    CC07FA53-6CEB-40C5-8691-C646A618E49D.jpeg

    And the box & papers for my steel Apollo XI 50th Anniversary were taken, though the watch was not as I had worn it to work.

    Additionally, a number of my dress shirts were taken from my closet near where the stolen accessory boxes were, as well as two Yankees caps from my living room. Both New Era - one fitted / flat brim, one adjustable. They also took a cheap pair of green shorts, and all of my socks. My electronics were untouched.

    Please if you have any contacts who can get the word out I’d really appreciate it. I got home after 8pm tonight and don’t know if they’re already pawned or something, but I’ll be reaching out to area dealers in the morning.

    Guess that’s it for me for now.


    Updated Monday 10/28: LE number and receipt date for the Seamaster 300 added; LE cert for the Ultraman was not in fact taken and I’ve removed that bit of data. They did empty out and rifle through the box though.

    Holy cow that was such a nice collection. Did you have insurance by any chance? Any surveillance cameras in your building? That has to be a terrible feeling. Sorry to hear. Check out pawnshops in your surrounding area. Good luck I hope this works out.

    This badly needs the opposite of the “Like” button. Very sorry to read this and best wishes for some level of recovery. Awful.

    Are u able to post the serial numbers or some form? Are you okay if we repost this on IG so we can pass the information out. Spread the awareness. I'm so sorry to hear this.

    OMG! That’s crazy. For sure some of these are going to end up on Instagram/eBay/vintage watch shops in the immediate future. I really hope you recover some/all.

    Very sorry to read this man. These watches can’t surface unnoticed, right? I’ll keep an eye out and pm you if I find anything suspicious. Perhaps a list of serial numbers would help anyone looking out.
