MB&F’s M.A.D. Gallery in Geneva is reported to have been robbed at gunpoint, on Tuesday, August the 8th at 6pm. No shots were fired and none of the staff working at the gallery were hurt but the two armed individuals managed to flee with a fair number of MB&F watches.
Law enforcement investigating the matter have commented saying that the robbers are known to be bound towards the French border, which is a stone’s throw away from the Old Town of Geneva, where the gallery is located.
MB&F themselves have yet to comment on the matter and the total value of the stolen watches have yet to be determined. Although, as pointed out by watchesbysjx.com, considering how unique MB&F’s watches are, the robbers are likely to find it difficult to sell the pieces without raising suspicion, thus rendering the stolen ware pointless.
While the robbers remain at large, concern has been raised about the matter that this is the fifth robbery to have occurred in Geneva within the year involving a luxury goods store.
