Lee Josephson, Raymond Lee Jewelers VP, Offers a Philosophical Perspective on the Rothstein Auction during an interview with WPTV News, Channel 7:
Reporter Paul Brinkmann has been continuously publishing updates, following today’s
Scott Rothstein auction action. Once again, South Florida Business Report features Raymond Lee Jewelers.
Right on, Mr. Brinkmann!
Ultimately, the auction was a great experience and lots of excitement surrounding the event certainly stirred things up as lines began to form of South Florida jewelry professionals, collectors and victims of Scott Rothstein’s massive ponzi scheme looking for vengeance, in any form.
A variety of interpretations surrounding the auction have published since this morning. Certain sources are elaborating on the fact that so many pieces were paid above retail value for. Other views within the local press maintained a collectors perspective, pointing out that some items can become collectibles because of the stories tied to them… This, I tend to agree with, even if the story is not all that pretty.

Lee Josephson, Vice President of Raymond Lee Jewelers, said he was surprised that some items were going for far over estimated retail prices, such as a Panerai watch that went for almost $12,000 over retail. But he snagged a Piaget watch for $17,000 that he said had a retail price of nearly $45,000. -Paul Brinkmann
