The Allure of Collecting Vintage Rolex- Watch Sell

Collecting wristwatches is one of those hobbies that starts off innocently enough but can quickly turn into an all consuming passion. You may start out young collecting some Timex‘s, a Casio or two and if your lucky, a Seiko. Then you are off to college and your taste gets a bit more sophisticated. You want something to celebrate your independence, so  you splurge and get a rugged Swiss Military watch.

After two years of reading Baudelaire, Chomsky and Nietzsche you want a watch that reflects your new found maturity and you upgrade to a Hamilton. Time flies by and soon your walking across the stage in your cap and gown  and your graduation gift on your wrist; a brand new Movado. This Movado is your first introduction into the luxury watch market, and now you are hooked.

As you move up the corporate ladder, you may also desire to upgrade your timepiece from Movado to Tag Heur, Tag Heur to Omega, and from Omega to your Pièce de résistance: A Brand New Rolex! After that first Rolex you never look back and you have officially become a Rolex watch collector.

6605’s Movement

Rolex has one of the largest communities of watch collectors in the world, and with its amazing history and tremendous impact on the watch industry, it is easy to understand the strong following. Collectors respect the fact that Rolex has  practically invented the modern day wristwatch, the water resistant case and the self-winding mechanism. Another reason why collectors choose Rolex is the fact that the company controls every step of production of it watches, and keeps meticulous record of every piece, making identifying and collecting Rolex watches much easier.

This ease of identification plays a major role in the collector community as it allows collectors to identify age, model and serial number of every Rolex that they acquire. All these factors combined with Rolex’s brand recognition create an amazing resale value, Rolex watches can be sold quickly and at a very minimal loss. Often times you can purchase a Rolex wear it for years and sell it at only a fraction below its original retail value; this is why many collectors chase after rare vintage models whose value will only increase over the years.

A look Under the Case Back

Raymond Lee Jewelers was luck enough to get a rare vintage Rolex Datejust model 6605. As you can see from this picture, the timepiece is in amazing condition. The dial still retains its satin black finish. Its face is free from any scratches, and all of the mechanics are in excellent condition. One thing to I can’t stop marveling at is the watches movement. This watch was produced around 1954, and the smooth and fluid movement is a work of art.

Rolex introduced this model of Datejust 6605 at the Basel Fair and for the first time. It was the first production featuring the Cyclops magnifying bubble that you now find in all Rolex models. If you are looking for a piece of watch history, look no further than this amazing wristwatch!

Concord: A History- Watch Sell

Watch Sell

Watch Sell

Founded in 1908 in Bienne, Switzerland, Concord is one of the worlds most renowned makers of technical watches. For over a century Concord has developed innovative and extremely complex technical features for its watches.

When Concord was created the luxury watch market was saturated with competitors, each vying for a limited number of clientele. Concord carved out a niche for itself by creating watches that could be considered works of art. Each watch was made out of platinum and accented with diamonds, emeralds, rubies and sapphires. Each gem was rigorously studied and only those that precisely matched the appearance of the watch were chosen. This practice continued for decades and eventually led the release of  La Scala Grande, a watch that had 292 brilliant-cut diamonds. It was with this laboriously adherence to perfection that Concord was able to steadily build a loyal clientele.

In 1920 Concord began to focus more intently on watch design and creating complex technical features that its competitors could not match. This led to the unveiling of the Concord Ring clock (a portable eighth day alarm clock) that would become one of Concords best selling watches; many head of states swore by its precise alarm.

In 1969 Concord was purchased by the Movado Group, which owns Movado, Ebel, ESQ Coach, Hugo Boss, Juicy Couture watches, Lacoste and Tommy Hilfiger watches. This new ownership led to a period of great success for Concord. During this time Concord tapped into its decades of technical expertise and created the Delirium watch in 1979,  the thinnest watch ever made at the time at 1.98 mm thick. Later a delirium 2 which was released which was even thinner, measuring at a then amazing 1.5 mm.

In 1980 Concord continued to flourish with its release of the Mariner sports watch and 1986 the Saratoga. Both of these watches would have various new versions released over the years that proved just as popular as the original. One version of the Saratoga, the Exor, released in 1995 was inspired by the Concord designs of the past. The Exor was so heavily decorated with gems that it was ranked among the world’s most expensive jeweled creations. Watch Sell.

Concord watches of today have three main categories of style: sport, fashion and sport luxury.   Some of the most popular models includes  Bennington, the Carlton,  La Scala, Sportivo and the Veneto. The Bennington’s are water resistant watches that have crocodile straps and come in 18K yellow gold or stainless steel. The Carlton is sleek and stylish and comes with a mother-of-pearl dial and is also water resistant. La Scala has a retro, geometric design with its many angles and curves. The Sportivo combines a sporty look with flair and is offered in stainless steel with diamonds. The Veneto is available in 18K gold and comes in either a square, round, rectangular, or Tonneau case and is encrusted with diamonds.

Movado Museum Watch- Watch Sell

Movado was founded in 1881 iWatch Selln the small village of Le-Chaux-Fonds, Switzerland, by 19 year old Achilles Ditesheim. 129 years later Movado has stood the test of time by providing luxury watches that are both artistic and refined. The name Movado, means “always in motion” in the language of Esperanto (an artificial language based on common European languages) and is an excellent way to describe the history of the company. Movado has stayed relevant in a  market that became increasingly competitive by continuously creating innovated new watches. This inspiring forward thinking has resulted in over 100 patents and 200 international awards in watch design and time technology.

Perhaps Movado’s most influential watch is the Movado Museum Watch which is defined by a single gold dot symbolizing the sun at high noon, the hands suggesting the movement of the earth. Created by Nathan George Horwitt in 1947, Horwitt was the first artist at Movado to explore the concept of time as design. This watch became so popular and was held with such high regard that it became the first watch to be displayed at the Museum of Modern Art.

Now you can wear a piece of watch history on your wrist, Raymond Lee Jewelers is offering this beautiful and artistic timepiece at an amazing price. We are one of South Florida’s largest watch sell.

Ebel Watch Repair

Ebel watch repair should be trusted only to a CW21 watchmaker. At Raymond Lee Jewelers we have on staff a CW21 watchmaker. Sure, you can walk into a jewelry and get a new battery in your Ebel for 2 bucks. Ever wonder what they are doing for 2 bucks? They pop the back off with a knife, remove the battery, replace it and pop the case back on. This could work for you and it could work forever.

What happens if you go swim with your watch or take a shower, better yet get caught in a rain storm? Your Ebel could fill up with water or get condensation under the crystal. This could potentially completely ruin your watch. Ebel watches are expensive. Is it really worth wrecking your watch to save a few bucks getting a cheap while you wait battery job?

When you bring your Ebel watch or other luxury watch to Raymond Lee Jewelers our factory trained watchmaker performs a factory style job. After the battery has been replaced, the case back gasket is replaced to maintain the water resistance of your timepiece. When the job is complete your watch is put on our Witschi Proofmaster M, which test for leaks. This will make sure your watch remains water-resistant.
