Day in the Life of a Miami Jeweler...Mr. CRM | CRM Life E32
He came from nothing and rose to the top in the cutthroat industry of luxury watches! Here's what a day in the life of Miami grey market jeweler Carlos Marcelin! Inspired by the memories of working in his dad's artisan jewelry shop as a kid in Havana, Cuba, Carlos Marcelin launched CRM Jewelers during late 2012. Many other jewelers and grey market dealers tried to discourage him with you'll-never-make-it dire warnings, but he never faltered from the pursuit of his passion, all in honor of his father Carlos Marcelin Sr. A Day In The Life of Carlos starts with the essential core of CRM Life, FAMILY! You'll see as the “women in his life,” the ones that Carlos refers to over and over in our little Miami reality series, come one by one to Carlos' bedside for a hug from daddy. From there, we move on to a boxing gym in Downtown Miami for a rigorous morning workout, before the real business day finally begins. You'll see clients come visit from afar, super high end watches all over the place, and plenty of buy/see watch deals (like the sale of the Patek Philippe Grand Complications Perpetual Calendar 5271P-001 that we bought from Adrian of Luxury Bazaar's at the IWJG Watch Show in Las Vegas not too long ago). Enjoy the episode. Let us know who's other day in the life you would like to see next!

Spent $827,000 But Got My Dream Watch - Best Experience at IWJG Show | CRM Life Episode 22
Spent $827,000 But Got My Dream Watch - Best Experience at IWJG Show And we're back on the grey market watch show scene! This time, to IWJG in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand! Our goal for this show was to spend at least $1,000,000 buying some sick pieces. Even though we came a little short ($827,000 was approximately what we spent), we had the chance to shake hands with other dealers and YouTubers in our space, including Adrian from Roman Sharf's Grey Market, who we bought some sick pieces from, including an insane Patek Philippe! Who would have thought that Carlos was going to find his dream watch at the show?! He was so inspired from the ordeal, that he's dying to go back to the show tour ASAP. Not only did we buy some nice watches on day 1 of the IWJG Show, but we also sold some pieces. Yes, we had to sell them a bit lower than to retail customers (like all dealers do), but it freed up some capital for us that allowed us to make more purchases and start new business relationships. Neel from Timepiece Trading (TPT) and his crew were also there, and we got a lot of footage with them, Avi from Avi & Co, who retold a story about his interesting experience with Carlos when CRM Jewelers was in its infancy, as well as many other gray market dealers and jewelers. In this episode of CRM Life, you'll get to see our trip to Vegas from Miami (even though we got there 2 days early due to a slight scheduling mishap), plenty of luxury brands at the show, like Richard Mille, Rolex, Patek Philippe, AP, and more, as well as some very nice footage of Sin City and lifestyle clips of the CRM team just being themselves!

The Perfect Watch for Tony Stark? - AP Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin
Try walking into an Audemars Piguet boutique and asking for one of these Royal Oak Tourbillon Extra-Thin models. Just try it and if you do, I wish you good luck! After we miraculously got our hands on three of these models, including two of the newer sunburst “Evolutive” dial versions (one in 18-cart pink gold and one in hammered white gold), we began our YouTube scavenger hunt for videos on these pieces. While we found some that featured the prior version with the watch, the one with the Petite Tapisserie (“checkerboard”) dial (like the stainless steel version reference 26510ST.OO.1220ST.01), there was nothing about the sunburst versions. That's when we knew that we had to make this review video. People just needed to witness the breathtaking and macro footage of these amazing, 8.95-mm-thin pieces of horology! The calibre 2924 movement of Audemars Piguet Extra-Thin tourbillons consists of 216 parts and 25 jewels and beats at 3 oscillations per second or 21,600 vibrations per hour. On the video, you'll get to witness it through the 6 o'clock opening housing the tourbillon on the dial side, as well as through a dazzling, clear caseback. There you'll also find the 70-hour power reserve indicator, which you'll see in action when we wind the watch near the middle of the video. Some critics might argue that because a tourbillon is not really more precise than well-constructed, mechanical watch, there is no point in buying a extravagant piece like the Extra-Thins on our video. And the reality is that they're technically right! Tourbillons just don't offer connoisseurs the same relative benefits they did in Louis Breguet's pocket watch days, over 200 years ago. But when you come to think about it, does that even matter? Not for these pieces in the slightest! Take the $250,000 white gold version of the watch (reference number 26520BC.GG.1224BC.01), the one that's limited to 5 pieces on the planet. They're so sold out that you may have to sacrifice your first born if you even want to get within 10 feet of one! And how about the rose gold Extra-Thin version of the tourbillon? They're sold out too. Yup, collectors don't seem to care that these tourbillons no longer serve a practical purpose in our high-tech world! 00:09 Rose Gold (ref. #26522OR.OO.1220OR.01) and White Gold Extra-Thin Tourbillons 01:25 Brief History of the Tourbillon (going back to 1801) 02:27 Calibre 2924 Movement & Power Reserve 03:17 The Regular Royal Oak vs the Tourbillon – Which is Better? 05:45 Price & Limited Availability of the Royal Oak Tourbillon What are your thoughts on the AP Tourbillon Extra-Thin?

How much Gold is ACTUALLY in a "Solid Gold" Rolex?
You'd be surprised how much gold a gold luxury watch contains! But don't take our word for it. See how we take a popular gold Rolex apart and find out its exact gold content by weight. The watch we used in this picture is the yellow gold Rolex Day-Date 40, reference number 228238, which is going for around $39,000 in the market as of the day this video was recorded (on 10/8/2020). Typically, the difference in price between similar stainless steel and gold models of a specific watch brand is significant. Some people think that the price difference is due to the value of gold, but is it really? I mean, the watch movement is not made out of gold, since both gold and stainless timepieces of the same model/brand have the same movements. What's different are the other parts, like the case, bracelet, etc. So we set out to take the watch apart and weigh those parts, then calculate their total value based on the market price of gold, which was around $1,900 a troy ounce (or $61 a gram) on the day we recorded the video footage. On the video, you'll see our preferred watchmaker, Yuri Lopez from Chrono Sky (Instagram link below), take the watch apart and set each gold piece on a calibrated scale. https://www.instagram.com/chronosky/ What interesting thing to mention is that during the last 20 year period, from 2000 to 2020, gold outperformed the US stock market (S&P 500) by a pretty wide margin, making an investment in gold during that same period worth 7 times the initial amount! On a side note, gold luxury watches, whether for men or women, are made in 18K gold, which is 75% gold by weight. On the video, we also compare the gold weight of the watch to a 24K chunk of gold. After you watch the video, comment how close was your guess...what percentage of the gold watch's price was due to the dollar value of its gold content? Happy Guessing!
