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?

Please, Meet This Valiant Vintage Omega Seamaster

Vintage Omega Seamaster Wristwatch for $595!

Given the homage we are currently paying in men’s wristwatch trends to classic, vintage style wristwatches with narrower bracelets and a large classic case, this valiantly designed, nostalgic timepiece had to be mentioned and shown to you here. If you’re still in need of that fifth and final Summer Essential, boys… Consider this awesome Omega wristwtch, available for only $595 at the Raymond Lee Jewelers eBay Store.

Good Morning, All!  While browsing our eBay store this morning, I came across this fantastic vintage watch by Omega. The model is Seamaster, with a stainless steel case and black leather bracelet. A bit of history about Omega’s Seamaster Series:

At the time the Seamaster was introduced in 1948, standard watches were extremely susceptible to water damage from even a dip in a sink or tub. The Seamaster was created as a line of standard dress-style watches which were ‘waterproof’ (as they called them then) suitable for swimming and other light water activities. Their water resistance then is about comparable to a 10 to 30 meter rating today. The now common diver’s watch style was unknown at that time.

Rolex Unveils The Ladies Datejust Special Edition- Watch Repair

Watch Repair

Watch Repair

The Rolex ladies Datejust has seen many irritations over the years and has become one of Rolex’s most sought after watches. Its sleek design, elegantly petite case and classic femininity ascetics have aspired women all over the world to adorn their wrists with this stunning wristwatch. The Rolex ladies Datejust’s radiance is only matched by its near perfect time keeping abilities. This model could never have garnered such a following by relying on its resplendent looks alone; Rolex ensured that every Rolex Datejust was created with one of the most sophisticated and precise self-winding movements on the market.

Due to its popularity ever few years Rolex will release a special edition of this watch, these special editions tend to forgo elegant simplicity for an provocative intricacy. And this year is no different! Rolex has released the 2011 Ladies Datejust Special Edition encased for the first time ever in 18ct Everose gold. This bold new edition features a brand new dial design and materiel, creating an extraordinary one of a kind look.

One of the first new design change that really caught my eye was the 18ct Everose gold case, bezel and bracelet. The Datejust traditionally is found in 18ct yellow gold and stainless steel which is a very timeless air to it but does not stand out as much as the Everose gold. This seductive gold gives this watch a personality all its own; mixing serenity and vitality it is no wonder the special edition has watch enthusiasts clamoring for more.

The most significant change is the Datejust’s dial which has been transformed into truly outstanding piece of art. The regular dial was replaced with a Gold dust dream dial which is a mixture of mother-of-pearl and gold dust. The gold dust sparkles and releases stunning iridescent reflections that allow the mother-of-pearl to shimmer with every ray of light.  The dial design has also been updated with an angelic display of gold vines and leaves; the new dial is a complete departure from the customary Rolex models which normally have very stark and simple dials.

The Rolex ladies Datejust special edition has a 34 mm case set with 12 brilliant cut diamonds and is water resistant up to 100 meters. It also features bidirectional self-winding movement and a oyster five piece link band.

At Raymond Lee Jewelers, we offer luxury Watch Repair, as well as a wide selection of both ladies and mens Datejust Rolex wristwatch models.

Rolex Watches: Time to Invest

Exquisite Timepieces.. Ahead of Their Time 

Rolex watches have been an icon of ingenuity, precision and craftsmanship since the early 1900’s. It was over a hundred years ago that Rolex wristwatches designated the ultimate compass of quality and design in timepieces. Over a century of accomplishment and innovation by Rolex watch designs include chronometer certification, self-winding mechanisms, automatic time calibration and quartz movement. A name synonymous with luxury and precision, Rolex is the largest single luxury watch brand and among the 100 most valuable global brands.

Rolex Deep Sea

Founded in 1905, “Wilsdorf and Davis” began manufacturing and distributing wristwatches to jewelers in surrounding areas of London. Hans Wilsdorf and brother-in-law, Alfred Davis officially changed the trademark to “Rolex” in 1908 and opened an office in Switzerland. Rolex received the first ever Official Chronometer Certification to be awarded to a wristwatch just two years later. Becoming the first in 1910, Rolex remains the record holder today for most certified chronometer movements in wristwatches.

Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis continued breaking records with the exceptional precision of Rolex wristwatches, awarded with a Class “A” precision certificate in 1914 from The Kew Observatory in Great Britain. The flawless designs of remarkable engineering are seen as clearly today as they had been recognized on those infamous early decades of the 20th century. Rolex wristwatches are certainly standing the test of time, with continued innovation and impeccable quality.

A previously-owned Rolex watch has been revered and suggested as one of the wisest investment choices in both England and America. With retail prices for brand new models rising, there has been an increased popularity and availability of previously-owned Rolex watches. Rolex watches, particularly GMT-Master, Daytona and Submariner models have proven to maintain, and often rise in value over time.

Rolex Wristwatch

As consumers, we may never see a more fitting time to invest in a classic timepiece by Rolex. With jewelry retailers offering previously-owned Rolex watches with CW21 certification at remarkably affordable rates, it is undoubtedly time (no pun intended) to invest in a previously-owned luxury Rolex watch. The time to invest in a Rolex is at an all time high for luxury previously owned models. Raymond Lee Jewelers prides itself in being an industry leader in luxury pre-owned watches.  Located in the heart of Boca Raton, Florida, Raymond Lee Jewelers can offer the best value high end watches on the web.

Whether purchased for a loved one (this includes you), or for future use as a family keepsake, there has never been a better time to invest in a previously-owned Rolex wristwatch. As the ultimate emblem of innovation, accomplishment and cultural heritage, a previously-owned Rolex watch is not only a wise investment, but a sentimental and symbolic one as well.

Bedat & Co. No 8 Limited Edition Watch- Watch Repair

Watch Repair

Watch Repair

Earlier today I wrote an article describing the growing trend towards more classic and slimmed down watches. In the past we have written countless articles on larger and thick cased timepieces, today instead I wanted to shine a light on a magnificent midsized watch. Bedat & Company have  released a limited edition watch called the No. 8 model number878.410.313.

This is truly a beautiful watch it has an 18 carat rose gold case, a unique black sunburst patterned dial, and rose gold markers. Like many classic midsized timepieces the dial has only a few features; there is the name of the brand on top with the, “Geneve” underneath it. The dial also has a seconds sub dial with the words, “limited edition” in the middle. My favorite feature of this wristwatch is the hand-woven alligator strap which you rarely see anymore and makes this watch really stand out.

Bedat & Company is a relative newcomer on the Swiss watch market that specializes in feminine luxury timepieces. Bedat & Co. is well known for mixing a contemporary modern look with a traditional art deco spirit. Many of their watches are crafted from stainless steel and feature diamonds set in the bezel. Founded in 1996 by Simone Bédat and her son Christian Bédat, Bedat & Co. has had a roller coaster story of success. Watch Repair.

Simone Bedat started her career at Lang SA a watch case manufacture in Switzerland; it is here that she gathered the majority of her expertise and experience that would eventually lead her to open her own company. Simone Bedat was head clerk at the age of 18 and worked for Lang SA for ten years until she moved on to Camy Watch Company in Geneva.

While working for Camy Simone Bedat worked closely with fellow entrepreneur Raymond Weil, they eventually both left Camy to create Raymond Weil watches in 1975. In 1996 Ms. Bedat decided it was her time to branch off on her own and created Bedat & Co. with her son, Christian. Their first collection featured classic timepieces that were made with Swiss precision and parts.

The models N°3, N°7.Ref. 304 and Ref. 314 were big hits and solidified Bedat & Co. place in the Swiss watch market. They only grew over the next four years attracting the attention of Gucci who acquired 85% of the business in 2000. Today Bedat & Co. is owned by a Malaysian based company called LuxuryConcepts Timepieces and continues to release beautiful watches with Swiss parts at a reasonable price.

George Clooney’s Watch in The American: Watch Sell

Watch Sell

Watch Sell

Last week when I was watching George Clooney‘s latest movie, The American, I was struck at how beautifully this movie was shot. Throughout this suspenseful thriller, the viewer is treated to amazing panoramic wide shots of George Clooney driving down twisted mountain side roads that stretch deep into the Italian countryside. The director really went out his way to have the cinematography tell the story as much as possible; there are many moments in the movie where there is no talking or soundtrack playing, there is only the great camera work and the real world silence we all experience everyday. Watch Sell.

It is in these silent moments that this movie truly shines. In one scene we see George Clooney quietly crafting a custom rifle in his workshop with the only noise coming from his tools and the beating of metal. I was so focused on this scene that I happened to notice the watch that was on Clooney was wearing. With the excellent camera work it was easy to identify that the watch was a Omega Speedmaster Professional with black leather strap most likely model number 3870.50.31.

It is no surprise that Clooney is wearing an Omega as he is one of their brand ambassadors and has worn an Omega brand watch in other recent movies. The Speedmaster Professional with the black leather strap has an amazing classic look. It features a powerful chronograph, which offers 12-hour, 30 minute and 1/10 second subdials. Distinctively masculine in design, it features a large, round silver stainless steel watch case with a tachymeter bezel in black with silver markings, and it measures 39.8mm wide.
