    Agree that the waiter/ waitress was possibly the point person on this. Something about the one lady that served me that seemed suspicious, we asked for a high chair for the baby and she kind of forgot. Was probably busy making comms...

    more than likely a waiter or staff member let them know you had one. There is a HUGE spike in jewelry store robberies, targeting only watches.


    sucks but this is how the country is, we met a client who opted to pay his balance in cash, a substantial amount. had to take spare mags for days and be on alert for the full 120km trip home


    sorry for your experience, glad nobody was injured

    Damn those bastards and may God judge them sooner than later.
    Thanks, definitely very grateful and realise it could have been far worse. It's terrible that all that is left is a constant battle between these criminals and their total dis-regard for life and property. Sad.

    I am sorry to hear about your traumatic experience. My first advice is ro get some form of trauma counselling. At this stage it may seem fine but the experience has long lasting effects some of which only materialise years later. I have been hijacked 2 so I speak from experience.

    On both occasions I had my watch stolen. 1 was a high end Seiko and the other a Victorinox watch. As a result I do not currently wear a watch. Everything I need to know is on my cell phone. I cant understand my someone would wear a rolex on a daily basis. Rather keep it for special occasions. I have a long service high end watch inherited from my late father. It lives in my safe. I wont dare take the risk of loosing it.

    Inform Rolex South Africa. They will flag the watch as stolen in the event that it ever came in for a service anywhere in the world.
