Omega DeVille at Raymond Lee Jewelers

Since 2006 Daniel Craig has become synonymous with the Omega brand of watches ever since he donned a tux and a  Omega watch in the James Bond movie, Casino Royale. There was much controversy over the decision to choose blond-haired Craig for the traditionally black-haired bond; what caused little controversy was the watch on Craigs wrist. This new bond needed a watch that was both masculine and elegant, the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean model 2900.50.91 was chosen. The Planet Ocean has a diameter of 45.5 mm and was on a sporty black rubber band with a black dial. This was the first time an Omega watch was shown in a Bond film with a black dial, all other Omegas had a blue dial. Later in the film Bond is shown wearing a Coaxial version of Omega Seamaster Professional with a blue dial model 222.80.00. In Quantum of Solace, James Bond only wears a Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 M  model 2201.50.00 with  Coaxial technology, black dial and a stainless steel strap.

Today Daniel Craig is one of Omega’s biggest watch ambassadors and is often seeing wearing some amazing timepieces from their collection. Lately he has been spotted wearing an Omega DeVille Hour Vision Blue. This is a special version of the DeVille which was created in support of ORBIS International and its fight against preventable blindness.

The beautiful wristwatch features a sleek steel case with a leather strap and a stunning metallic blue dial with a sun-brushed design. The stainless steel case is considerably more slim than Omega’s large watches such as the Seamaster, measuring 41 mm. The watch has Omega’s most celebrated movement, the Co-Axial caliber 8500 which is viewable through the sapphire crystal on the caseback. The model number for this new edition is 431.

ORBIS is an organization which delivers eye care to some of the world’s most remote and developing regions; founded in 1982 ORBIS has helped over 12 million people receive medical care. Omega has agreed to donate one million dollars from its sale of this special edition.

Raymond Lee Jewelers’ showroom has many Omega watches for sale at incredible prices. If you are not looking for a wristwatch we are also Florida Gold Store, we buy and sell gold at competitive rates.

Jewelry Terminology: What is a Ruby?

Jewelry Terminology

Jewelry Terminology

In Jewelry Terminology a ruby is considered one of the four precious stones (together with the emerald, sapphire, and diamond). The color of rubies generally ranges from pink to blood-red, but they can also be brownish or purplish. The chemical formula for a ruby is aluminum oxide with chromium (the element responsible for giving the gemstone its red color), or simply, Al2O3:Cr.

Color is the most determining factor in a ruby’s value. Rubies that are brighter or a pigeon blood-red color are deemed as the most valuable. Regardless of clarity, the color is the most important in determining a ruby’s price – although clarity should not be completely ignored. A ruby that looks flawless without any inclusions may have been treated, which would depreciate its value.

As mentioned in a previous blog, all natural stones have imperfects, and rubies are not excluded from this fact. Gemologists use the inclusions of rutile needles to distinguish them from synthetic or modified gemstones. Nowadays, most rubies are treated in some form of another (usually heat treatments), but natural rubies of excellent quality that have been left untreated can fetch huge premiums.
