Las Vegas has become a very important destination for the luxury watch market because at some point or other everyone comes to Vegas. All the best brands in the world have very impressive boutiques to represent themselves at their finest level. Needless to say it wasn’t easy for me to make a decision on who I was going to give the award to for Best Watch Boutique in Las Vegas for 2013.
My criterion was very simple: service, experience, knowledge and brand identity. I am proud to announce the winner for Best Watch Boutique in Las Vegas for 2013 is the Panerai Boutique at Caesars Palace Forum Shops.
This Boutique is run by Boutique Manager Gari Arevalo, who is extremely down to earth and helpful. His staff especially Jo Soranaka exemplifies passion, knowledge, personality and service. I have never been to a watch boutique like this where I feel right at home every time I walk in. No world is perfect but Gari and his team all work together to ensure you have the best possible experience and feel comfortable from the time you enter to the time you leave. Their knowledge is second to none and they are able to relate the story of Panerai in a calm cool collected way that feels genuine and engaging. The best part is not only do they have and abundant collection of the core collection, they also have some very exclusive and unique boutique only pieces on hand for collectors and enthusiast to enjoy. Since this boutique is quite small it’s very easy to see everything that goes on, so it’s really nice because you can feel the unity between all of the associates that work there.
Like all Panerai Boutiques, this Las Vegas Boutique is minimalist modern and yet has that intimate European feel. Out of all the Panerai Boutiques, this one is definitely the brightest and the location couldn’t be better, located right next to Wolfgang Pucks Spago and right across from sister brand Cartier at Caesars Palace Forum Shops. Congratulations to Gari Arevalo and his entire team for winning the award for Best watch Boutique in Las Vegas for 2013. I wish them nothing but continued success and I really hope if you have the chance when your in Las Vegas that you stop by and get an education and experience on one of the few brands that really matter, Panerai.
