Tokyo Japan Saitama Rolex Yacht-Master II 18k gold 55k USD two minute flight news

Even though Japan is on the list of the top 10 safest countries in the world, this following story proves that you should always be careful when selling your high-value possessions, especially an 18K 55-carat gold Rolex Yacht-Master II. 000 usd.

A man from Saitama, Tokyo scheduled a meeting with a buyer where the two agreed to meet in a parking lot. The buyer showed up in shorts and a T-shirt while wearing thick gloves. While many would have called off the deal, the seller, who admits he was ‘too stupid and honest’, went further by slashing the price of the Rolex to 6.3 million yen ($47,000) and was even obliged when the buyer asked him to go to the convenience store to buy tea – leaving the watch to “the buyer”. The whole flight took place in less than two minutes.

Needless to say, when he returned with the tea, the buyer had left and left the seller the text message “I left it in your car”. However, all is not lost, as the buyer was able to obtain a video recording of the thief as well as CCTV footage of what happened. In good spirits, the salesman even went to the local news for an interview which can be viewed above.
