Lost Gold Watch At Pymble

June 27th, 2010 by Brad Lovell

I drove out to Pymble in the hope of finding Lyn’s lost gold ladies watch. This is one of those stories where the watch was on Lyn’s wrist at the start of the day, but by the end of the day it was no longer there. After retracing her steps, Lyn figured the most obvious place for the watch to be hiding would be in her gardens. Both Lyn and her family had checked the area thoroughly with no luck. I too spend a good 2 hours searching for the watch to no avail. Fingers crossed that the watch does turn up one day. It is not unusual for them to reappear in the most unusual places.

Lost Omega Watch Manly Beach

June 25th, 2010 by Brad Lovell


Jenny had this misfortune of losing her Omega Dive watch while swimming at Manly Beach. This was a situation where Jenny entered the water with her watch on, and left the water with it off. She was not sure exactly where the watch had fallen, but spent most of her time in the area plotted in the photo above. I spent over two hours scanning the area with my water detector, but I had no luck in locating Jenny’s watch. If anyone has happened to pickup an Omega watch similar to the on pictured, please contact me so I can put you in touch with Jenny. Jenny has offered a generous reward for its return.

Gold Watch Lost In Nelson Bay Sand Dunes

January 6th, 2010 by Brad Lovell

Nancy and her husband spent Christmas Day at Nelson Bay. Unfortunately the day ended badly with Nancy losing her watch which was a wedding gift from her father. Nancy put the watch in her pocket before riding down the Sand Dunes. After a few slides down the dunes, Nancy reached into her pocket and noticed the watch was missing. A couple of days later, myself and good friend Tony from Jewellery Rescue drove out to Nelson Bay to meet Nancy and her husband. Nelson Bay is normally well out of my area of service, being overĀ  a 3 hour drive. But I could hear how desperate Nancy sounded over the phone, and did not have the heart to say I couldn’t help her due to distance. After a quick drive from the 4WD tour company that takes people to the dunes, we we’re at the spot Nancy believed she lost the watch. Tony and I got to work, slowly and methodically metal detecting the steep sand dunes. I was actually expecting to dig many signals on these dunes, as people would be always losing rings coins and car keys, but only silence from our detectors. After about 3 hours plus of an exhausting search, we we’re unable to locate Nancy’s gold watch. My feeling is the heavy gold watch has sunk deep into the soft sand dune, well beyond what our metal detectors could reach. Nancy and her husband we’re very disappointed, as we’re Tony and myself. But we did give it our best shot. I really hope someone finds the watch some day and hands it over to the 4WD tour company.
