LAS VEGAS, NV - OCTOBER 28:  Co-President and Artistic Director Chopard Caroline...

Elton was at the official opening of the jewel-box Chopard boutique at the Wynn on Sunday

Accompanied by CEO and jewelry designer Caroline Scheufele (in the photo above this article), he cut the ribbon, and joked to journalist Robin Leach that it was like christening a new ship with champagne.  

 

Chopard is the jewelry and watch sponsor of the luminary's AIDS foundation, and 15 percent of each sale from 50 models in his watch collection is donated to his charity. Elton proudly displayed the one-of-a-kind two-skull watch that Caroline designed and presented to him as a gift for the celebration. He also owns one of the 25 limited-edition MKII timepieces he wore to his Oscar party this year.

 

In addition, Elton revealed that hes seriously thinking of extending his Caesars Palace residency to 2016 or even 2017.

Ive really had the greatest time in Las Vegas. Its been the best. Its so good to stay put in one place so long, and were only a quick trip from the new house in Los Angeles, he remarked.
