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.

Dallas and Houston are pretty big too, it isn't called the Texas Timex for nothing

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.

Texas has bourgeoisie? I thought those guys were just on the television show Dallas (or hanging out on the campus of SMU). You know the world is hopelessly lost in materialism if bourgeoisie in Texas is now calling the shots. I would think most people in Texas wouldn't know the meaning of the word. From what I saw, most of Texas was pickups and SUVs (with odd passing/overtaking practices), guns, Mexican food, God, country music, big interstates, big universities, and steamy weather. I must have missed how the other half lived...

The Rolex capital is easy to find. Want directions?
Choose any big city. Now go to that city's business/financial district. Bam, you're there.
I find those people wear Patek or Casio (either or). It's usually the lower middle class to middle-middle class that I see with Rolex. People with something to prove, basically.

Lol not sure what is defined as lower middle class but I'm pretty sure they aren't spending thousands on a wrist watch.

Id say the more population you have the more Rolex's you will see...
