Seattle, Washington - Prosecutors charged a 31-year-old man last week for his alleged part in a robbery that caused about $750,000 in damage and losses to the downtown Seattle Ben Bridge watch and jewelry store.
Authorities believe Nathaniel McRae served as the "lookout" for three other men who invaded the store Dec. 22 and stole $236,000 in Rolex watches after smashing out display cases with sledge hammers.
Workers at the store claim a man entered the Fourth Avenue shop about 5:53 p.m. that day and conspicuously avoided eye contact with sales associates while looking around, appearing to watch for security guards or police officers, according to the Seattle police report.
The man headed straight for the Rolex boutique within the store.
Staffers, noticing the man's suspicious behavior, worried that he might be connected with recent smash-and-grab thefts reported at Bellevue and Lynnwood Ben Bridge stores.

This guy has several different kinds of brand new fakes of different brands listed on Craigslist, so it is the belief of fakewatchbusta that he is a dealer of fakes. #shame #sinner
Attention Local Police, Federal Agents, and IP Attorneys... I lay it out, so y'all can play it out. Screen shot below provided as Evidence for Prosecution and Civil Litigation. Shut this clown down. Here is a link to his shady listing: https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb/jwl/d/deep-sea-dweller-submariner/6446092851.html
This is the worst of the worst. Counterfeit "replica" high-end vintage timepieces made to deceive. Selling items bearing counterfeit trademarks is a Federal Felony and is also a serious Crime in the State of California. But this seller is selling a watch that emulates a very expensive vintage Blancpain. It would be very challenging for pawn shops and potential future buyers to know whether or not it is authentic.
This guy needs to get prosecuted for Trademark Infringement at the very least. I can think of a couple of other charges that the Feds and local Cops could tack on to a seller of a watch like this.
Don't let this guy get away with this. This watch can cause an unsuspecting collector to lose tens of thousands of dollars in the future.
30granite needs to be exposed. This is utterly ridiculous.
Here is the link to 30granite's listing of this fake Blancpain watch on ebay: Click Here to see this fake Blancpain and help get the seller locked up.
Don't let him get away with it. If you are in Berkeley, California, contact the local police and the local FBI to report this watch. Don't let Blancpain and future unsuspecting collectors be victimized.
Help fight the war against counterfeit watches. The term counterfeit also applies to replicas, clones, fakes, etc. They are all counterfeits and it is a crime to sell these watches. The seller can also face Civil Litigation for violating the Lanham Act.
