I have written blogs in the past extolling the virtues of our amazing watchmaker, Igor Polotsky. A man who through his extraordinary skills and quality of work has greatly expanded Raymond Lee Jewelers’ reputation as one of the best watch repair sites in Florida. His skills as a fully certified CW21 watchmaker have become so well known that one of Florida’s largest newspaper has written an article detailing the career of our watchmaker, Igor Polotsky.

On Friday the 4th of February, The Orlando Sentinel wrote a terrific piece on Raymond Lee Jewelers’ own watchmaker entitled, Watchmaker Builds on Time-Honored Craft. The article tells of his rise from a 17 year old watch apprentice in Russia to the one of the most skilled and heavily certified watchmakers in the United States. Mr. Polotsky honed his skills in Moscow’s first watch factory and then in the late 80’s started to work for Tiffany & Co. Watch Repair.

Raymond Lee Jewelers’ was lucky enough to have Mr. Polotsky join our team in 2009. Since his arrival at our store he has amassed a dedicated following of customers who only choose him for their watch repairs. Raymond Lee Jewelers is proud to have a staff that is truly the best of the best; we have two exceptional full time jewelers, a very experienced gemologist, a sales staff with decades of combined experience, highly trusted jewelry buyers and even one of the top buyers of luxury hand bags. Come into Raymond Lee Jewelers to see what all of South Florida AND Orlando has been raving about!

Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Extra-Slim: A History

watch sell

Image via Wikipedia

The Vacheron Constantin Patrimony is a unique watch for its name. The word “patrimony” implies a succession of generations of a model that was intended to enjoy continuing success after its creation.

Founded  in Geneva, Vacheron Constantin commands the widest respect in the field of retailing and watchmaking. Why? Because this brand is the oldest continuous manufacturer of watches in the world.

In 1972 Vacheron Constantin launched the Overseas Chronograph range. This particular model had screw-in winding crowns and push-pieces. Shortly after, followed the expensive Kalla jewelry watches. Introduced in 1955, the Patrimony Extra-Slim is  a widely recognized timepiece for the 20th century. The height of the movement is measured at precisely 1.64 mm (1/16 in) and it is therefore thought to be the slimmest mechanical movement in the world. Its 20.8 mm (1 3/16 in) diameter case houses a five-part bridge with over 60 components to it. The watch also features a manual winding movement.

The latest model to join this range is the Patrimony Contemporaine. The watch has a 40 mm diameter and elongated baton numerals on its frosted platinum dial.
