The robber, disguised as an old man, entered the shop at around 11am, took a handgun out of his bag and threatened the shop assistant. After picking up the loot, he used a spray to cover his tracks before heading in the direction of Beausoleil on a scooter driven by an accomplice who had been waiting nearby.

Monaco Watch Company’s appeal for help

The injured party, Monaco Watch Company, is now appealing for help, as reported by Monaco-Matin. On the brand’s website, the company says it is offering a reward to anyone who comes forward with “the decisive tip that leads to the arrest of the culprit or the recovery of the watches.”

It states that it is offering a “Small reward: for useful tips that contribute to solving the case”  and a  “Large Reward: for the decisive tip that directly leads to the arrest of the culprit or the recovery of the watches.”
