Is your watch ready to
TAKE THE PLUNGE

Hamilton Jewelers’ Rules of Thumb: Watches and Water Resistance Rules 

So you took the extra Spin and Pilates classes to get bikini ready, but have you checked your wrist?  Now that Summer has arrived, you have a host of wonderful outdoor activities — most of which involve water. Before you dive in, Hamilton Jewelers wants to make sure the watch on your wrist is ready to take the plunge with you.

If the watch you are wearing says it is water resistant, it will typically have the depth to which it can be worn. In order  to rate the depth to which it can be submerged — it has to undergo rigorous pressure tests. If your watch doesn’t say water resistant, it isn’t.   

It’s important to note that watch brands use a number of methods to mark their watches for water resistance, including feet, meters, Bars and ATM (atmospheres). To simplify these terms, we offer some basic breakdowns:

1 Meter = 3 feet rounded (actual is 3.28 feet)

1 Bar = 33 feet rounded (actual is 33.455 feet)

1 ATM = 1 Bar or 33 feet rounded

You can find the markings denoting the water resistance of the watch either on the dial or on the back of the case.  Generally, a good rule of thumb is if a watch isn’t water resistant to at least 50 or 100 feet it shouldn’t go in a pool. For instance, if a watch is water resistant to 30 feet, it may not have water-tight gaskets or screw-in crowns, and water could seep inside when the watch is exposed to pressure or direct flow.

Founded in New Jersey in 1912, Hamilton has been offering clients the finest quality, value, and design for over 100 years. They are known for carrying iconic timepieces including vintage and represent a variety brands including Panerai, Rolex, Patek Philippe, Breitling, Cartier, Tag Heuer, Chanel and more.

Bespoke Wedding in Jose Ignacio, Uruguay
SOPHIE LLOYD’S British touch

By Sophie Lloyd

One of my favorite things about being a personal shopper is helping people find the perfect outfit for that special occasion– weddings in particular.  It’s rewarding to have such an instrumental role in the happy couple’s day!  Earlier this year, I was asked by two of my good friends Hugh MacDermott and Paulo Jiménez Verón of MacDermott’s Argentina (luxury adventure travel company based in Buenos Aires) to help them shop for outfits for their destination wedding in the idyllic beach resort of Jose Ignacio in Uruguay.

The wedding ceremony took place on the beach, followed by a party at a nearby estancia in the middle of March (end of summer in the southern hemisphere).   With the help of my local Argentine menswear designer contacts in Buenos Aires, we outfitted Hugh and Paulo with some fun, stylish  pieces to fit the relaxed, laid back, boho-chic vibe. Head-wear being a must, Hugh and Paolo’s only request was for the guests to wear fresh flower crowns.We selected a light color palette of pastel pinks, blues, creams and the obvious white that would work well in the heat and perfectly offset their colorful flower crowns.

Paulo likes his prints so we picked out a blue and white printed fitted shirt from Buenos Aires shirt designer Silvio Sierra. And if there’s ever an occasion for a man to wear pink, it’s a wedding, so we chose a fitted solid pink shirt for Hugh and some salmon pink chinos for Paulo from chic Buenos Aires menswear boutique Mis Intimos Amigos (M.I.A.).  A stone-coloured linen blazer for Hugh and a crisp white blazer for Paulo from Argentine hipster menswear label Felix.

I was lucky enough to attend the wedding and what a beautiful, heart-warming day it was. Hugh and Paolo are known for the fabulous bespoke holidays and honeymoons they organize for the most discerning travelers, so the affair which lasted all night, ran like clockwork  The highlight of the wedding party, was witnessing the two beaux making their grand entrance to the party on horseback to the disco classic ‘I feel love’ by Donna Summer’.

If you’re planning a trip to Buenos Aires, here are my top five picks for men’s shopping in Buenos Aires:

  1.     Apuesto –  handmade leather shoes – El Salvador 5772, Palermo Hollywood
  2.     Maidana Sombreros – men’s handmade hats – Avenida Rivadavia 1923, Congreso
  3.     Dinamarca – urban menswear label – Arevalo 1758, Palermo Hollywood
  4.     Silvio Sierra – handmade fitted shirts – Alvarez Thomas 637, timbre 2 (by appointment), Colegiales
  5.     La Restinga – luxury menswear and accessories fashion house – Niceto Vega 5181, Palermo Soho (by appointment)

Shopping tip: Argentina is a closed economy so there is a thriving local design scene, which makes it a great city for shopping since you’re unlikely to find anyone else with the same thing back home. And, due to high inflation rates and rising overheads, some of the best shopping can be found behind closed doors as many emerging designers and brands prefer to sell their collections out of private studio spaces or from their apartments on an appointment-only basis, which is a more personal, exclusive and fun way of shopping. Bring plenty of cash for shopping in pesos and/or USD as some places will give you a 10% discount if paying in cash.

 

To discover some of these secret shopping spots and Buenos Aires’ other shopping treasures, you can book a bespoke shopping trip with personal shopper Sophie of Shop Hop BA www.shop-buenosaires.com / sophie@shop-buenosaires.com

And once you are all kitted out and looking for an adventure in Argentina write to Hugh & Paulo of MacDermott’s Argentina www.macdermottsargentina.com / info@macdermottsargentina.com

Hamilton Jewelers Creates
Piper’s Angels Collection

Piper’s Angels hand engraved charm and customized bracelet unveiled at Crossing for a Cure Launch Party

Hamilton Jewelers’ commitment to philanthropic efforts in Palm Beach County resulted in the creation of a Piper’s Angels Collection to support the local Cystic Fibrosis organization–Piper’s Angels Foundation.   Sterling silver and gold versions of the custom designed bracelet and hand engraved charms were unveiled during the Palm Beach Launch Party for Crossing for a Cure.

Piper’s Wings and Halo

The jam packed event took place at Meat Market Palm Beach May 17th, thirty days prior to the actual crossing.  Over 100 supporters including several brave paddle boarders attended the send off celebration.  In addition to Hamilton Jewelers, sponsors include Chris McDermott and McCloskey Financial Group, Tito’s Vodka, Chasin A Dream Photography and Spark PR Group.  (see photos)

The highlight of the evening was when Sarah Mlostek, manager of Hamilton Jewelers Worth Avenue, presented Piper with her very own 14kt gold bracelet and charm, with the logo’s recognizable wings and halo.

“The energy in the room was electric, and to have such as special a moment with Piper, to bring her front and center to recognize her for the strength and courage she has, was a memory we will always cherish.  A huge thank you to Hamilton Jewelers for making it happen,” said Travis Suit.

 

Twenty percent of all proceeds are donated to Piper’s Angels Foundation.  Piper’s Angels Foundation bracelets can be purchased online at www.hamiltonjewelers.com/piper  or stop by Hamilton Jewelers located at 215 Worth Avenue or at The Gardens Mall to see samples of bracelets and charms and place your order for one of these custom pieces while supporting a very worthwhile cause.  Shipping is complimentary.
