Enquirus – Finally an open database for stolen watches and jewelry.
Should my dream finally come true???
Since 2010 during a meeting at INTERPOL in Lyon I have been promoting the importance of such a database. Since nothing happened I have in 2017 and 2019 at meetings of Europol in The Hague and Antwerp again and again pointed out the importance!
With the Richemont company, a globally operating company now operates such an open database for stolen watches and stolen jewelry. Great!
Important for several reasons:
- Until now, it was not possible – even for the police – to check the serial numbers of watches in Europe and worldwide.
- Now finally watches can be checked worldwide also by every jeweler, watchmaker, buyer, private person etc., whether these originate from a crime!
- Thus, the watches presumably lose their “value” for perpetrators and thus reduce the risk for jewelers and private individuals to become victims of crimes with the aim of watches.
