Who knows but least one can do is explain how they were stolen to furnish others with knowledge that may prevent happening again.

Because if it's a dealer that got robbed in his store it tells a whole different picture than a burglary at home.

I agree! And its not like having your ol' dora the explorer watch taken from you. ROLEXes are "Much more than a time keeper, they are a work of art" ~Tim Swike. I know so many people who harass about "just getting any old watch so you dont spend $$$$ of dollars on just a watch"! its not cool. And dont get me started on the fakes!!!! Those phoneys deserve to be steam rolled!

And I am sorry to hear you lost your collection

Ouch! Hope your watches were fully insured. Good luck

We're the lucky few that still have our Rolex and there're so many people try to survive out there.

Just think of all those Louis Vuitton and Gucci stores looting all over the USA lately. Your assumptions are wrong. They are not stealing because they are hungry but because they want to escape their status of being poor. And being poor today means you don't have any of those wealth status they are stealing in the first place.
Well said

This idea that people are stealing to eat is a trope right out of Les Miserables. At least that novel reflected historical context at the time.

Likely a burglary of some sort.

I would pile on that inequality is as natural as a sunrise. Equality is not the natural state of things. Bee and ant colonies ran by identical sister clones are seemingly examples... except then there's the queen herself who is considerably larger and more powerful with more status than the army of clones. So again. Inequality appears to be the natural state of things.

This is horrible. Hope you could recover them all back.

First three watches are BNIB why Rolex and not the others? If the Rolex were kept as full set inside a safe or something how could it be stolen, with other three and all six watches in total?

Doing really well. Haven't heard from OP but that's cool. He's always so busy with work and kids. Hope the gym was good. Don't skip leg day.

The below watches were stolen from my hand carry luggage on the way back from my holiday. I suspect it was stolen from my hand luggage when it was stowed in the overhead locker on the plane, as Heathrow and Doha airport security have reviewed footage and they have not seen anything untoward happening at the airports. I was on a Qatar Airways flight.

I wanted to flag these on this forum, in case any of them pop up. They will all not have the original papers and/or warranty card, as I hold these.

1. Rolex Submariner reference 16800. Serial number is 7476935.
2. Rolex Oyster Perpetual reference 126000 Turquoise Blue 36mm. Serial number is T10491M1.
3. Rolex Explorer reference 124270. Serial number is F5L39247.
4. TAG Heuer Carrera Skipper reference CBS2213.FN6002. Serial number is BWE3971.

If any of them pop up on your radar for any reason or are offered to you, I would be very grateful if you could alert me, and potentially law enforcement, in a discreet way. I know it is a long shot, but I have registered these pieces on The Watch Register and will shortly be registering it on Enquirus, on the slim possibility that it will flag up if someone tries to sell it on and a savvy buyer checks these registers.

I have the purchase receipts etc that prove I am the rightful owner. I wanted to leave these here so that a quick search of the serial numbers on Google would bring up this post.
This guy is most likely looking for attention or just trying to get serial numbers on the web to ruin another dealers business.

He started a thread https://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=937420 then disappeared like the OP. He posted here once we caught on

OP is a flipper / dealer on MODA using his personal Facebook account. I doubt he'd risk permanent ban from that group and post a duplicate BOLO on TRF. I wouldn't rope him into the same crowd as this other guy. I think he's just using the open platform for Google crawler.
