    Los Angeles or New York.

    Though they probably pale in comparison to places like the UAE and China.

    NY and LA are so huge it really depends on the specific area, and the popularity of different watch companies waxes and wanes. I'm in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills often, and lately I've been seeing a lot more Omega, Breitling, and Panerai than Rolex, but 10 years ago everyone and their bother had a black sub.

    I'd say Beverly Hills.

    If you're including all the crappy knock-offs ... China town here in NYC.

    I always look at watches when I go to Las Vegas (or really anywhere for that matter). Last time, I saw a few Submariners while we were checking in at the Bellagio. I kept noticing them and decided to start counting. By the time we got to the elevator to go up to our room, I was up to 7.

    I'd imagine Dallas. It's an extremely pretentious community, and indeed, they are frequently referred to as Texas Timexes, as watches for the lower middle class of the region. Looked at upon with great pride by used car salesman, new lawyers\doctors, and with some degree of disdain by the bourgeoisie.

    I'd imagine, at any rate, it'd be in the vicinity of one of their three big service centers, NYC, Beverly Hills and Dallas.
