    Anyone shopped at Tourneau in Las Vegas before?

    Heading over to the US next year and the RRP of watches in the US appear to be significantly cheaper than here in Australia. Does anyone know if this particular store does discounts and if so around what sort of discounts I can expect? Thanks :)

    That depends on your ability to haggle. Be prepared to be overwhelmed. Roman Times is just a few feet away and there're
    known for price considerations.

    Been to both. I've never found any decent discounting in Vegas, but take Watchbreath's advice and try Roman Times. The selection is amazing (at least when I was there).
    The smart dealers (anywhere these days) are happy to help serious buyers who don't present themselves as bottomfeeders.
    Vegas also gets people from all cultures, certainly the ones that haggle for everything, so never be afraid to ask.

    I go window shopping in Las Vegas a couple of times a year. Tourneau has an incredible collection, all at full suggested retail prices. Good for looking, but not so good for discounts as far as I can tell. But then again, I never bothered trying to haggle with them. Roman Times is good. Also look for the shops in Venetian and Palazzo.

    I just got back from Vegas this last weekend and Tourneau was one of my stops. They were actually the most willing to discount, I ended up at the high end of Internet/gray market pricing (over 20% discount). Wynn was the least willing to discount at 10%, and the reps were quite rude. Everywhere else fell between those two. Tourneau has a ton of reps that will circle you like vultures, and I'm sure some are more willing to haggle than others... if you get stuck with one that won't deal, you might try moving to someone different. As a disclaimer, I was mostly shopping for high end (Vacheron, Patek, AP, etc) - it may be slightly different with less expensive brands... though I doubt it. I did have the same luck with an Omega Soyuz discount, for what that's worth. IMO, they're basically willing to discount to what gray market sells at, if you're good enough to make it happen.

    If you are going to be in Vegas, be sure to check out Horologio at Venetian Casino. Last september I was offered 35% discount for Bell & Ross.

    Anything in Vegas might be a little more ameniable to discounting these days. It is very depressed there right now with all the foreclosures. I think you can play hard to get and knock down a pretty good deal. Generally around the country Tourneau isn't noted for discounting very much. If you are looking for a midline brand of watch though (e.g. TAGs, Omegas, Breitling, and similar), you might want to check out some larger jewelry stores as well which don't have a national chain backing them in lean times. They might be a bit more hungry. And don't forget that Vegas is always going to be a good place to pick up pre-owned, especially the brands with airs like Rolex.

    So what difference does it make, whether it's 20 minutes or 20 years, since neither amounts to the faintest echo of the tiniest whisper in the thunder of time.

    I wasn't going to say it, but I was sure thinking it!

    What would some of the larger jewelry stores be? I have absolutely no idea as I haven't been to the States before. Also, how much would 2nd hand Rolexes start at? I would love to get a Rolex on my wrist but I am a little apprehensive on its reliability as if something was to happen to it I probably have no way to do anything about it.
