The Watches of “Two And A Half Men”

Can Two and Half Men go on without Charlie Sheen?

Is Ashton Kutcher dynamic and crazy enough to replace Charlie Sheen? Does he just have too much style?

 How are the writers of Two and Half Men kill off Sheen? Will the show still be entertaining?

I’ve been following Ashton’s passion for fine time pieces and now, if he hits my favorite show, he’ll have my whole heart! I think many of us felt like we were watching the real Sheen, and felt more like his reality show vs a “character” he was “acting” to be! It will be interesting to see what Ashton does for the show.

The Two Men producers have refused to comment on the many rumors, but seems Ashton will have a permanent spot in the new era.  After eight years, could a major change be a breath of fresh air, or the kiss of death?

Guess we will all find out on September 19th on CB S.

What would be the perfect revenge for Lorre?  Being to actually daydream of the funniest, most “Un-Charlie Sheen” way to die? Getting sober? Haha, being killed by healthy living! Or maybe because he jumped a cliff chasing after his beloved watch? You know, the one he destroyed a hotel room in NY?  In his defense, the Patek Philippe is worth $165K!  Don’t think the Swiss family wants their watch to be known for the owner strangling an “escort” and accusing her of stealing it! Oh well, the price of fame and exclusivity.

Introducing JA New York’s new designers | National Jeweler

National Jeweler published an article featuring the emerging jewelry designers that will be featured at the JA Summer Show, currently taking place at The Javits Center, New York, NY.  With enough time in between the NY Antique Jewelry & Watch Show and the IWJG Show, we were able to sneak in some time at the JA Summer Show.  Lucky us, we’ll have a sneak peak at the up and coming hottest trends in jewelry, and be able to say a quick hello to some vendors we’ve worked with in the past.

JA Summer Show

Of the jewelry designers featured in the article,G & G Creations stood out with some of the most incredible approaches to jewelry design that I’d ever seen. In fact, I’ve written fan mail already…

With a combined seven decades of experience in jewelry design and manufacturing, the newly formed Boston-based G&G Creations is a force to be reckoned with. In 2010, Vahe Ghazarian and Esin Guler and master gem setter Mihran Guler banded together to launch G&G Creations, a fabricator of high-end silver and karat gold designs.

Collections to date total four: Imprint features organic-looking lily pad shapes; Scroll features timeless swirl effects; Nyx, named for the Greek goddess of the night, showcases contrasting dark and light motifs (like skulls set with yellow gold accents); Faith pieces pay homage to religion. Couture or one-off pieces are also available.

All merchandise is made in the United States and starts at less than $1,000 retail. G&G currently has two retail accounts, including Boston’s Barmakian Jewelers. Fun fact: Sevan Biçakçi is a family friend of Esin and Mihran! – JCK

Masculine Monday: NY Antique Jewelry and Watch Show (and Tell)

 

 

Masculine Monday: Give Your Rolex Watch Away

Good Morning Everybody!  Hope that you’ve all rested up over the weekend, and that a case of the ‘Monday’s’ is not setting the mood for your day.  With Monday being reserved for our Masculine Monday Entries, today’s Masculine portion will come to you in a varied delivered way…

Today, Gents, our advice for some serious Girlfriend/Wife/Best Friend bonus points… give the lady your wristwatch.

Preferably, give her your Gents Rolex wristwatch!

Rolex GMT

We touched on this trend just as it was sparked a few months ago, where Jennifer Aniston and her men’s Rolex wristwatch was featured in our entry, ‘Breaking the Mold‘.  As time has passed, more and more gals are wanting a gents wristwatch, as opposed to a ladies model.

Along with the other most prevalent trends being shown by consumers at the New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show, which we’ll touch on later, many women are looking for Gents Rolex models for themselves. It has become one of the strongest trends withing the watch industry.

“Many women are looking for gents Rolex models for themselves. That is the new trend.” 

This comes straight from the source, the Raymond Lee Jewelers VP, who is currently exhibiting a carefully chosen selection of Raymond Lee Jewelers Antique Jewelry and Luxury Watches at the famous US Antique Show.

Being a true modern gentlemen with style and substance does require the ability to choose the perfect gift for the one you love. When the next Birthday or Anniversary rolls around, consider picking up your gal a Gents Rolex to light up her face with glee.

Better yet, find yourself a new timepiece to liven up the life on your wrist, and give her your current gents wristwatch as a gift. This will be both sweet and sentimental, and you’ll be thanking me in no time.

2012 Fashion Trends: Oriental Prints, Fur Trims and Short Hems Coming Soon!

Fashion Trends of 2012:

Expect to see prints of the Orient, Lace and Fur Trimming similar to the style of the 1920’s, and Mod Infused Early ’60s Hemlines

Thanks to great resources like Fashionising.com, getting a heads up on the next years fashion trends is within reach. While it’s still a bit early to predict what significantly different changes will take off with a fluster and what trends will fall as complete blunders in 2012, enough information is available to (at the very least). help us prepare the best way possible.

I can only hope that the biker-chic style that was so eminent in the stylings of 2011 remains steadfast as the year turns, as I still have to purchase both my motorcycle boots and jacket.  Of these two things… I have been virtual window shopping for the entirety of 2011.

Chanel Motorcycle Boots - Introduced During 2010 Fashion Week in NY

Philipp Plein Jacket - A MUST HAVE !!!

Now, that said.. Some new trends, both in prints, fits and hems are rumored to be big hits in the upcoming year of 2012. Of these, expect to see an increase in the street style wearing of Komono‘s, oriental prints will be more common, though expected to be a bit more subtle and floral in use. Exotic silks and authentic vintage Kimono’s would be great pre-planning purchases to be a well-prepared fashionista for 2012!

The vintage fashions of this year certainly will not die off and disappear, but they will morph just a bit. From the sophisticated ’70s style we’ve seen so much of this year, with the soft flowing curls and slinky fabrics, expect a shift into the style of the early 1960’s. We’re talking true Mod Girl stuff here, Peter pan collars, short hems, mod hair styles and the Twiggy fashioned eyeliner may be sneaking it’s way back into the fashion forefront.

This year has already opened itself up to many 1930’s inspired fashions, a trend heightened with the release of the Motion Picture, ‘Water for Elephants.’ For both Men and Women, there has been a throw-back to old-fashioned baseball caps, and early styled lace accented dressings for ladies. With the ‘Great Gatsby’ Film expected to be released in 2012, the same will be seen in relation to 1920’s Flapper Fashion.

Avoid costume like ensembles, as these will be easy to spot and difficult to avoid with an expected over-indulged availability of short black wigs and overdone Flapper dresses. Keep this classic trend modern by introducing the ’20s presence in your style in a minimalistic way. Wide-leg trousers and subtle fur trims are great ways to achieve this style without going overboard.

Wide-Leg Trousers

The Chanel 'Le Boy' (A MUST HAVE for 2012!)

The Chanel ‘Le Boy’ is the ultimate glamour bag, with the classic golden braided strap, and intricate lettered perfection of ‘CHANEL’ stitched along the bag’s wide end, these little puppies will be booming in popularity… I want the red one, bad. Already. 🙂

Fashionising.com: Chanel 'Le Boy'

So, there you have it. A few fashion predictors to help you ease your way into a fashionable 2012 from start to finish. Now, we’ll get to what’s pressing currently, which is the preparation for bathing suit season, of course! Get ready for high waists, retro cuts and prints, the return of the one-piece (with a twist), and the early signs of the 1990’s fashion comebacks…

‘Olivia Wilde’ #15 on Maxim’s ‘2011 Hot 100’: Romance Rumors with Bradley Cooper and Justin Timberlake Run Wilde!

unrealitymay.com: Olivia Wilde Best 15 Photos

This picture makes me want to break out in Peter Gabriel‘s, ‘In Your Eyes.’

Olivia Wilde: Securing Check at LAX (notice the AWESOME tee!?)

We are wild over Olivia Wilde! You may remember first spotting this charismatic actress during her Abercrombie Modeling days. She has since earned herself accolades for her impressively versatile acting chops, with a recurring role on the hit sitcom, ‘House’ and an upcoming role in July’s ‘Cowboys and Indians.’

Wilde dubs herself the “eBay Queen,” exclaiming that she’s not exaggerating when she notes spending hours at a time antique jewelry and clothing eBay browsing.

While the graceful and unique Olivia Wilde has had an outstanding career throughout these past five years, her work schedule and personal matters unfortunately resulted in the dissolution of her seven year marriage to Tao Ruspoli, a photographer and documentary film maker. Since the split, a spike in media focus and paparazzi attention has been invested in discovering any new romantic interests in the life of Olivia Wilde.

Bradley Cooper Rumors:

Bradley Cooper getting Wilde with Olivia? Maybe. ‘The Hangover Part II‘ star and Olivia Wilde were spotted getting their flirt on at an industry party in New York earlier this week. -via PopEater.com

Bradley Cooper, 35, has just recently called it quits with longtime girlfriend Renee Zellweger, leaving him open to many romantic rumors circulating, as well. They include Jennifer Aniston, Scarlett Johansson and a few other gorgeous Actresseses, Models and Dancers. 

“Life & Style is reporting that newly single Olivia Wilde and Bradley Cooper have been out together twice since the pair hooked up at the Boom Boom Room last Saturday. The two were introduced while attending the Saturday Night Live finale after party and quickly got very chatty with each other.” –PerezHilton.com

Watch the PopEater Video of these two getting steamy: http://www.popeater.com/2011/05/25/olivia-wilde-bradley-cooper-dating/

Justin Timberlake Rumors:

Last we heard about rumored Justin Timberlake/Olivia Wilde romance, JT’s rep was saying that the two are JUST FRIENDS, and we were NOT convinced.

Then we heard that the two were seen partying with Mila Kunis at last weekend’s SNL afterparty, “chatting” the night away and then leaving the party “at the same time.” via: PerezHilton.com Rumor Mill 

According to Celebrity Buzz Reports, JT was spotted last month ‘dancing the night away’ with costar Olivia Wilde in Hollywood.  They were seen together once again last week at Timberlake’s NYC Restaurant, ‘Southern Hospitality‘. Reps for both parties, of course, say that the two are ‘just friends’ and that both are single. 

Rumors about a romance between these two skyrocketed following the announcement that Olivia would play Justin Timberlake’s Mother in an upcoming movie by Andrew Niccol. Not officially released with a title, the  movie is said to be about “a society where aging stops at 25 and time has become the currency. The rich are immortal and the rest struggle to stay alive.”

Wilde With Glamour

When this gal cleans up, she really shows off her over-achieving style skills. With smokey, sultry eye makeup and incredible pieces of jewelry, Olivia Wilde can be found on a hefty variety of best dressed lists.

At the 2010 Golden Globes Awards she was seen wearing a Gucci gown accessorized with an ornate black onyx and diamond fan platinum bangle from Tiffany & Co. worth $165000. She wore a creamy yellow gown with soft ruffles accessorized with an expensive bracelet and vintage style earrings to the 2010 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in California hosted by Gaydon Carter.

“It’s basically who we are anyway,” Christina told Access Hollywood on Monday, explaining the show from former “SNL” writer Emily Spivey and “SNL” producer Lorne Michaels. “[It’s about] being a parent and [balancing] work, and, all of us. It’s kind of us.”

Milla Jovovich is the New Face of Jacob & Co.- Watch Sell

Jovovich at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival.

Fashion Icon: Milla Jovovich becomes Brand Ambassador for Jacob & Co.

Milla Jovovich is a model and actress that has seen her career sky rocket in the last decade. Many of you may know her from The Fifth Element and The Resident Evil series of movies. Milla Jovovich is not your typical Hollywood actress; she immigrated from the Soviet Union at a very early age and started to model at nine to help support her family. Since that early age Ms. Jovovich has worked exhaustively to get her modeling and acting career off the grown, by her late teens she had successfully found her way into many film sets. Today Ms. Jovovich is a multi-millionaire, business entrepreneur and the new face of the luxury jewelry company, Jacob & Co.

It is no wonder that Jacob & Co. chose Milla as their new brand ambassador. Her story of success strongly reflects Jacob and Co. modest origins, both started from humble roots and through hard work  rose to the top. Jacob & Co. was looking for the perfect personality that would closely fit their image: someone who was a sophisticated world traveler, self-accomplished and exudes an assertive feminine personality.

Jacob & Co.  was founded in 1981 by Jacob Arabo, this relatively new NYC based watch company has been a hit with celebrities and watch aficionados alike. Jacob Arabo grew up in Russia and immigrated to the United States as a young boy. Mr. Arabo has always had a strong interest for jewelry and decided to enroll into jewelry design school in order to flame his passion. He graduated top of his class and immediately opened a small both in New York City’s diamond district. His talents did not go unnoticed and soon he was commissioned to design pieces for a number of jewelry brands and private clients.

For over a decade Jacob Arabo was hard at work trying to enlarge his presence in the jewelry industry; he got his big break when he started to designing jewelry and watches for the music industry. Word spread quickly and soon Jacob Arabo was the top jeweler of the music world. Artists loved his unique style and his willingness to experiment with different styles.

Jacob & Co. most successful watch was the Five Time Zone watch, this piece proved very popular as many of Jacob Arabo’s clients often traveled around the world and needed a watch that displayed multiple time zones. Featuring a main dial set to local time and four smaller dials showing the time in New York, LA, Tokyo and Paris. Many models have been released often adjourned with diamonds around the bezel; the case is made in stainless steel, gold or platinum. Each model of this watch comes with different colored bands that can be interchanged easily. Newer collections incorporate Arabo’s singular sense of style and truly beautiful wristwatches.

If you’re in the market for a glamorous, simplistic or elegant new watch, visit us at Raymond Lee Jewelers in Boca Raton, FL.

We are one of the largest watch buyers and sellers in South Florida.

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.
