Four more thefts of luxury timepieces were reported in Paris alone since Friday, the police sources confirmed. On Saturday, a man reaching out of a car window to extend its side-view mirror had his Patek Philippe stolen by someone who then fled on scooter. And in the night between Friday and Saturday, three other people were separately robbed of their watches, which were reportedly valued between 5,000 euros and 50,000 euros, or $6,780 to $67,800.
Paris has become one of the fastest-growing markets in the world for high-end watches, fueled by a stream of Asian tourists.
In the last 12 months, Vacheron Constantin, Breitling, Baume & Mercier, IWC and A. Lange & Söhne have opened stores on Rue de la Paix.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
