My Stainless steel Rolex Daytona with a black face was stolen last weekend from Lake Conroe

Any info that leads to it's return will be worthy of a reward.

Style # 116520
Serial # F236574

Maybe you should contact pawn shops and see if they will put that info in their database.
Also, contact Houston Police Department and see their suggestions ( you might need your case# to make your requests more legitimate).

Keep an eye on e-bay

You can register the serial number with Rolex USA and if the watch is ever presented to an authorized Rolex service center or dealer for repair or even to be authenticated, it *will* be confiscated and you *will* be contacted.

You will need a copy of the police report and proof of ownership in order for them to take your information. You could go to your local authorized dealer with the information or you could go to http://www.rolex.com to get contact information.

Good luck!

It apparently happened at Lake Conroe, which is not in Houston's jurisdictions. Conroe has their own police department.

In that case please contact Lake Conroe Police Department.
There is another place to check on:

Propertyroom.com says they maintain the only nationwide registry available to the general public for recovering lost or stolen goods. They record the serial number of each item received and check the numbers against the Stolen Property Registry. If there's a match, they contact the owner and return the item. Individuals can even register the serial numbers of items they own in case the items are ever lost or stolen.
This looks like a good place for insurers (and customers) to look for stolen jewelry.

You can call and register your watch for overseas transactions here:
http://www.ukpocketwatch.com/serial_rolex.htm

And here is a registration form:
http://www.jewelerssecurity.org/loss_report.html

Check here: Juststolen.net
It is used by pawn shops to track pawns and purchasing.

Ask Conroe to check the HPD Pawn lists. Pawn Brokers routinely turn in lists of everything they buy to law enforcement(and they keep records of your ID). A Daytona would be easy to track down.

Any smart thief would never pawn a stolen item for this reason. A punk kid, maybe. But any pawn broker would know better than to buy a Daytona off a shady character. More than likely they will sell it to a go between who would send it somewhere else far away to be resold.

It's probably long gone. My old boss bought a replica Daytona and wore it while he was doing any "higher risk" behavior, like boating, playing sports, etc. He wore the real one to work, etc.

Thats why I want a Tudor. Most random people would probably think it was a cheap knock off.

If the thief tries to sell the watch for its value, the buyer most likely will go to authorized dealer to make sure the watch is authentic. ( the dealer will have a list of stolen items, if it was reported)
If the thief tries to sell it way under the real value, it will raise a red flag that the watch is stolen, and the buyer will acknowledge the fact that he is buying a stolen item.

Possession of stolen goods is a crime in which an individual has bought, been given, or acquired stolen goods some other way.”

At some point the watch will get maintenance, cleaning, battery change etc. Then the watch will be checked against lost and stolen database and returned to the owner.

“Rolex items should ALSO be reported directly to Rolex (1-800-36-ROLEX), as they maintain a stolen watch database, which they check whenever a watch is sent in for service.”

Let's just hope for a happy ending

OP needs to report it properly

I was not familiar with the Tudor brand (expensive watches do not interest me), so I did a bit of reading.

Saw that sales of the Tudor brand in America were discontinued in 2004. I find comments in many Internet formums about that decision, but no explanation about the reasoning.

Anyone know why?
