I don't get out much. Is there a particular reason Las Vegas is so often mentioned in some association with watches?
I generally associate Vegas with gaming, but I've seen several threads and posts discussing watch-buying in Las Vegas. Just now, I looked at a random new-watch listing on Ebay that sweetens the deal with $300 discount coupon to be used in any number of Vegas AD's.
Is there a horology convention or something that naturally associates watches and Las Vegas? Or is it a demographic kinda thing. Money flows through Las Vegas, but it flows through other vacation cities as well. What's the connection?
Sorry for such a trivial question, but where I live it's rare to hear Las Vegas mentioned at all. Reading about watches on the Internet, I seem to see Vegas referenced more often than New York or Geneva. I can't quite figure out why.
