One last modern man’s vintage must have….

The Skinny Tie.

Fleur-De-Lis Skinny Tie Circa 1940s

"A great vintage man's tie circa late 1940's. The design has a great pattern with a bit of funk. The background is a dark red, the fleur-de-lis design is ivory, gray and black. The material has an interesting texture and pattern of diamonds in the weave as well as a slight sheen. The photos were taken both with a flash and natural light-the tie appears more red with the flash,  the darker photos best show the overall color and the flash ones show the weave & texture. Condition is excellent, very clean and without wear, damage or stains. Measures 50" long and 3.25" at the widest. A wonderful vintage tie in amazing near mint condition."

Vintage Fashion is here to stay, gentlemen. And it's looking better now than even the first time around. Have some fun with these vintage accents in 
2012!

Raymond Lee Jewelers: Rothstein Auction a Go-Go! (…and a pretty grey logo.)

Raymond Lee Jewelers:

Rothstein Auction A Go-Go

Lee Josephson, Raymond Lee Jewelers VP, Offers a Philosophical Perspective on the Rothstein Auction during an interview with WPTV News, Channel 7:

 Reporter Paul Brinkmann has been continuously publishing updates, following today’s

Scott Rothstein auction action. Once again, South Florida Business Report features Raymond Lee Jewelers. 

Right on, Mr. Brinkmann!

Lee Josephson of Raymond Lee Jewelers in Boca Raton bids on a Patek Philippe yellow gold watch, but dropped out after a while.   “Lee Josephson of Raymond Lee Jewelers in Boca Raton bids on a Patek Philippe yellow gold watch, but dropped out after a while.”

‘Rothstein Mercedes fetches $73,500, Piaget watch $77,500’

Ultimately, the auction was a great experience and lots of excitement surrounding the event certainly stirred things up as lines began to form of South Florida jewelry professionals, collectors and victims of Scott Rothstein’s massive ponzi scheme looking for vengeance, in any form.

A variety of interpretations surrounding the auction have published since this morning. Certain sources are elaborating on the fact that so many pieces were paid above retail value for. Other views within the local press maintained a collectors perspective, pointing out that some items can become collectibles because of the stories tied to them… This, I tend to agree with, even if the story is not all that pretty.

Rothstein Auction Acquired Piaget Watch

Although Josephson won less bids than he hoped, he says there’s a serious lesson here.

“It shows how ridiculous someone is when money is no object. I’m blown away by how many watches Rothstein owned, he has more than most stores have in stock. I hope the people who got burned are reimbursed,” says Josephson

WPTV Channel 5  reported on the days events at the

Rothstein ‘ponzi auction’,

as well as the

And…

Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein may be serving time, but his white gold Piaget watch sold for $77,500 on Wednesday.

Think that’s a lot? Around 1 p.m., a new auction high was set on a limited edition Concord watch for $100,000. There was also a white gold Franck Muller watch that fetched $47,500 and a Patek Phillippe watch that went for $61,000.

If you’re still in need of that fifth and final Summer Essential, boys… Consider this awesome Omega wristwtch, available for only $595 at the Raymond Lee Jewelers eBay Store.

Good Morning, All!  While browsing our eBay store this morning, I came across this fantastic vintage watch by Omega. The model is Seamaster, with a stainless steel case and black leather bracelet. A bit of history about Omega’s Seamaster Series:

At the time the Seamaster was introduced in 1948, standard watches were extremely susceptible to water damage from even a dip in a sink or tub. The Seamaster was created as a line of standard dress-style watches which were ‘waterproof’ (as they called them then) suitable for swimming and other light water activities. Their water resistance then is about comparable to a 10 to 30 meter rating today. The now common diver’s watch style was unknown at that time.

Company Omega
Model Seamaster
Case Metal Stainless Steel
Case Measurement 32 mm
Bracelet Black Leather
Dial Silver
Crystal Plastic
Movement Automatic
Features Hours, Minutes, and Seconds

Rolex Watches: Time to Invest

Exquisite Timepieces.. Ahead of Their Time 

Rolex watches have been an icon of ingenuity, precision and craftsmanship since the early 1900’s. It was over a hundred years ago that Rolex wristwatches designated the ultimate compass of quality and design in timepieces. Over a century of accomplishment and innovation by Rolex watch designs include chronometer certification, self-winding mechanisms, automatic time calibration and quartz movement. A name synonymous with luxury and precision, Rolex is the largest single luxury watch brand and among the 100 most valuable global brands.

Rolex Deep Sea

Founded in 1905, “Wilsdorf and Davis” began manufacturing and distributing wristwatches to jewelers in surrounding areas of London. Hans Wilsdorf and brother-in-law, Alfred Davis officially changed the trademark to “Rolex” in 1908 and opened an office in Switzerland. Rolex received the first ever Official Chronometer Certification to be awarded to a wristwatch just two years later. Becoming the first in 1910, Rolex remains the record holder today for most certified chronometer movements in wristwatches.

Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis continued breaking records with the exceptional precision of Rolex wristwatches, awarded with a Class “A” precision certificate in 1914 from The Kew Observatory in Great Britain. The flawless designs of remarkable engineering are seen as clearly today as they had been recognized on those infamous early decades of the 20th century. Rolex wristwatches are certainly standing the test of time, with continued innovation and impeccable quality.

A previously-owned Rolex watch has been revered and suggested as one of the wisest investment choices in both England and America. With retail prices for brand new models rising, there has been an increased popularity and availability of previously-owned Rolex watches. Rolex watches, particularly GMT-Master, Daytona and Submariner models have proven to maintain, and often rise in value over time.

Rolex Wristwatch

As consumers, we may never see a more fitting time to invest in a classic timepiece by Rolex. With jewelry retailers offering previously-owned Rolex watches with CW21 certification at remarkably affordable rates, it is undoubtedly time (no pun intended) to invest in a previously-owned luxury Rolex watch. The time to invest in a Rolex is at an all time high for luxury previously owned models. Raymond Lee Jewelers prides itself in being an industry leader in luxury pre-owned watches.  Located in the heart of Boca Raton, Florida, Raymond Lee Jewelers can offer the best value high end watches on the web.

Whether purchased for a loved one (this includes you), or for future use as a family keepsake, there has never been a better time to invest in a previously-owned Rolex wristwatch. As the ultimate emblem of innovation, accomplishment and cultural heritage, a previously-owned Rolex watch is not only a wise investment, but a sentimental and symbolic one as well.
