Audemars Piguet will offer to replace clients’ stolen watches as part of a new anti-theft service programme.

The Swiss luxury watch brand best known for the highly sought-after Royal Oak has announced their response to the surge in watch-related crime.

Between January and July 2021 there were 377 reported watch thefts in London, shooting up to 621 in the same period during 2022, according to the Metropolitan Police.

Victims of theft will be able to replace, refund or repair any stolen or damaged watch bought in 2022 or 2023 for two years after the purchase.

This program will run until the end of 2024 and excludes second-hand and vintage pieces.
