronograph- Watch Sell

Watch Sell

Watch Sell

The Cartier Roadster is one of Cartier’s most popular collections. These watches have a sturdy yet luxurious build that was inspired by the car racing world of the 1950’s and 1960’s. Like the automobiles of the past, the Roadster exhibits a feel of power and performance but balances this with a contemporary simple but very attractive look and sleek design.

All Roadsters have a large polished steel case which creates a impressive look on a man’s or woman’s wrist. The band is normally a polished steel triple link bracelet with brushed center links and a hidden, deployment clasp. If you are looking for a more classic look, you can replace the polished steel bracelet with a black leather strap, which is instantly interchangeable with Cartier’s patented system. The dial features black sword hands, markers and bold black Roman numerals that stand out against a dial that comes in a variety of colors.  Each dial is etched with concentric rings for a sporty driving watch look. Some Roadsters have black chronograph seconds hand and three oval sub-dials that display the chronograph functions. The dials also features a magnified date window at the three o’clock hour. A prominent polished steel cabochon crown completes the signature look. The Roadster comes with Cartier’s own Calibre 8510 Swiss-automatic movement and is rated water resistant to 330 feet. Watch Sell.

Raymond Lee Jewelers only sells the most exquisite pre-owned Cartier Roadsters at the best prices. Click on the picture above to be directed to one of our Roadsters that is currently for sale.

China’s Luxury Watch Boom

Jaeger-Lecoultre watch

Jaeger-Lecoultre Watch

Many of you may have heard of China’s economic boom but you may not have heard of China’s growing appetite for luxury watches. The world’s top watch makers are rushing to China to meet the heavy demand. Currently China ranks fifth in the world’s top markets for luxury watches and is moving up fast. Here is a run down of how these makers performed in China the last fiscal year.

Piaget: Piaget has had an excellent performance and higher then expected sales. In fact more than 60 percent of its total sales were in the Asia-Pacific region. Piaget currently has 13 boutiques in China and plans on opening more.

Cartier: Cartier was flush with new business last year, with nearly a double digit growth in the Asia-Pacific region. Cartier is embracing this new market with open arms and open boutiques (31 boutiques in China)!

Montblanc: Montblanc’s sales declined 6 percent.  This may sound like bad news but Montblanc is fairing pretty well considering the lower demand in American and European markets. Montblanc currently only has 33 percent of its sales in the Asia-Pacific region and is rushing to enlarge this percentage.

Jaeger-LeCoultre: This watch maker has 50 percent of its sales in Europe and has largely ignored the Asia-Pacific. Results: sales and profit decline.

As of now, the number of boutiques a brand has in China the more success it had last year.

Cartier Love Bangle Love Bracelet Sizes

Cartier Love Bangle Love Bracelet Sizes

Cartier Love Bangle

In 1969 Aldo Cipullo invented the “Love” bracelet for Cartier.  The story behind the Cartier love bangle has to do with its security.  Normal bangles  are wide enough to put on your wrist without opening it.  The Cartier Love bangle does not open without a screwdriver.  Every Love bracelet sold from Cartier comes with its own screwdriver. Jewelry repair is not necessary for a lost screwdriver as any flat head will do.

Sizes for the Love bracelet range from 16 to 21 which represent the inner circumference in centimeters.

Below is a reference chart for Cartier Love Bangle Love Bracelet Sizes:

Size 16 = 16cm (6.3 Inches)
Size 17 = 17cm (6.7 Inches)
Size 18 = 18cm (7.1 Inches)
Size 19 = 19cm (7.5 Inches)
Size 20 = 20cm (7.9 Inches)
Size 21 = 21cm (8.3 Inches)

Cartier Love Bangles remain one of the most popular selling Cartier items.  Famous people including Larry King, Lindsay Lohan, and Elton John have been known to wear these beautiful bracelets.
