Aniston’s Rolex Outs Her Dating Status

You can learn a lot about an individual based on the watch he or she wears.  We’ve blogged about that before.

For example, Ke$ha wears a colorful, loud watch.  Sting wears a classic, conservative watch. Makes sense, right?  Those watches seem to reflect their personalities.

But can you learn about someone’s dating life based on the watch that they wear?  Star magazine thinks so.  Apparently Jennifer Aniston has recently been seen wearing a gold Rolex watch (seen below) that was given to her by John Mayer.

Well now Star wants to start rumors that they’re back together.

Really?  It’s a gold Rolex watch – who wouldn’t want to wear it?  I’m sure that I have a few presents from ex-girlfriends that I still use or wear.  We’re not back together.  Trust me.

Dwyane Wade Rocks an Audemars Piguet

Looks like Dwyane Wade is throwing his hat into the ring to be considered for the eRelyx spokesperson position.  I’m sure that he’s been reading our blog and knows that Jennifer Aniston has been slow to get back to us.  He’s no dummy – he sees an opportunity and he’s quick to pounce.

DWade has a strong resume.  He’s stylish and wears great watches.  Check him out at the 2010 Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge in Bridgehampton, NY over the weekend.

In the photo, he’s wearing a great Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore.  If you’re an avid reader, you know that Audemars Piguet is hot with the celebrities these days.  That usually translates into accelerating revenues.

LL Cool J Wins Best Dressed at Emmy Awards

After every award show dozens of television programs, blogs, and magazines discuss the best and worst dressed stars at the event.  Well this year LL Cool J was, without a doubt, the best dressed individual at the Emmys. Don’t believe me?  Check out the photos from last night’s event.

Check out that Audemars Piguet watch!  Brrrrrrrrr.  LL Cool J?  More like LL Cold J (Hello?  Is this thing on?). That watch might “out-ice” Paris Hilton’s Chopard watch that she was seen wearing a few weeks ago! (Click here for more pictures of Paris)

If you’re interested in picking up the gents’ Audemars Piguet watch or the ladies’ Chopard Ice Cube, head to the following retailers….on second thought, just give me a call.  I’m looking for investors.

Oh – so I’m sure all of you are wondering who was the worst dressed individual at the Emmys.  Easy.  It was a tie – everyone who didn’t wear a watch.  Obviously.

Dwyane Wade Loves Watches

If you haven’t noticed, there’s been a lot of talk about LeBron James and Chris Bosh joining Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat during the NBA offseason.

I don’t know about you, but when I think about LeBron James I think about amazing luxury watches.  If you’re a loyal reader you know that I’ve blogged about LeBron and his watches few times – most recently during his 1-hour decision special on ESPN during which he wore an Audemars Piguet watch (AP must be shuffling LeBron some cash – he was just spotted on the cover of GQ wearing a pretty amazing AP watch).

This is pure speculation, but it’s quite possible that LeBron joined Dwyane Wade down in Miami so that they could talk about watches all day long.  Judging from a few recent photos, Wade is a huge watch lover as well.

Sure – the two will have a good shot at winning a ring in Miami – but we all know that watches are cooler than rings.  So, my logic sort of makes sense.

Trading Baseball Cards for Watches

I was a huge fan of baseball cards growing up.  A couple of times each month I would beg my parents to drive me to a baseball card show at a nearby hotel.  I remember asking them – “How far is Waltham?  How about Braintree?  What about Taunton?”  If the location of the card show was within 30 minutes, I was usually in luck.  My parents would drive me to the show and wait in the lobby as I wandered around trying to get rich buying, selling, and trading baseball cards.  Well, I never got rich.  However, I still have some great cards.

While I still like baseball cards, I would rather trade them for watches.  And you know what? That’s exactly what I’m going to try to do starting today.  Here are the cards I will attempt to turn into a watch.

Here’s how it will work:

1. I will send my cards to a professional grading company.  They will assign a condition to each card and seal it in a plastic case.  A “1″ means that the card is in terrible condition and worth very little.  A “10″ means that the card is perfect (or “mint”) and could be worth a lot of money.

2. When I get my graded cards back I will put them up for sale on ebay (the great thing about the grading company is that they grade the card and put it in a sealed case, so my buyers will know exactly what they’re getting – unfortunately the same isn’t always true for watches sold on ebay).

3. I will take the proceeds from the cards and buy the best watch possible.  I definitely won’t be able to afford an Audemars Piguet, Rolex, or Hublot.  If I get lucky, I might be able to afford an Oris or Tag Heuer.  Should be an interesting process!

I will keep you posted and things progress.  Maybe a couple of you will bid on the cards to help me out!

Childhood Memories

What is it about the past that is so comforting?  I always look back on my childhood and high school years fondly.  There are certainly a lot of great memories.  However, there were definitely some bumps in the road.  So why do I focus on the positives and generally think that the past was great?  Maybe I’m an optimist – mainly seeing the best of any situation. OR, maybe it’s because there is no uncertainty in the past.  It already happened – it can’t be changed.  The lack of uncertainty is comforting.

Think about it – what causes you the most stress today?  Is it the unknown?  It certainly is for me.  I started this business 6 months ago.  I took a leap of faith (an educated leap, but a leap nonetheless).  Things have gone well so far, but there is always a chance that things won’t go as planned.  In fact, I’m pretty certain that things won’t go as planned.  That’s a bit scary.  But that’s okay.  When I was younger, I wanted to be Ricky from Silver Spoons or Zack Morris from Saved By the Bell.  Guess what?  I don’t live in a huge mansion with an operable mini-train running through the living room.  And I’ve never had a cool hangout like The Max (although I am engaged to a prom queen ;) ).  But I’m in a good spot – not where I expected to be, but a good spot.

So what does this have to do with watches?  Not too much.  I just happened to be browsing through photos and saw a picture of Ricky Schroder at the Premiere of Going the Distance (with Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, and Christina Applegate).  He just so happens to be wearing a Tag Heuer Kirium watch.  Guess what!?!  I have two Tag Heuer watches.  Maybe we’re more similar than I thought!

Who knows what tomorrow holds.  I’m excited.  I know I will succeed – but it’s unclear about what I’ll experience on my journey.  Stay tuned.

Different Event, Same Gucci Watch

When you think about the busiest celebrities, Kim Kardashian and Ryan Secrest come to mind.  Am I right?

Well, I think we need to give some consideration to Holly Madison.  It seems like she’s at every meaningful event in Las Vegas.  Man, she must have stored up a lot of energy while dating Hef, huh?

And speaking of meaningful events, Holly and the cast of “Peep Show” recently hosted the Planet Hollywood Bikini Contest in Vegas.  Guess what Holly was wearing.  A bikini? WRONG!  Her Gucci watch, of course.  You should have known given the number of times that I’ve blogged about it.  My persistence will pay off one of these days – she’s going to either share the story of the watch or sell it on eRelyx!  (Holly – call us!)  I like her current watch, but I can also see her in a white ceramic Chanel J12.  Fitting, right?

Check out a couple of photos from the event.  Beautiful watch.  I can’t take my eyes off of it.

They Say This Cat Shaft Rocks a Franck Muller

Shut your mouth!  And check Shaft out at the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con this past weekend.

Is it true – could Shaft really be rocking a Franck Muller watch?  I wouldn’t be surprised – it’s a cool, classic watch.  But what do I know – he’s a complicated man…no one understands him but his woman.  John Shaft!

Rick Harrison Must See Some Great Watches

Does anyone else watch Pawn Stars on The History Channel?  I have to admit that I love to see the cool and unusual items that people bring into the Las Vegas pawn shop – especially the Rolex watches and Jaeger-LeCoultre clocks.

While I love seeing the unique treasures, I find the negotiation process quite painful.  It’s always the same game: an expert examines the item and shares an approximate value.  The star of the show and pawn shop owner, Rick Harrison, then asks the item’s owner how much he wants for it.  Of course the owner wants the full value as determined by the expert.  Rick offers 40-50% of the value.  They haggle and the owner usually walks away with 50-55% of the value of his item in cash.

My guess is that the majority of people watching the show often find themselves yelling, “Don’t take it you moron.  You’re getting ripped off!”  I know that’s what I yell.  However, I don’t know why the owners are selling their items.  Maybe they need money later that afternoon.  In that case, a pawn shop might be their best best.  However, if you’ve got more than 24 hours, there are better alternatives.

You can’t really blame Rick Harrison.  That’s the name of the game – buy low, sell high. Plus, I have a soft spot for Rick because he has no problem giving the items he buys, including the watches, a test run.  He’s often seen wearing Breitling and Rolex watches in his store.  In addition, he’s always wearing a great watch to red carpet events.  Check him out in the photo below from the Vegas Rocks! Magazine Awards wearing what appears to be a Breitling watch – maybe a quartz Colt Chronograph.

We’ve Got a Situation on Our Hands

For the cast of Jersey Shore, appearance is everything.  Most of them rely heavily on accessories like watches, hats, sunglasses, and necklaces to complete their “fresh” looks. Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is no exception.  He may be experiencing accessory overload, though.  Check him out during recent filming of his hit MTV show.

Remember our previous blog posting about a watch giving us insights into someone’s personality?  Well, how would you describe this watch?  Loud?  Obnoxious?  Exactly.  I don’t know exactly who makes this watch, but I’m pretty sure that Rolex, Cartier, Panerai, Audemar Piguet, and other manufacturers aren’t losing sleep because The Situation isn’t getting his GTL on wearing their brands.
