An English language Greek newspaper tells of three men who robbed a Rolex store in Athens yesterday. The gang posed as customers, then one man produced a gun while the other two stuffed their pockets with fistfuls of Rolexes. The three discriminating thieves took off on foot, however the shopkeeper hastily enlisted the assistance of a pedestrian who bravely pursued one of the men. Fortunately for our hero, he picked one of the two thieves who had Rolexes in his pocket rather than the one with the gun, so instead of getting shot, the poor guy had Rolex watches thrown at him. The ploy worked, and all three thieves managed to escape. (Something tells me if it were Timex watches getting lobbed through the air, at least one of these guys would be in custody right now.) The article does not mention whether the pursuer was injured, or whether he is currently at large, as well, though the moral of the story is clearly to keep a few Rolex replicas on hand during your next heist.
