Every now and then Watch Chest will get a call with a heartbroken client on the other end: their Rolex was stolen. Thankfully most register their timepiece with the homeowner’s insurance agency (one of the FIRST things you should do when you make your purchase!) but it’s still disappointing to feel taken advantage of. Here are 5 of the most common situations we’ve found for a luxury timepiece to get stolen:
