  1. Are you serious that someone would leave anything worth $10,800 in his car? This guy obviously has too much money and too many toys for his own good. Ditto the Financial District woman who put down her $400 wallet containing $730 in cash and other goodies. I wouldn't bet on these Einsteins getting to the finish line in the Darwinism Race.

  2. I would love to see a 10300 solid gold rolex. It must have been quite old to be that inexpensive.

  3. It was a very unfortunate loss, $10,800 worth to be exact. And it is also a reminder to always lock your car doors and roll up your windows especially if you are driving a nice car with gold Rolex inside. But sadly bad things happen to everyone, and maybe the owner was having a very distracting day.

  4. Police have done excellent job because it's job is to protect the people around them from evil forces so well done.

  5. It must have been quite old to be that inexpensive. So very informative and quite unique topic!! Thank you very much for sharing..
