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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
