    It such a rare watch that it becomes almost worthless for whoever buys it as it will forever shunned.

    Worth broadcasting a hefty reward as the robbers most likely have no idea what they've got.

    Good luck with the recovery.

    One thief got arrested but the other got away with the watch. No news of the watch yet.
    Thanks for sharing

    Don't think so. Serious money in the dial, hands, bezel en pushers. I'm afraid it will be culled for parts

    @Mark020 I would edit out. They may be smart enough to do what you said, but if they aren't and they Google the serial and find this thread I wouldn't want them to get any ideas...

    I also thought that watches like this “have to show up sometime”, but I have a very good friend that had a Patek 5970P Black dial mugged and it never showed up. Less than 100 were produced...

    The risk is always that it’s a planned theft where they seek a target. In this case the watch is sold before its stolen...

    Anyway, let’s hope it turns up ASAP!

    a few things to do: consider the seller as well; might be a targeted attack. inform all german watchfairs now. have flyers printed and handed out with the tickets to the collectors there. and inform all dealers at these fairs as well. . best time to sell these beauties is before christmas. inform the museum in biel with the number. an informed buyer will contact them to verify that everything fits...... good luck. kind regards. achim

    Heartbreaking.
    At least one of these MFR's got caught. ::censored::
    Give me a pack of toothpicks and about 20 minutes with this guy and I'll get him to sing the other guy's name, full address, and social security number... In Yiddish... :whipped:
