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.

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
