Paul Newman, a Rolex Daytona Cosmograph and The Men’s Room

Watches We Love – Tag Heuer for Men and Women

Tag HeuersThere are certain watches that we love that I have always wanted to sell.  Watches that are high quality, mid-luxury and great prices. The Tag Heuer is one of these watches. This is a watch that I have been on the look out to buy used for some time, but the used market for the Tag is not that large, so I started to investigate the new Tag Heuer market.

It took some time to find the right resource, but one thing that I love to do is investigate to find the right deals, and luckily enough, I found the right deal to be able to bring brand new Tag Heuers to Jonathan’s Fine Jewelers.  And, we have couldn’t wait to tear into those boxes and unwrap these watches and put them in the case, because these Tag’s are sick…in a good way! :) [Read more...]

Diamond Buyer Gift Guide – Hottest Holiday Watches for Her

Ladies WatchesThe holidays are here and we know our women love their diamonds, but sometimes we need to mix it up.  I know that my wife loves the gift of time, but let’s face it, I can’t give her the gift of time, because there are only so many hours in the day, but I can give her a watch so she can at least try to make some time for herself.

Watches are like a fine wine, as they age, some of them actually get better. I am a firm believer that buying a new watch is great if you can get your value out of it at a later date, but I also know that buying a new watch is generally not the smartest move.  I encourage all my customers to buy a used watch, and if you trust the source you are buying from and can get a warranty, then you are golden.

When you purchase a mid to high end brand, such as Rolex or Bertolucci, the models don’t change much year after year, so you are just as safe buying a used model as a new model, and you save lots of money by buying used that has been reconditioned and can last you a lifetime. [Read more...]

It’s Time to Break Up

WatchesI might have a touch of ADD and perhaps I can be accused of a wandering eye as well, but I do have an appreciation for beauty.  What can I say? It’s not that I get bored easily…okay; maybe I do get bored easily, but is that a crime?

What if I’m guilty of being one of those people who sees something I want and go after it, and when I realize it is better or sexier than what I have I have to break up with what I have. What choice do I have, and does that make me a bad guy? Maybe it just makes me a guy who knows when it is time to move on. After all, do you know when it it’s time to break up? [Read more...]
