A weekend in Vegas calls for a certain aesthetic that is more, shall we say, decorative than usual. Like the place itself, your choice of timepiece should be bold, glamorous and maybe even a little over the top. That doesn’t mean style over substance, however. Modern Las Vegas is also about quality and luxury, and the following five timepieces are must-have wrist candy for a Vegas weekend. The Ulysse Nardin Stranger (which croons Sinatra’s “Strangers in the Night” at the push of a button) and the gaming-themed Roger Dubuis Monegasque and Claret Blackjack seem tailor-made for the occasion, and the glamour of the Harry Winston Ocean Tourbillon and Hublot Big Bang Caviar will make you look like a winner, even if you crap out at the crap tables.
Christophe Claret 21 Blackjack, with an interactive blackjack game on the dial. The wearer can go up against a dealer in any one of 4,096 possible hand combinations. On the back is an operable roulette wheel. The watch is a minute repeater.
Hublot Big Bang Caviar, with case and dial in 5N red gold, with 36 diamonds on the bezel and a shiny gold colored strap. It contains the caliber HUB1112 self-winding movement. At 41mm this can be either a men’s or a ladies’ watch.
Harry Winston Ocean Tourbillon Jumping Hour, with skeletonized movement treated with a black, micro-blasted DLC finish and circular grained gear train. The main plate and bridges are hand-chamfered. With twin barrels and a HW4401 caliber manual wound movement.
Ulysse Nardin Stranger, a miniaturized music box wristwatch that plays “Strangers in the Night.” Ulysse Nardin collaborator Ludwig Oechslin incorporated silicium technology for the escapement and anchor of the UN-690 movement.
Roger Dubuis La Monegasque Chronograph in red gold, with a dial that calls to mind a roulette wheel, with the caliber RD78 column wheel chronograph movement with a 45-minute counter.
