Watchmaker's

Lena Séraphin

A crime leads to a crime. The watchmaker’s is robbed and the storekeeper is mugged. The robbery leads to another robbery, leading to yet another robbery. A limping, emotionally disabled watchmaker, a con man, and a bimbo walking a poodle, all use their own methods to snatch the valuables. The recurring robberies at the watchmaker’s make a criminal a victim and a victim a criminal who returns to the crime scene. Watchmaker’s is dedicated to a man who was punched in the face for wearing a bootleg Rolex.
