Watches Of Switzerland @ The Wynn Las Vegas Inside Look

Watches Of Switzerland @ The Wynn Las Vegas Inside Look Watch Stores

Watches of Switzerland – a major watch and jewelry retailer group in the UK – has been making a splash in the United States thanks to their latest new store openings in New York City and Las Vegas at the Wynn. Watches of Switzerland CEO Brian Duffy is keen to bring the successful strategy of connecting with clients in the United Kingdom to America. In this post, aBlogtoWatch offers a hands-on look at the scenery and timepieces available at the accommodating Watches of Switzerland boutique now open in Las Vegas.

In addition to operating the Watches of Switzerland store at the Wynn, the same talented team manages the stand-alone Rolex, Omega, and Breitling boutiques also located in the popular high-end Las Vegas hotel and resort landmark. The Omega and Breitling stores at the Wynn are brand new – including Breitling’s handsome new retail concept which offers a fresh type of space to purchase fine timepieces outside of the typical jewelry store environment.

When asked what most watch stores in America are missing, Watches of Switzerland CEO Brian Duffy explains “that wow factor.” According to Mr. Duffy, watch enthusiasts – especially in places such as Las Vegas – want to be awed. This begins at the retail level when simply walking by. Mr. Duffy explains that wowing consumers is not only about a pleasant and inviting space but also products. Consumers come for the product and stay for the service – which seems to be the cornerstone philosophy behind what Watches of Switzerland has been doing right in its home UK market for so long.

Pushy, primarily sales-focused employees are what Watches of Switzerland seeks to avoid in populating their store staffs. Instead, associates who can connect and relate to watch collectors and consumers with a range of backgrounds and interests are who Watches of Switzerland want anyone who visit their locations to interact with. This is especially challenging to do in a city like Las Vegas where the vast majority of clients are not local residents. Connecting with Las Vegas watch lovers who visit Watches of Switzerland at the Wynn is about understanding the mood and needs of guests who are in Las Vegas both to celebrate accomplishments as well as indulge.

Watches of Switzerland wants to encourage conversations and sharing with their guests – understanding that the decision to purchase a high-end timepiece is typically not an impulse. The best conversations begin with an impressive timepiece, which is why Watches of Switzerland at the Wynn has one of the most thoughtfully curated selections of brands both from major luxury groups as well as noteworthy high-end independents.

In addition to popular favorites including Patek Philippe, Omega, Breguet, TAG Heuer, Panerai, Vacheron Constantin, Roger Dubuis, Girard-Perregaux, Blancpain, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Ulysse Nardin, Cartier, Hublot, Blancpain, and Breitling, Watches of Switzerland at the Wynn Las Vegas features collector-important names such as Bovet, Urwerk, Jacob & Co., and Franck Muller.

At the Breitling boutique located on the opposite side of the Wynn from Watches of Switzerland, Breitling brand-ambassador and celebrated record-setting NASA astronaut Scott Kelly (aBlogtoWatch interview here) was on-scene to admire the new retail space and updated Breitling Premier timepiece collection. Mr. Kelly most admires utility “tool” watches – especially due to his history of absolutely requiring a reliable timepiece in order to stay on mission (or alive). In Las Vegas enthusiasts can find tool watches with a history of professional usage complimented with impressive spectacle watches that feel at home in the Las Vegas atmosphere.

Diamonds and gaming complications are among the two types of watches you can sometimes only find in places like Las Vegas. Watches of Switzerland debuted a new “roulette” version of the Jacob & Co. Astronomia timepiece and showcased a Franck Muller timepiece with a working roulette game complication on the dial. Also showcased at Watches of Switzerland and their respective Wynn Las Vegas stores were impressive and uncommon Breguet and Omega timepieces which dazzle with creativity and craftsmanship.

    Ariel, you’re letting him put a watch on your right wrist, when you clearly wear your watch on the left.
    But seriously, it really is a great store with nice staff. I’m back in Vegas I think in late Jan/early Feb, seeing these images just makes me want to try on that torpedo again… ?

      When someone offers to put a watch on my wrist I simply can’t turn down that level of service 🙂

      • SuperStrapper

        Who could!

    I’ve heard that Las Vegas is a bit of a dump, but I’ve never been.
    The only thing that matters is sales. Period.

    • Ariel Adams

      Las Vegas has its nicer and less-nice places for sure. The Wynn and other hotels like it are really classy high-end establishments which are visually interesting, inviting, and very well done. Note that the people running Watches of Switzerland are Scottish like you – and they had good things to say about it. So if you happen to make it out to Las Vegas to the Wynn, I’m sure you’ll love it.

      • Raymond Wilkie

        It’s on my bucket list for sure.

    • SuperStrapper

      Vegas really does have the whole spectrum covered. The airport is like a 5 minute drive from the strip, a d in that time you travel from ghost town dump to everything youve ever seen in an ad for glitztly Las Vegas.
      Book a hotel like Wynn, Cosmo, or Aria. Avoid properties like the Lux, Excalibur, and Hooters. Just because it might be across the street doesnt mean it belongs in the same neighborhood.
      That said, everyone should experience the $22/night Hooters experience of simply trying to defeat Vegas (wont happen, but you have to try). Coming from Scotland, you wont want to fly all that way for just a few nights, so book things to do in the areas adjacent to the city (hoover dam, etc. Also, go to boulder and shoot a rocket launched and fully automatic .50 cal) because no one visiting Las Vegas should be doing Las Vegas for more than 3 nights.

    Oh sure, the places I would want to visit on my road trip in the USA is extensive but for just a day on my way to LA I just want to see how tacky the whole place is.

    A watch fit to wear in the Blackpool of America.

    I was there opening day. Very nice store and ambiance. I bought a Rolex for my wife at the Wynn the next day. It is to be a Xmas present.

    I’m a big fan of Las Vegas, but it should be taken in small doses.
    Positives include gourmet restaurants, several high end watch stores within walking distance. Locations in Wynn, as mentioned, Caesar ‘s Forum shoppes, Bellagio, and Fashion Center Mall. Other attractions are Hoover dam, Mt. Charleston,, Lake Mead, Ethel M chocolates and cactus garden as well as neon sign museum.

    Stay in the best hotel you can afford, preferably in the Venetian or Bellagio area. Several nice hotels in that part of the Strip.

    Eat at Bouchon Bistro at the Venetian for some really terrific food.
