Making it easy to be targeted, followed, home invaded, etc.
Happened last week to a watch dealer who after flexing Mille and Patek watches on is wrists and was home invaded in Hollywood Hills.

A tourist had a £115,000 watch ripped from his wrist in a "violent" robbery in Mayfair . The 55-year-old man was staying in a hotel in the affluent central London area when he was pounced upon by three men, police said. During the attack in Berkeley Squar...
Makes me sick

Especially since these guys have zero empathy zero compassion. You worked hard to buy such a watch, they like it and take it. And the stab wound? They’ll probably blame that on the victim; hadn’t he resisted they wouldn’t have had to stab him. The world u...
The whole episode sounds absolutely dreadful!

Imagine the horror they went through. I once got robbed at knifepoint in South London, the emotional scar of that carried on for years...

Many years ago a guy with a knife tried to rob me. That turned out pretty bad for him because I was about to give him what he wanted when he, with my wallet in his hand, tried to stab me anyway. That was not his best move of the day so to speak. Alas that...
No it’s quit logical

It’s logical to avoid a place where something bad happened; that’s human nature. Same as after a burglary in your house you better move coz it never feel the same again. Back then I just was lucky, the guy unlucky. He had his change to walk away with the ...

I've a dim memory of walking a Kuwait City sidewalk . . .

. . . and seeing street vendors selling gold jewelry and coins. This was ~ 1966. Don't know if trends have changed since, but I was impressed by the orderliness of Kuwait back then. I'm sure penalties for criminality were a, if not the , primary reason. A...

My father started working in ِAbu-Dhabi around 1969, at that time he was flying BAOC with a stopover in Bahrain. There he visited a jeweller who lent him jewellery to bring home in Paris for my mother to make her selection. My father would then pay for wh...

So sad that one cannot wear the fruits of his/her labour.
A 55 years old man

A victim of crime, and do not forget his wife who suffer it. A Breguet is different than a Rolex, so criminals have knowledge what watches have value. They would not rob somebodies Fossil or Diesel. The west is certainly not a safe place. Everywhere in th...
