Tubular Tuesdays: Timepieces in the Shop

Welcome back from the long weekend readers! Today’s post has been taken over by yellow gold fever with a few of the current timepieces in the shop. Yellow gold is making a comeback with its arm tones and luxe look, and these 5 watches are our top tick-picks for your wrists.

Patek Philippe 3671 18K Yellow Gold Square Watch

In 1845 Antoni Patek joined with the French watchmaker Adrien Philippe and Patek Philippe & Co was founded in 1851.Credited with inventing the watch as we know it, this brand invented the perpetual calendar, split-seconds hand, chronograph, and minute repeater in watches. This 18kt rare gold stunner makes an interesting and classic addition to a watch collection.

Cartier Tank Francaise 18kt Men’s Full Size Watch

 

In 1917, Cartier debuted its Tank watch, inspired by the Renault tanks that Cartier observed during World War I. The Tank Francaise’ s smooth, rounded edges and clean lines set a standard for elegance, while the flawless integration of the bracelet into the watch’s case itself create a unified and uninterrupted tableau of sophistication. The Cartier Tank Francaise is an icon, and a necessity for any complete watch wardrobe.

Rolex Daytona 16528 18kt Mens Watch

This chronograph is named for the famous Rolex 24 at Daytona, and is prized for its accuracy. The Zenith movement featured in the seconds series is considered the best and most accurate of the Chronograph series to date. This increasingly rare yellow gold Daytona is masculine, sporty, precise and above all – elite.

Rolex Day-Date 18038 Presidential White Diamond Dial

Given to President Eisenhower by Rolex, the Day Date model (named so for its day and date display windows at 12 and 3, respectively) earned its nickname the “President.” To this day, several subsequent Commanders-in-Chief have also worn this Presidential model. This specific timepiece stands out with a beautiful white diamond and Roman numeral dial.

Rolex Presidential 179158 18kt

Last, but certainly not least, the Pièce de résistance of Tubular Tuesday is this 2001 Oyster Perpetual Datejust with Tahitian Mother of Pearl and diamond dial and a diamond bezel with diamond accents on the case. This elegant, stunning watch is sure to stand out.

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.

Tubular Tuesdays: In The Shop

A Picture Perfect Peek at Three Tremendous Timepieces of the Raymond Lee Jewelers Inventory… Today.

The Rolex Submariner 16610

The Rolex Submariner 16610 is the classic diving watch.  It’s 904L stainless steel case is able to withstand depths up to 300 meters (1,000 feet).  With a 40mm case it is on the larger size for gents watches.  As a standard, men’s watches are usually 36-40 mm.  The Submariner remains one of Rolex’s most popular watches. Not only is this gorgeous timepiece classic, it’s also on-trend; GQ’s September cover features Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez wearing this bright, modern timepiece.

The Rolex Datejust Masterpiece 81339

This 18K white gold stunner features a Tahitian Mother of Pearl dial that lends an air of sophistication and uniqueness. Add to this the double row of diamonds encircling the face of the watch, the scratch resistant sapphire crystal, and the diamond dial, and this watch becomes a true collectors piece.

The Rolex Daytona 116589

Introduced in 1963, the Daytona collection was designed to fit the needs of racecar drivers. Whether you’re looking to perfectly measure your lap time, or you’re simply a fan of beautiful timepieces, this particular Daytona is in a league of its own. Cased in white gold, the dial is mother of pearl with diamonds, surrounded by a bezel of diamonds, and capped off with a supple black leather band.

Readers, which of these pre-owned luxury watches would you most like to own?

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.”

What is the IT color?

What is the IT color?

ALL OF THEM! Every where I look, COLOR, COLOR, and more COLOR! I’m finding color where once color wasn’t! First designer handbags, then watches, what’s next? Socks, tennis shoes, and sunglasses! Maybe in this cold, grey environment with all financial and global turmoil, we need to see sunshine and rainbows when we can’t find our spirit any where else? Well then, good for us!

Rolex, Cartier and even some amazing great colors on David Yurman cocktail rings!  These are fashion forward styles, but found a retailer on EBay that helps all of us everyday people. Check out this site:

Rolex has COLOR!

http://stores.ebay.com/RLJ-Designer-Jewelry-and-Watches

Color everywhere!  I see color in shoes never seen before! Who knew florescent yellow could be such a great spring color to wear with something as casual as jeans! Almost anything goes!

Even in the luggage business! Something as laptop sleeves and carriers, they are not just black or brown anymore! When we want to make a statement, we don’t want to stop with our clothes or shoes, we take it all the way!!!

In the kitchen, we see color in knives, in our mixing bowls and in our Kitchen Aids.  I hope we never see this trend end, because I feel like my eyes just can’t get enough of COLOR!

Pink: But not just any pink! Honeysuckle pink (a bright, almost reddish hue) was voted the color of the year by Pantone
