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.
