Your watch is blacklisted by our partners
We inform the manufacturer about the theft of your watch directly. Most manufacturers will be able to blacklist the serial number of your watch and block the watch if it appears at one of their authorized service centers.
Our team proactively informs as many actors of the watch industry as possible (non-exhaustive list): watchmakers, independent dealers, auction houses, authorized distributors with a Certified Pre-Owned program, and online platforms
Our partner watchmakers help to increase the return rate of stolen watches. When a watch enters the certification process with the watchmakers, the serial number of every watch is systematically checked.
We forward the information to our partner, The Watch Register, the world's largest database of lost and stolen watches. It is the central database used by authorities, police forces, and insurance companies. The biggest players in the watch market trust this active surveillance network.
