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.

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.”

Nothing says style like, Cartier

As seen here, Camilla Belle is shopping in Beverly Hills at her favorite shop, Cartier of course and with her timeless beauty next to the sign makes her all the more beautiful and classy!  Since she comes with a background of fashion, it makes sense!  And it is because of mom’s Latin fashion expertise, I can’t wait to see her next move, “Prada to Nada”.

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.

Charlie Sheen: Adonis DNA and Patek Philippe Devotion

A Looney Love Story

Image Courtesy of: http://www.watchmatchmaker.com/

Charlie Sheen not only harnessed Tiger Blood and Adonis DNA, but also a potentially dangerous devotion to watchmaker, Patek Philippe. The high-profile fan, and expert of sorts in regard to the various wristwatch models of Patek Philippe, is arguably a bit too attached to these spectacular creations.  Not too long ago, you may remember, Sheen completely dismantled his hotel room at the Plaza. Charlie was a man on a mission, and hunted for his ‘Patek 5970’ even after the hotel room destruction. 

Some may consider his “Crazy Torpedo of Truth” a symbol of a man who’s gone mad. However, Sheen’s high quality taste in regard to timepieces seems to have remained fully intact.  In the picture above, we see Charlie wearing one of his beloved Patek Philippe watches, a 5131, as he carefully balances a cigarette and stuffed tiger in the other hand. 

What a classic capture this image is.  Sporting one of the most exquisite watchmakers in history on one wrist, and two of his classic bad-boy fixations in the other. In a way, it adds to my jovial adoration of Charlie Sheen.  Sure, he may believe that he is ‘above a normal human’, with elements of tiger blood, Adonis DNA and a Warlock status, but the man still knows great watches!  

Charliee Sheen: A Twitpic of his beloved 'Patek Philippe'

This was one of the first ‘tweets’ made by Mr. Charlie Sheen. He titled the infamous ‘twitpic‘, ‘The only watch that keeps Warlock time‘.

There still remains a controversy over exactly what vintage model Patek it is that ‘keeps Warlock time’

Research leaves two possible suspects as to exactly which rare vintage model Patek Philippe is being worn by Sheen in the photograph.

#1: Patek Philippe Reference 2497

patekwatch.blogspot.com

#2: Patek Philippe Reference 2438/1

Patek Philippe 2438/1

The extremely uncommon, 37mm broad wristwatch was produced in small amounts, from 1952 into the early ’60s. Not just may be the fairly watch very uncommon, but it’s really useful. During a Christie’s public sale last year, this model was offered in close range to $707,612. This model possesses the Patek Philippe yearly diary “triple date” design motion, with 30 day indications. The indications have both a moon phase, in addition to the day, beneath them.

The variations between the 2497 model Patek and the 2438/1 are incredibly minor, leaving both as strong possible matches. 

If anyone can tell me precisely which model Sheen is wearing in his ‘twitpic’…

I’ll give you 10% off any Patek Philippe timepiece purchase!

Have a Good One!

Raymond Lee Jewelers: Rothstein Auction a Go-Go! (…and a pretty grey logo.)

Rothstein Auction A Go-Go

Lee Josephson, Raymond Lee Jewelers VP, Offers a Philosophical Perspective on the Rothstein Auction during an interview with WPTV News, Channel 7:

 Reporter Paul Brinkmann has been continuously publishing updates, following today’s

Scott Rothstein auction action. Once again, South Florida Business Report features Raymond Lee Jewelers. 

Right on, Mr. Brinkmann!

Lee Josephson of Raymond Lee Jewelers in Boca Raton bids on a Patek Philippe yellow gold watch, but dropped out after a while.   “Lee Josephson of Raymond Lee Jewelers in Boca Raton bids on a Patek Philippe yellow gold watch, but dropped out after a while.”

Ultimately, the auction was a great experience and lots of excitement surrounding the event certainly stirred things up as lines began to form of South Florida jewelry professionals, collectors and victims of Scott Rothstein’s massive ponzi scheme looking for vengeance, in any form.

A variety of interpretations surrounding the auction have published since this morning. Certain sources are elaborating on the fact that so many pieces were paid above retail value for. Other views within the local press maintained a collectors perspective, pointing out that some items can become collectibles because of the stories tied to them… This, I tend to agree with, even if the story is not all that pretty.

Rothstein Auction Acquired Piaget Watch

Although Josephson won less bids than he hoped, he says there’s a serious lesson here.

“It shows how ridiculous someone is when money is no object. I’m blown away by how many watches Rothstein owned, he has more than most stores have in stock. I hope the people who got burned are reimbursed,” says Josephson

WPTV Channel 5  reported on the days events at the

Rothstein ‘ponzi auction’,

as well as the

And…

Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein may be serving time, but his white gold Piaget watch sold for $77,500 on Wednesday.

Think that’s a lot? Around 1 p.m., a new auction high was set on a limited edition Concord watch for $100,000. There was also a white gold Franck Muller watch that fetched $47,500 and a Patek Phillippe watch that went for $61,000.
