Robbery at WatchPro halts daily news


The daily news service at the website for WatchPro magazine was suspended on Friday following a robbery at publisher ITP Promedia’s offices in London.

During the robbery the editorial team’s equipment was stolen, which has hampered the sending of WatchPro.com’s daily news alert.

Police are currently investigating the robbery, which took place at the office on Baldwins Gardens in Hatton Garden during the night on Thursday February 8. Anyone with any information regarding this crime should contact police on 101.


Normal service at WatchPro.com resumed on Monday 11 and the March issue of WatchPro magazine will be published on time as planned.

None of the team at ITP Promedia – which publishes Professional Jeweller, WatchPro, Lingerie Insight, Menswear Insight and Catering Insight magazines – was hurt during the robbery.
