Mayfair’s latest luxury jewellery and watch boutique, Time Machine, was hit by a smash and grab gang yesterday, who escaped with thousands of pounds worth of stock.
Police were called to Time Machine, in Avery Row, shortly after 10.15am on Jan 6 following the raid which saw four raiders arrive at the scene on two mopeds.
Also armed with knives, the gang smashed their way into the store using axes and hammers before breaking into display cases and making off with a range of high-end watches.
Police confirmed that one person was arrested following the robbery and an investigation in ongoing.
Time Machine, which specialises in luxury watch and jewellery brands with stock including Chopard and Cartier, only opened three weeks ago on December 14 2015.
