Default Got robbed - my workshop got trashed. arggghhhhh

Well whent down this morning to check on my project down in the basement, i was restoring a bicycle for the wife and had some watch cases i was giving a clean up for some mods. To my horror the bike was gone and the 6309-7040 and 729b cases (most important) i was working on where gone to + some tools i so p.... now not so much the bike and cases but all the work i put in to it is now gone with the wind :'(

i worked on that bike for 3 weeks and the 6309 cases for 1 week now and had all parts ready to pop into the case, man this sucks BIG time...

Now i have 2 perfect movement with everything to put into well NOTHING and no bike for the wife :-[ who steals 2 empty watch cases

Thanks for reading i just had to get it out

Well, hopefully the cops in your town are like the cops in my town and they're busy as hell right now trying to solve this crime. Hold on a minute, I got confused - I'm remembering an episode of "Columbo", that's what it is. The cops in my town are busy playing checkers and ordering carry out. Hope you have better luck - and better cops - where you live.

Sorry to hear that, it is truly awful when something like that happens.


Hope they find them and your stuff.

If you have any pawn shops in your area, check them out. Your stuff may show up. You may have to buy them back, but you would get your work back.

"who steals 2 empty watch cases"

Maybe a larcenous WIS? (and the bike for the getaway?). Sorry for your loss.

That totally blows!! I'm sure you've filed a police report of the theft and maybe you will get lucky. Thank goodness your home insurance covers the bike!

That sucks. Hope they catch the thieves. Watch out for a return visit. Some criminals aren't very bright. Got a hidden camera?
