Police forces globally register watches stolen in smash-and-grabs, robberies, burglaries, snatches, scams and frauds on our database. We successfully locate watches by means of our widespread search operations on the watch market, even after property has crossed international borders.
The total value of the stolen property recovered by THE WATCH REGISTER and our parent company the Art Loss Register over 30 years totals hundreds of millions of pounds. The intelligence supplied to police as a result of our stolen property recovery has led to dozens of arrests and convictions.
Police officers can also search recovered watches against the database to identify if they have been reported to us as stolen, in order to reunite property with its rightful owner.
