Meet Hour Passion, the cleverly named watch boutique that just opened at Aria. Inside the 1,500-square-foot boutique find a number of brands from parent Swatch including Longines, Rado, Tissot, Balmain, Certina, Mido, Hamilton, Calvin Klein Watch, Flik-Flak and more.
As a press release notes, "Each location has been designed to offer the customer a relaxing environment to discover the world of watches." Expect to find a contemporary setting that uses materials such as cut stone, wooden floors and stone tiles against a backdrop of glass and polished surfaces. Each brand has its own retail area, using the brand colors, materials and imagery.
