New Watches on Display at JCK Las Vegas
spent the weekend in Las Vegas, but the slots and poker machines took a back seat to chronographs, tourbillons and GMTs as we discovered new watches, several of which we missed at Baselworld, at the JCK Watch and Jewelry Fair at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino. Below are some of the highlights. WatchTime
