Panerai PAM00446 Tourbillion Pocket Watch

I have had the honor and privilege of attending many watch events all over the world throughout the years. There are only a handful that really stick out in my mind as being truly memorable, connective and enjoyable. Last evening, June 15, 2013, was one of those events that really made an impact that I will never forget.

By now, we all know that I am a Panerai fiend. Last week, I was invited by the best boutique in Las Vegas for 2013, Panerai, to an exclusive by invitation only event at the Nobu Towers at Caesars Palace. This event was done first class from top to bottom.

The event was held at a private two-floor suite with a total of twenty five people. 12 collectors flew in from all over the world to participate in this very classy yet casual event. Panerai used this medium to kick off and celebrate the novelties of 2013 presented at SIHH in Geneva Switzerland back in January.

Also in attendance, besides the incredible staff of the Panerai Las Vegas Boutique, was North American Director of Retail, Jean-Bernard Diez who was incredibly gracious, down to earth and engaging.

What I loved most about this event was not only did Panerai showcase the new watches being released, but celebrated their collectors and made them feel a part of something very special unique and exclusive. The suite was beautifully  transformed into a very chique watch salon, with food prepared by world-renowned sushi house Nobu, while the drinks were flowing in abundance, as collectors were mingling and trying on the novelties and creating an amazing energy around the brand by their in-depth passionate conversations and humor.

I have never seen a watch brand evoke so much emotion, passion and connection as Panerai. From my experience, collectors stay for the food and drink and then leave as soon as there is no more food and drink to be had. In this case, collectors wanted to stay longer and talk more and hang out together, The event started around 7pm and everybody left around almost 1 in the morning.

Unlike other events from the past, this event proved that the product was definitely the hero.  The new product for 2013 is absolutely amazing. Collectors responded very well to it. Many pictures and wrist shots were taken. Subsequently, I am sure orders we already placed.  I was very impressed with the new Submersible Bronzo Power Reserve, PAM00507, retails for $13,200, which is strange because I didn’t really think I would like it.  What I really came to see was it’s darker brother, PAM00508 , the 1950 Submersible Ceramica. retails for $17,500.  I liked it, but was not overly impressed to be honest. The watch looks smaller in an all black finish and the strap is tapered, making this watch look less stealth and masculine. Even though both watches are exactly the same size of 47 mm, the Bronzo feels bigger, looks more historic and just has a more versatile aesthetic over all. Other pieces on hand, included the new PAM00510, which will eventually replace the iconic PAM00111, as well as the new Regatta Flyback in Titanium with 1950 case, PAM00526 and many others.

I would like to sincerely thank Gari Arevalo, Panerai Las Vegas Boutique Manager and his entire staff for putting on an incredibly stellar event second to none, which brought together collectors from all over the world, to experience Panerai on an intimate level, like they have never experienced before.

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.
