In the daz­zling world of diamond and spe­cialty watches, Wynn has emerged as one of the fore­most re­tail des­ti­na­tions for the finest time­pieces crafted to­day.

En­ter Wynn & Com­pany Watches and one of the first things you will see is a case full of unique time­pieces dis­played, right­fully, as art. The watches are se­lected specif­i­cally for this bou­tique and for guests who have come to ex­pect an ex­tra­or­di­nary and dis­tinc­tive shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence each time they travel here. You might be greeted, for in­stance, by a Piece Unique Amadeo 43 by Bovet 1822, with its de­tailed minia­ture horse—painted by hand un­der a mi­cro­scope—on a white moth­erof-pearl dial, whose sin­gu­lar de­but at Wynn & Com­pany Watches was timed to co­in­cide with the Chi­nese New Year. And then there’s the Kan­tharos from Christophe Claret, which fea­tures a mono-pusher chrono­graph and pro­duces a cathe­dral gong sound when started, stopped, or re­set. It’s no ac­ci­dent that the pedestaled glass cases with their care­fully cho­sen mix of one-of-a-kind time­pieces lend the store the rar­efied air of a gallery. “We cu­rate our col­lec­tion in an­tic­i­pa­tion of par­tic­u­lar guests,” ex­plains Bovet owner Pas­cal Raffy. “In Jan­uary, Bovet hand-se­lects which pieces will be first shown at Wynn.” With ded­i­cated mini­bou­tiques for Patek Philippe, Vacheron Con­stantin, Pan­erai, Breguet, and Blanc­pain, Wynn & Com­pany has be­come one of the world’s best-known des­ti­na­tions for watch afi­ciona­dos, thanks to its su­perb se­lec­tion of unique and lim­ited-edi­tion watches, fre­quently of­fered to Wynn’s clients be­fore those of any other US re­tailer. “Steve Wynn is not only a watch lover but also an as­tute busi­ness­man with a great sense of lux­ury. When he built Wynn, we were con­fi­dent that he would bring a top-notch clien­tele to Ve­gas,” says Larry Pet­tinelli, pres­i­dent of Patek Philippe USA, whose much-cov­eted time­pieces are show­cased in a Patek shop within the bou­tique. “Wynn has a great de­sire to give its loyal shop­pers a truly unique ex­pe­ri­ence while at the same time re­spect­ing the in­tegrity of the brands. For that rea­son, we try to de­liver spe­cial pieces that are very im­por­tant to us.” Wynn & Com­pany Watches car­ries nearly two dozen lux­ury watch brands.
