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.

GQ has also been bitten by the Rolex bug, as Ted Stafford names the Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner Watch of the Week at GQ.com’s Style headquarters. His take:

“What do I love about this watch most (aside from the fact that Mark Sanchez makes it look so damn good on our September cover)? Its precision-brushed steel bracelet with that edgy green bezel. It’s straight up sophisticated luxury. Jets fan or not I say go for the green, folks.”

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Taken with Triple Tourbillon Titanium of Reverso à Triptyque Timepiece

A Very Happy Friday to Our Readers, Friends and Visitors!

The Feature Friday item is of particular significance today, as it may be one of the most exquisitely designed and brilliantly constructed timepieces I may ever be granted the opportunity to highlight.  A vortex of research was sparked by my absolute enchantment with the Feature Friday visual preview, which was provided by the great Richard Resnik (our Professional Custom Jewelry Designer, here at Raymond Lee Jewelers) yesterday.

I can say with absolute certainty that this is the first time I’ve experienced an unyielding fervency for researching timepiece mechanics, design and history. I drove home magnetically drawn to the virtual library of information that patiently waited for me, silently sitting inside my laptops’ wireless connection.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Triptyque


After brushing up on over a century of timepiece history, I believe it to be a fair and just proclamation that Jaeger-LeCoultre is among the most exceptional, clever and creative fine-watchmaking manufacturers.

A description of the immaculate creation of the Reverso à triptyque timpepiece, manufactured by Jaeger-LeCoultre is worded beautifully by an unlisted author here on  thewatchquote.com. This detailed overview  just so happens to describe this particular timepiece by Jaeger-LeCoultre with a level of precision and perfection comparable to the luxury watch itself.

Respect for watchmaking tradition is no empty phrase for Jaeger-LeCoultre. Rather, it’s an integral part of the Manufacture’s philosophy, which pays equal respect to avant-garde creativity and innovativeness.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Ultra Thin Tribute

Mad Men is one of those lucky shows that gets tremendous critical acclaim and has a dedicated following of viewers. Mad Men premiered in 2007 and is in its fourth season, in that time it has won 13 Emmys, 4 Golden Globes and consistently has extraordinary high ratings. Set in a the 1960’s and chronicling the lives of agents at a top ad agency, the show has become widely known for its visual style and wardrobe. The series is a veritable “who’s who” of luxury vintage watches. For example the lead character, Don Draper, wears a vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Classique throughout the series. This version like all Reverso features a 18 carat yellow-gold case that can be swiveled around to reveal either a personalized image, another dial, an engraving or a skeleton watch back.

This month Jaeger-LeCoultre invited Jon Hamm who plays Don Draper to introduce their latest model in the Reverso collection, the Grande Reverso Ultra Thin “Tribute to 1931.” Unlike the many watches that are on the market currently this beautiful new watch trades elaborate design for a classic look. This watch exudes simplicity and bucks the trend of having an extremely large case; the watch is slim, sleek and snugly rests against the wrist.

The Grande Reverso Ultra Thin comes in pink gold, features a black or white dial with the iconic dagger-shaped hands and baton-type hour markers. The movement is a 21 jewel mechanical manually-wound movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 822, which is crafted, assembled and decorated by hand.
The designers wanted to create a modern interpretation of the original Reverso while maintaining the Art Deco stylings that made the original so popular. They more than succeed in this endeavor.  This new watch is actually one of the slimmest Reverso ever created and instantly creates a luxurious look whither you’re wearing jeans or a suit.
