Stolen Watch not Ready Cash for Thieves

Stolen Watch not Ready Cash for Thieves

Postby koimaster » April 9th 2018, 4:42pm

Watches have long been easy targets for thieves. Stolen off a wrist or taken in a smash-and-grab attack, high-end timepieces, easily transportable and often untraceable, could easily be turned into cash.

But that has been changing. The rise of online services specializing in identifying lost or stolen watches has helped law enforcement, dealers and diligent buyers — even in Miami, which the FBI has identified as one of the top fencing hubs in the United States (and where the Watches & Wonders fair is opening Friday).

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
