What makes you think the watch could have been stolen in first place?

Once you get through this question and you verify it's a genuine VC piece please remember the very basic rule when looking at a certain bargain: if it's too good to be true then it isn't. Which might basically lead to a conclusion that the watch had been robbed off of its original owner...

As far as I know, there is no official data base for stolen watches at VC. But your specific piece can be partly verified I am sure. Sometimes heists are reported to VC and the secrets are kept well hidden somewhere deep in the confines of VC records... Just not all of them...

No i do not believe in this basic rule for example i have bought used watches for  40% or less of the retail price and i have totaly checked them and the watch was not either stolen or fake so the question is can vc with watch serial track if this watch is stolen? does anyone have vc email? thanks
there are specific websites and forums

You can try the VC website. It has links to their concierge service which might be able to help. You might try the police as well if you think it was stolen locally. The problem is that a watch may have changed hands legitimately many times. Unless someone has reported the watch as stolen to VC or one of their retailers you may not be able to find out. Its not a yellow gold Toledo is it? Just wondering... Regards, JB
there is no official VC database of stolen watches as these

watches need to be indicated to VC which is not always the case.
