Wynn Resorts Holdings, owner of Wynn and Encore resorts in Las Vegas, is opening a hotel, casino and retail complex in Boston this June, and Watches of Switzerland will be one of the anchor tenants of its shopping mall.
The resort sits on 33 acres along the Mystic River and outer Boston Harbor, with a five-star luxury tower overlooking the water and Boston skyline.
The $2.6 billion, three-million-square-foot resort will have a 671 room hotel, 15 restaurants, casino and luxury shopping mall.
The schedule for Boston Harbor could be set back this week because there is a hearing by Massachusetts gaming commissioners that will decide whether Wynn Resorts remains suitable to hold the casino license for the Boston area.
The hearing is taking place a year after Wynn founder and former CEO Steve Wynn resigned amid sexual misconduct allegations. The commission will consider whether historic allegations that were settled by the billionaire should have been disclosed during a competitive bid for the gaming license, and whether a rival bid might have won the license if the allegations were public at the time.
Despite the swirling uncertainty, Watches of Switzerland is already advertising for a team to work at a boutique that is expected to be ready for the originally scheduled June opening.
In postings on LinkedIn Watches of Switzerland says it is looking for a range of talent for the Boston Harbor store.
An advertisement for a store director is aiming to find somebody capable of leading and managing a high performing team, engaging them in the required customer experience and delivery of performance targets; coaching individuals to draw out their full potential you will also identify the motivational tactics required for this purpose.
The candidate will need to be, “A constant role model ensuring that every customer – both internal and external – receives the exceptional customer service they have come to expect.”
