Though the amount of larger scale jeweler robberies has decreased, street robberies have increased because everyone is now out and about and since watch prices continue to increase. In todays show, we have Tom and Kevin back to refresh our memories on how to be safer while enjoying wearing your watch. Be it at home, outside, or when your buying a watch in person or online. Be safe.
Scottish Watches Podcast #251 : Chatting With The Police – How To Avoid Getting Robbed On The Street, Defrauded and More Wrist check: Tom is wearing his Omega Planet Ocean 600M 2908.50.83. He previously wore the reference 2900.50.91 which was Daniel Craig’s watch in Casino Royal. Kevin is wearing his blue Casio F91W Dave is wearing his Rangemaster. Not sure if this is the one because he didn’t send me any pictures. Rikki is wearing the Zodia Super Sea Wolf 53 Skin Automatic ZO9212 R.I.P Dennis Waterman Amir Khan London Metropolitan Police AMIR KHAN ROBBED AT GUNPOINT; FRIGHTENING MOMENT CAPTURED ON VIDEO Nottingham Post Live Updates Courts Hears Robbery If you see a Rolex, like the Kermit, at a good price remember that there is no such thing. And if you see a watch being sold and then resold a sort time later, there’s a chance that the first buyer realized it was a fake and wants his money back. Buying from a shop: research the company/dealer and their refunding policies and use a credit card
Buying online: ask as many questions as you can, check the serial number, check the receipt, check the watches’ service history, arrange a face-to-face exchange in a public place if you can, check the price and use a credit card
