    UPDATED WITH SERIALS AND MORE DESCRIPTIONS

    Heuer Carrera 2447N, serial 69863, on a black strap with sun buckle

    Heuer Autavia Siffert, serial 143084, on a black strap

    [​IMG]


    Omega Speedmaster Ultraman, LE# 156/2012 , serial 78800112 - no box/ papers/ accessories, on a brown Cordura strap. Curiously, they did take the time to go through the box and take the LE card though.

    [​IMG]

    Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday LE # 103/2012 , serial 78760302 - no box/ papers/ accessories, on a black coated nylon strap

    [​IMG]

    Omega Speedmaster 145.022-71, very rare No-NASA caseback, serial 32204861, on a grey leather nato. Slightly chipped bezel, note wear between 60 and tachymetre

    [​IMG]

    Heuer Carrera 1153, on a brown Wristwatch.me strap. The serial number is too worn to be readable, but is visible. Small ding on the bezel at 7 o'clock

    [​IMG]

    Heuer Carrera 1553, serial 255310 , on a Moss Green Hodinkee strap. Has a Pulsations scale which is very rare (also note the offset 60 at 6 o clock) and please note the rare marker style.

    [​IMG]

    Omega Speedmaster 105.003-65, on a 1039 with shaved 516 endlinks. I don't have the serial but its condition should be noted

    [​IMG]

    Omega Seamaster 300 1957 Trilogy on its original bracelet. I don't have the LE number or serial: Box / papers / accessories WERE stolen for some reason....

    [​IMG]

    Omega Speedmaster Japan Racing 2004, serial 77129849 , on a grey JPM punched suede strap. No box or papers, they were untouched.

    [​IMG]

    Heuer Camaro 9220T, serial 98825 (rare 5 digits for a Camaro) on a light tan strap with Heuer B buckle. Please note the rare tachymetre scale for a Valjoux 92 model; also the condition of the dial lume.

    [​IMG]

    Heuer Camaro 7220SN, serial 175006 , on a brown leather strap. This watch is extremely rare and they don't come up for sale often at all.

    [​IMG]

    Omega Speedmaster 105.012-65, serial 24957726 , on a 1039/516 bracelet

    [​IMG]

    Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Chronograph Vintage, serial 134.8.C1 , on a brown strap. No box or papers, they were untouched.

    [​IMG]

    Omega Speedmaster 145.022-69 with 220 bezel, serial 30996443 , on a worn out Kizzi Nasa velcro strap. Please note the chipped bezel.

    [​IMG]

    Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical on brown leather Nato with PVD keepers. I don't know the serial as Hamilton did not fill out the warranty card fully. No box / papers / accessories, they were untouched.

    [​IMG]

    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 took these but no electronics...

    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.

    Some of these watches are so rare it seems unlikely they’ll remain hidden. The sort of watches of which buyers will check the serial numbers, right? Makes me wonder why there’s no database of stolen watches anyone can consult and alert owners about spotting or being offered any.

    @abrod520 that is truly devastating news.
    This is every watch mans worst nightmare.
    I can’t imagine how you must feel. Stay positive and let’s hope they catch the bastards.

    Oh gosh, I really feel for you. This is terrible news. I really hope you manage to recover some/all of them and that justice is served upon the thief.
