A Video Tutorial to Vintage Touches, Complements of: Old Hollywood Glam

Here’s a simple way to get a vintage inspired look. Eventually we’ll be going into more advanced looks, but some of you may have never tried this look before and we don’t want to scare you off! Pair this video with the “Hint of Vintage” photo tutorial for the ultimate loveliness!

Tools: Foundation, foundation brush or sponge, translucent powder or light-weight powder, blush brush, bronzer, black liquid liner, black mascara, red lipstick

•      Start by applying an even layer of foundation to your face being sure to cover any redness, blemishes or dark circles.

•      Lightly dust your face with powder for a velvety finish.

•      Comb through your brows and fill them in using a brown pencil one shade darker than your natural color.

•      Sweep bronzing powder starting directly under your cheekbones, across your hair line and under your jaw line.

Breitling Superavenger

As a Gemologist I ordinarily do not write about watches but sometimes something so insane comes into our store that I cant help but talk about it.  What I am talking about is the Super Avenger (model #
A13370)  from Breitling.   Breitling is known for watches that make a statement and this one is no exception.  In fact if Super Avengers were a group of people this particular version would be the leader of the pack.-watch sell

What makes this model so special is that it has been decked out to the point at which there is no mistaking it for anything but amazing.  First it has been treated with a PVD coating to make it pitch black.  Then it has been completely encrusted in black diamonds all around the case and bracelet.  To top it off the bezel also has larger black diamonds channel set all around the dial.  The total carat weight is 40ctw.  This piece is suited for the guy who has everything.  Someone who lives life and lives it well.  If you party like a rockstar and have an extreme sense of style then this watch is for you.  Feel free to call me, Richard, your South Florida Jewelry Guru, if you have any questions or you want me to send this bad boy out to you right away.

The Rolex Day-Date Or Is It President?- Collateral Loan

Collateral Loan

Collateral Loan

The Rolex Day-Date is one of the most popular watches in Rolex’s history. Popularized by both politicians and movie stars, the Day-Date has become a symbol of wealth and power. Now many of you may know about this watch but you may not know what to call it. President, Day-Date or Presidential?

The real name for this model is Day-Date and it was released in 1956 as a niche model. Rolex was suffering a drop in sales and the Day-Date was quietly released, not many expected it to put an end to stagnant sales. Fortunately for Rolex the Day-Date’s popularity exploded and sales rose significantly. The early models due to the complexity of the watch, with its automatic movement, additional day and date discs was a very large and had a bulbous case back. This differs quite dramatically from the slim profile we have become accustomed to today.

The nickname, President, did not come into existence until later when Rolex changed the bracelet of the Day-Date to a gold-linked bracelet with a concealed clasp the is called “the President wristband.” Rolex perhaps trying to expand recognition for this watch in the U.S, capitalized on the wristbands name and gave one to then President Dwight Eisenhower. Rolex succeeded perhaps a bit too well because here in the United States the nickname the President (Presidential would gain popularity as well) overtook its actual name. In Europe and abroad, asking for a Rolex President will get you quizzical stares since the Day-Dates’ nickname never grew as popular as it did here. Collateral Loan.

The Day-Date or President has undergone only slight changed over the years. In 1972 a hack feature was introduced which allowed the second hand to be stopped instantly. Also around this time the “Quickset” feature was introduced, this allowed the wearer to change the date by pulling the button out half way and turning it. A great improvement over the old method where the crown would have to be turned round and round in order to manipulate the date.  Besides these internal changes the President is still holds the classic beauty that originally made it a hit among consumers.

The Breitling Emergency: Able To Send A Real Distress Signal!- Watch Sell

Watch Sell

Watch Sell

The Breitling Emergency is a quite frankly one of the most unique watches I have ever come across here at Raymond Lee Jewelers. With a though titanium case, coral dial and titanium Professional bracelet or a rubber sporty bracelet, the Breitling Emergency screams luxury while maintaining a rugged look. This is exactly what Breitling intended when they designed the Emergency, a watch sell that could survive the highest depths, the thickest jungles or the hottest deserts. and not look out of place at the opera. Legendary survivalist Bear Grylls from the show Man Vs. Wild wears a Breitling Emergency with a yellow face and rubber strap. We here at Raymond Lee Jewelers have the same exact watch for sale.

One of the most amazing features of the Breitling Emergency is its ability to send out a 121.5 MHz distress frequency for aviation or a 243.0 MHz distress frequency for military users. To activate the micro-transmitter one only has to unscrew a protective cap and pull out the antenna fully and activate the signal. This signal can be picked up by search plains flying at 20,000 feet and has a range of 90 nautical miles in normal flat terrain or calm seas. This astounding watch can be a life saver in the event of a flood, plane crash or if your lost at sea.
