I know there are some watch enthusiasts on this forum so I'm hoping this may save someone some grief. SHMBO and I decided we would like to tour Italy. Naples, Rome, Bologna, Venice and then into France. We are both semi-retired and get about as much as we can which has perhaps led to us becoming complacent. Anyway, long story short, we were wandering along the sea front in Naples after a pleasant lunch when we suffered the classic moped attack and our watches were gone. We are not rich but both had Rolexes, mine was my fathers and the wife's was a 50th birthday present. It was all over in a flash, there was no interest in wallets or handbags, just the watches. I'm sure we were set up at the restaurant, but anyway, it's over and done. Please guys and girls, if you are venturing to Italy, be aware. There seems to be no law there, the driving is worse than atrocious, and some of the people are really unfriendly. It's really different from a few years ago. We feel really stupid and angry and our confidence has taken a knock and I would hate this to happen to anyone else. Regards, J.
