Hi all,
I'm off to Vegas in a few months, the Breitling site lists 12 AD's. With that many, I'm thinking there could be some price competition. Has anyone had any experience shopping for Lings in Vegas? Any dealers to recommend? Thanks for the help.

last time we went to vegas the best deals were in the pawn shops they had quite a few in there but usually no box or paperwork so buyer beware :roll:

Here's a writeup I did on my experience in Vegas last year: http://breitlingsource.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=8679.

Very nice writeup. GF wants to go to LV for her 21st birthday next year. I'll be sure to check out the AD's with her (double ouch? :D).

Tesorini at Bellagio is another AD in Vegas. I've never purchased from them, but I did browse a few times and never felt pressured to buy.

The discounts in Vegas are minimized by a perfect storm of rich guys, casino winners, and people spending freely on vacation. Too bad it's not pool season, that's where the real fun is. If you can take your eyes off the ladies (and you probably won't be able to by the way) you will see more Seamasters and Rolex Subs than you could imagine. It's like they come off an assembly line... all the more reason to pick up a B!

The AD inside the Mirage is solid - a small shop but willing to discount more than most.

Also - visit Tourneau at Caesars. Don't buy anything there, but their selection is unbelieveable. It's amongst the biggest, if not the biggest timepiece shop in the US.....

Enjoy and good luck!

If you talk to Roffensien you'll have better deals in Canada.

I'd recommend stopping by Venetzia Fine Jewelry at the The Shoppes at the Palazzo. They are very friendly (unlike some of the other ADs on the Strip), have a nice selection of LEs I'd never seen before and I worked out a nice little deal on my Chrono Avenger M1 there last year.

If you want to buy, I'd call George and have it sent to your hotel. Even if an AD in Vegas gives a good discount, you'd still have to pay sales tax if you want to leave the AD with the watch.

Last time I was in Vegas, horologio in the venetian, they were very willing to deal. So willing that without prompting they were suggesting prices that were...well...suggestive.

Of course I did NOT say this... but good ADs usually understand the excitement of the purchase, and will be willing to ship the BOX ONLY to your out-of-state address, while u walk away with the watch on ur wrist...

Of course, this sales tax discounts usually applies only to "local" ADs -- ie., those without multi-state branches.
