Boardwalk Empire Nucky ThompsonBy Martin Green for Longitude – Christies Watch Blog

Watch auctions are basically a way of connecting top of the line watches with collectors and connoisseurs who appreciate them. A watch needs to suit you, especially when you are an actor playing a particular role. That’s why in the past we have matched “Suit’s” Mike Ross and gentleman K. Cooper Ray with a watch suited for them.

Now it is time to do this once again; this time for Steve Buscemi and his alter-ego Nucky Thompson. Steve Buscemi is not your typical actor. No broad shoulders, large muscles or a smile that seems to come straight out of a toothpaste commercial. No, Buscemi is more your everyday guy, with an extraordinary talent for character acting.

To see what Martin suggests Nucky wears on his wrist… Trust me it’s definately worth a read the full article can be found at Longitude – Christies Watch Blog

In Martin’s own words “I’m convinced that his taste for the finer things in life would definitely make him recognize and appreciate the extraordinary craftsmanship of the Vacheron. A character actor needs a character watch! I call that a double match!”

Watch Matchmaker Series – Brooke Lewis and the Ulysse Nardin

Watch Matchmaker: Actress and Life Coach Brooke Lewis and the Ulysse Nardin Lady Diver Starry Night

By Meehna Goldsmith

In Meehna’s WatchMatchmaker series as published on Longitude – Christies Watch Blog , Meehna and her contributors have restyled fashion and manners king K. Cooper Ray along with Mike Ross from the hit TV show Suits. This time Meehna has got some advice for Brooke Lewis.

Brooke is a talented actress and producer. She’s won many awards for acting including, Excellence in Film for Sprinkles, Scream Queen of the Month on and the Silver Lei Award for Ms. Vampy’s Tween Tawk, Teen Tawk & In Between Tawk, my personal fav.  I love her saucy and straightforward vampire, providing valuable insight and advice to young girls in a supportive environment. Without the teeth and cape, she also runs a successful business as a sought after life coach. A very smart cookie, this adorable and fiery brunette possesses the acceleration of a souped up Ferrari. You don’t want to get in her way when she wants to get something done.

Mike Ross From “Suits” gets a Watch Matchmaker Makeover

I suggested a watch makeover for Mr. Manners K. Cooper Ray, an IWC Portofino 8 Days, which he thought fit him to a T. Now it’s time for me to address a watch issue on the TV series “Suits”. In the show on AMC, attorney Harvey Specter is the best closer in the business. Attractive, knowledgeable and a creative problem solver, he’s got a sharp mind as well as smooth social moves—and he hates to lose. On his team is young protégé Mike, who he’s grooming to move up the ranks. The fact that Mike, an exceptional talent, doesn’t actually have a law degree is another story. Harvey realizes Mike has got the chops, but he has a long way to go. Particularly in watch department.

Harvey got Mike fitted in a tailored suit and Italian shoes but he forgot the watch. Mike’s got to ditch that plastic number that he probably bought at the drugstore. It’s tacky. Especially for an associate at the prestigious firm Pearson Hardman. You don’t want to scare off a client with an off-the-rack polyester leisure suit and garage sale shoes. The wrong watch has the same effect. It doesn’t exude confidence and sophistication. And without a decent watch, Mike’s look just isn’t complete.

K. Cooper Ray Gets a Watch Matchmaker Makeover

A new feature we will be undertaking on is the Watch Matchmaker Series, where Meehna selects a celebrity and connects the dots to find the right timepiece for the star. This series will be written by Meehna and her contributors over at Longitude – Christies Watch Blog.

In the first in the Watch Matchmaker Series we will be focusing on K.Cooper Ray of , Enjoy…

Cooper Ray Watch matchmakerK. Cooper Ray is first and foremost a gentleman. In a world of lions he is the lion tamer carrying his whip through example and his excellent site Social Primer. Though a mainstay on the New York and Los Angeles social scene, he never allows the spotlight to go to his head, as this would count as bad behavior.

As K. Cooper demonstrates, manners aren’t just in the way one acts but also how one dresses. Showing up to any function but a house cleaning party in a torn shirt and flip flops is verboten. After all, a well-turned out man (not classy, as K. Cooper abhors this word) stands himself in good stead and is ready to handle any situation. So what’s a man to do if he’s lost in the forest of clothing choices? Well, K. Cooper will lead him out with advice and even offer up some clothing. He has a reversible bow tie collection at Brooks Brothers. Yes, bow ties are cool. K. Cooper brings a new and modern pizazz to the neck gear with his contrasting patterns and colors.

The Issue of Provenance: How Much Would You Pay for Lord Lucan’s Watch?

Lord Lucan, infamous for (probably) injuring his wife and killing his children’s babysitter by bludgeoning her to death, went underground 38 years ago. He was believed to have gone into hiding in South Africa after the event but nobody could find him. It’s been speculated billionaire Jimmy Goldsmith (no relation to me) helped Lucan flee. A watch may prove the Lord’s undoing. Antiques dealer Cedrick Lincoln acquired a watch on a black strap he believes belonged to Lucan from another dealer in Birmingham for  £5,000 in a deal that included a Rolex Prince.

The watch, according to the dealer, came from a township in South Africa. Inscribed on the back of the unbranded Swiss watch is: ‘Presented to Lord “Lucky’ Lucan” The Old Fossil’ by his friends at the Clermont Club Mayfair December 1967′. Lincoln did some research of his own and found pictures of Lucan wearing what could be this very watch. Bolstering the claim is a woman who used to work for Lucan’s friend John Aspinall. She said she accompanied his children on flights to South Africa so Lucan could watch them at a safe distance.

Lincoln has now decided to put the watch up for auction. So how can this rather insignificant watch become a prospective coveted piece? Continue reading
