Thread: Watch shopping in Vegas?

  1. #1

    Watch shopping in Vegas?

    I'm fortunate to be handling an athlete at the Olympia again this year in Vegas (he took second in the 242lb class when we went last year). It's a fast in and out, but I'll have a little bit of time for entertainment. Any suggestions for watch shopping? I'm not in the market for anything, but would like to window shop.

    Well there's tons of window shopping in Vegas. From what I remember there's tons of Boutiques all around the hotels. Check out Watches Of Switzerland. I've never been to this location but I heard good things.

    If you keep pitching 'em up like that, I'm gonna start swinging.

    I've never been, so no help I'm afraid; but, I'd imagine Vegas is a spendthrifts paradise with every boutique going for drooling purposes.

    Most of the big hotels/casinos have some entertaining stuff. It's been a while since I've been there but I remember a couple of shops in the Venetian, in particular, that had some more unusual brands.

    It's a term we use when we organize and coach a lifter at a competition. I helped him take his opening lift earlier today. He's ready.

    Thanks. Wasn't sure if there were any "don't miss this one" while I was in town. I'll check those out and browse some of the casinos when we get away from the Olympia.

    Tons of watch shops in Vegas... you'll be like a kid in a candy store.

    Near the canal shops in between the Venetian and the Palazzo (on the ground floor) are several - Breguet, A Longe, Cartier, IWL, VC all in the same area, then upstairs is a place that has some Omega, Glashutte, Grand Seiko, Zenith and others...

    That's just one hotel...

    I visited a Patek boutique, Rolex, and AP... AP wasn't worth it...they had like three watches and were snooty. I can't remember exactly where, but I want to say they were in Aria if I recall.
