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. Women Ultraplate 34mm in 18k white gold with white mother-of-pearl dial by Blancpain ($31,900). Wynn & Company Watches, 702-770-3520.
