Thieves took watches worth a total of $300,000 from a jewelry store on Madison Avenue in Manhattan’s Upper East Side.

Two men entered Jaeger-LeCoultre and threatened employees with a pistol, instructing them to get on the floor, the New York Post reports. The crime occurred just before 11 a.m. Monday.

A surveillance video (below) shows the robbery.

The thieves “began smashing two of the shop’s glass display cases with a claw hammer to plunder the pricey watches,” according to the Post.

They took five watches, “including one right off a man inside the store.”

The thieves wore dark sunglasses, and their faces were covered with scarves.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
