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.

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
