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!

Hublot’s Human Rights Watch- Watch Repair

Watch Repair

Watch Repair

Everyday I come across luxury watch brands who have created limited edition watches to commemorate special occasions or corporate hallmarks; rarely do I see a watch brand craft a limited-run of timepieces solely created to benefit such a selfless cause. Hublot will release seven watches which will be auctioned off with all proceeds going to the Human Rights Watch Organization. These amazing pieces were created and designed to pay tribute to the Deceleration of Human Rights and Human Rights Watch’s never-ending quest on focusing international attention where ever human rights are violated.

One watch will be auctioned off at each of the seven different cities chosen to hold an annual Human Rights Watch dinner. Hublot is hoping each watch will bring in much-needed funds for this amazing organization. The cities are New York, Los Angeles, Geneva, Paris, San Francisco, Beirut and Saint Moritz. Watch repair.

Hublot partnered with world-renowned artists Roger Pfund to design the dial of this amazing watch; Pfund is best known for creating the current French Franc and a few of the designs of the Euro. The ceramic dial contains laser engraved micro-letters of the Deceleration of Human Rights. All 30 articles are on the dial divided into 60 lines that would represent each minute on the dial. On the right side of the dial at the three o’clock position is one of the seven cities where the fund-raising dinners will be held. The case is 43mm and the dial, leather band, case and bezel are all black.

Hublot Rushes to Meet China Luxury Boom- Watch Sell

Watch Sell

Watch Sell

I have written about Hublot (Big Bang Tutti Frutti) and china’s luxury watch boom in the past. The Swiss watch brand has been vigorously expanding its presence in the emerging Asian markets and is especially focused on China. In the past three years China and Hong Kong have surpassed all other markets to become the largest market for luxury watches. Naturally luxury brands, who have seen sales decline in Europe and America due to the global recession, are rushing to meet this new demand in the far East.

Hublot, which will have 15 stores in Asia by next year hopes to more than double that number. Much of this enthusiasm is coming from Hublot’s CEO Jean-Claude Biver, who is convinced that future profits will grow for the next 30 years, especially in China. Businesses across the world are flocking to Asia, China and Hong Kong and creating a rash of new millionaires in the process. Millionaires in Asia are expected to rise 8.8 percent annually through 2018. Japan and Europe are being swept by trends that embrace a less lavish lifestyle and Hublot views Asia as an oasis in the stagnating market. Sell watches.

There are some signs that Hublot may be taking a risk by betting on the Asian market. China economy has gone through explosive growth the past 10 years but will likely slow to 8.9 percent next year from 10 percent this year. Other luxury watch brands are not as optimistic as Hublot and are refraining from adding new stores in China till they are sure that this is not a “bubble.”

With the average cost of opening a store in China much cheaper than opening one in more traditional locations such as Paris and New York , Hublot is willing to take the risk. China rent rates hover around $100,000 a year compared to the outrageous price of more than $1 million in Paris.

We here at Raymond Lee Jewelers have many beautiful Hublot timepieces available at amazing prices.

What makes this watch unique is its size, measuring 41mm in diameter which is quite large for a ladies watch. Over sized watches has been a growing trend for men but lately luxury watch makers are taking a risk by introducing larger watches for women. Over the past two years this risk has paid off, as women that are willing to buck the trend and purchase over sized watches. The Hublot Big Bang Tutti Frutti Rose is definitely a large watch that stands out with its sporty and classy look.
