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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
