    Stolen Rolex and Omega Watches

    Hey Guys thought I'd add to this section

    Had a break-in back in December 2010. Had the following stolen:

    Rolex GMTiic 116710, box stolen but papers not. Serial No: V736844
    Omega Seamaster Automatic 300m Co-Axial 212.30.41.20.01.002, box and papers not stolen: Serial No: 81958037

    Both watches are SS with the GMT obviously having a black ceramic bezel. The Omega again has a black bezel.

    Not expecting big things but thought i'd try anyway!

    As a side note, wouldn't it be better if those members posting a stolen watch included info about whether the box and papers were also stolen, or just the naked watch? I know the chances of these watches being offered to forum members are very slim, but it's always possible.

    It's a reasonable suggestion and one I will gladly cater to :)

    Yes. The chances of the watch appearing HERE are slim, but how many of us look in a pawn brokers window, go in, try on...?

    From there, a call to the local police would be good.

    Mike.

    PS: @ "DC Hogan": Will you check that these are recorded on PNC?.. Doing it twice is better than nonce.

    Mike.

    Over 2 years have passed since these were stolen but still holding out hope that 1 day i'll get a phone call saying they've been found!

    Alas, if only i'd had insurance!! :(

    Keep that hope alive Qwerty.

    I had a dozen or so watches stolen last year and six months later the police traced me through the Rolex which had been found buried under a hedge.
    I got back the top 5 most expensive watches stolen - presumably because they couldn't be shifted quickly down the pub.

    I take it you've reported the Rolex stolen at an AD?

    That's good to hear!

    And no, haven't reported it stolen to an AD but gave the serial number to the police and reported it to Rolex's stolen register. Lets hope they turn up one day!

    One day...

    5.5 years and counting!

    6 years and counting.

    Still holding out hope that whoever now has my watches sends one in to get serviced and it flags as stolen :(
