Rolex is going up in price very soon!

Every year without fail two things happen, Tax Time and Rolex has a price increase. It amazes me because it’s like clock work. It doesn’t matter if there is a recession or not, or people can’t fill up at the pump, Rolex goes up in price on a yearly basis.

For those of you looking to purchase a Rolex Watch, I suggest you do so now because the word on the street is that the price increase will take place in the next two weeks by June 15, 2012. This increase usually affects the entire Rolex product line across the board. If your unsure where to buy your next Rolex timepiece, then look no further as I will be happy to point you in the right direction.

The Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra Thin has always been a favorite of mine. It is quite possibly the finest ultra thin timepiece in the world and is the standard that all other watch manufactures want to emulate.

So it was very fitting then for long time friend of the brand and internationally renowned actor, Clive Owen who was spotted wearing the new Jaeger-LeCoultra Master Ultra Thin Tourbillion in Pink Gold at the premier of his new film “Hemingway & Gellhorn” co starring Nicole Kidman. According to the actor, “Jaeger-LeCoultre watches is everything you want a high quality watch to be – all the hours of workmanship make this a beautiful and very elegant watch to wear and it also looks great.”

As I have always said in the past and I still stick to my guns on this, it’s very important with whom you align yourself with as a watch brand and in life in general. Clive Owen does a remarkable job representing Jaeger-Lecoultre with worldly class and distinction by being a remarkable actor, humanitarian and sophisticated gentleman.

The Specs of the watch are as follows:

Jaeger-Lecoultre Master Ultra Thin

Ref#Q1322510

Case- measures an incredibly thin 11.3 millimetres,  40 mm,  pink gold

Functions- time and tourbillon

Movement-  Calibre 982 with a balance oscillating at 28,800 vibrations per hour.  Ultra-light grade 5 titanium carriage stem from decades of chronometric and technical research & development.

Retail Price- $72,000

The Panerai Las Vegas Boutique is officially open!

Yesterday was a great day for super cool watch brand Panerai. They officially opened their doors at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The boutique is any bit as bold yet modern, chic yet historic, incredibly visible yet intimate and small as all their other boutiques around the world.

I remember when the first boutique opened in Beverly Hills, it was astonishing that such a small brand with big ass balls made such a giant move in carving themselves in Beverly Hills. Now we leap 7 years ahead with the Las Vegas Boutique being their seventh boutique in the US, it’s remarkable what this brand has accomplished growing at such a rapid rate, even with the downturn of the economy with opening one boutique a year for the last 7 years.

Panerai as you may or may not know is owned by the Richemont group which owns the best luxury watch brands in the world like Cartier, IWC, A Lange & Sohne , Piaget and Baume and Mercier to name a few. I predicted years ago that these brands would all have vertical integration by opening their own doors to control distribution, pricing and promote brand awareness. Panerai has been a  true visionary at the forefront as all the other brands are following suit. It amazes me how in this time they have maintained their relevancy, history, collectibility and exclusivity all at the same time.

Their is finally a place in Las Vegas where Panerai enthusiasts, collectors and fans can go and get the entire Panerai experience.
