Hello everyone,,,
Spent a few days in LV over the past week and had the opportunity to hit a few watch sources - some comments:
IWC at Encore - nice new boutique, friendly, helpful staff. Sent me away with their "book" which is pretty interesting reading and has, of course, all their offerings. Favorite was the Spitfire chrono:
the grey face and the detail are really nice. What do others think? Next door is JLC (and next door to that, Piaget, all Richemont brands)
The JLC people were also proud to show off their new boutique and let me try on anything I was interested in; I declined to try on the $250K (something like that) toubillion, etc., trying to stay within my means. I am really interested in either the Navy Seals: ... 18470.html. The Navy Seals is deceptively light - it is Ti. I liked the fit and finish and surprisingly the coated bracelet.
or the Extreme: ... 68470.html Beautiful piece, I don't know how I will not make this my next one, although a little pricey for me.
Finishing on the JLCs is beautiful, they are all in-house, and produced in relatively small quantities.
One thing noted at the JLC and IWC boutiques - every watch had the correct time and date. Not so in the others.
I also ventured to the Breitling boutique at Caesar's: My only interest was with the Navi's, and i tried on a couple. Helpful people, the boutique was not to the level of the JLC or IWC environments. Didn't see anything new that I was enthused enough to try on, just the Navis, which I wanted to try to see how they wore relative to my Evo - much smaller and lighter, and i may need one of them.
Took a walk through Tourneau just to see all the other brands - with their rep I have never considered buying anything from them! There is a lot to look at; had a chat with the VC salesperson- asked how the biz was, he said pretty good, mostly due to Chinese buyers, who pay full price. Americans were looking for discounts, not the Chinese. Interesting.
I also made a trek through the big watch store at Palazzo, looked at Brueget, VC, Cartier, Blancpain, etc. Nice place.
LV is a great place to look at watches, and it cost far less than my table time.
