Wild Watch of the Week Award!- watch sell

Breitling Superavenger

As a Gemologist I ordinarily do not write about watches but sometimes something so insane comes into our store that I cant help but talk about it.  What I am talking about is the Super Avenger (model #
A13370)  from Breitling.   Breitling is known for watches that make a statement and this one is no exception.  In fact if Super Avengers were a group of people this particular version would be the leader of the pack.-watch sell

What makes this model so special is that it has been decked out to the point at which there is no mistaking it for anything but amazing.  First it has been treated with a PVD coating to make it pitch black.  Then it has been completely encrusted in black diamonds all around the case and bracelet.  To top it off the bezel also has larger black diamonds channel set all around the dial.  The total carat weight is 40ctw.  This piece is suited for the guy who has everything.  Someone who lives life and lives it well.  If you party like a rockstar and have an extreme sense of style then this watch is for you.  Feel free to call me, Richard, your South Florida Jewelry Guru, if you have any questions or you want me to send this bad boy out to you right away.

The Breitling Emergency: Able To Send A Real Distress Signal!- Watch Sell

Watch Sell

Watch Sell

The Breitling Emergency is a quite frankly one of the most unique watches I have ever come across here at Raymond Lee Jewelers. With a though titanium case, coral dial and titanium Professional bracelet or a rubber sporty bracelet, the Breitling Emergency screams luxury while maintaining a rugged look. This is exactly what Breitling intended when they designed the Emergency, a watch sell that could survive the highest depths, the thickest jungles or the hottest deserts. and not look out of place at the opera. Legendary survivalist Bear Grylls from the show Man Vs. Wild wears a Breitling Emergency with a yellow face and rubber strap. We here at Raymond Lee Jewelers have the same exact watch for sale.

One of the most amazing features of the Breitling Emergency is its ability to send out a 121.5 MHz distress frequency for aviation or a 243.0 MHz distress frequency for military users. To activate the micro-transmitter one only has to unscrew a protective cap and pull out the antenna fully and activate the signal. This signal can be picked up by search plains flying at 20,000 feet and has a range of 90 nautical miles in normal flat terrain or calm seas. This astounding watch can be a life saver in the event of a flood, plane crash or if your lost at sea.

Raymondleejeweler – A Great Review!

Watch Repair

“My husband recently damaged his watch while walking hurriedly towards his car one morning. He banged his wristwatch on the door and there on the floor lies pieces of the bracelet. It was his most valuable accessory and he always wore it anywhere he went. I suggested that he take his watch to a raymondleejeweler and have it fixed. I came across the name in the internet.

Good thing I took note of it, probably I was anticipating that something like this would happen. And it sure did. When my husband came home from the watch repair shop, he was ecstatic and his smile was from ear to ear. He showed me his newly-repaired watch and lo and behold, it was just like brand new! The craftsmanship was so excellent you couldn’t tell that it was broken a couple of days ago.

Satisfied with the result, my husband rummaged through his drawer and took out other watches he bought years back which stopped ticking for some reason. He said he’s going to take these to the watch repair shop ratherl than just throwing them away.”

This is from an anonymous online review in a blog. We hope you will take advantage of the many online resources that allow you to review our proud company!

World’s Largest Coin Sells For $4 Million in Austria

What weighs 220-pounds, is made from the purest 999.99/1000 gold, and sells for $4 million? The world’s largest coin.

The coin bears a large image of Queen Elizabeth II on one side, while the other side has three maple leaves. Originally on loan to the “Munzkabinett” of the Kunthistorisches Museum in Vienna, which houses one of the world’s largest coin collections.

Aside from the coin’s enormous size, what was responsible for such a high sales value? The rocketing price of gold  ($1162 / oz as of 7/28/10). The face value of this coin is worth “only” $960,000, but gold’s market value has increased the worth of this coin to up to $4 million. The patron responsible for paying this hefty value was Oro Direct, a Spanish precious metal trading company.

Rolex Box and Papers: Why Are They So Important?

Why is it important to keep the box and papers that come with your Rolex?

Buying a Rolex is much more than buying a watch; you are making an investment. When buying a pre-owned Rolex, you can usually get close to, if not more, than your original purchase price for your watch years later. Rolex’s are made to hold their value over time.

To insure the most amount of money for your Rolex make sure you keep the box and papers it came with. Rolex boxes sell for hundreds of dollars on their own and are an integral part of owning a Rolex. The boxes also make great displays for jewelry stores who are interested in buying them.

Even more important than the box are the papers. The papers include warranty papers that give your watch a one year warranty from Rolex with the model and serial number printed on it. This paper also guarantees the authenticity of your watch. Other papers include the instruction booklet and any other various paper that comes with a Rolex.

Having a complete set of the Rolex watch itself, the box, and papers insure that you will receive the highest payment in the event you decide to sell it. A pre-owned watch that is part of a full set of all three components is very desirable and can only add value to your timepiece.

Rolex Inner Bezel Engraving

In the last couple of years Rolex started to engrave the inner bezel of its watches. It helps deter replicas and makes it easier to read the serial number. The serial number is engraved at the 6 o’clock position of the inner bezel. Below are a few examples from a Rolex GMT-Master II with a Green Dial 116718.
