Diamond set Omega watch recovered from lake in Warwickshire village

from Oxford (England, United Kingdom)

This search was a difficult one. It was the second time I had been to recover some items that had been…well no easy way to say it but quite literally thrown in a lake.

The first visit was very difficult, it was just before Christmas and half the lake/ large pond was frozen which in some ways was helpful as the lost items would have been on the surface of the ice, so I only needed to look where the water had thawed. The water was extremely cold but I did have very high waders. that session I managed to recover one diamond ring and two bracelets before the cold really started to wear me down. Also I didn’t have the best sand scoop.

So I decided to return a couple of days ago with an all new sand scoop constructed by me using an old aluminium fire extinguisher. This thing worked great and was small enough not to grab masses of silt that was very heavy last time. The problem was this time there had been lots or rain and the water level was about a foot higher. this meant in the deepest parts the water would go over the top of my waders ( nearly 5 ft) and fill me up, very uncomfortable, also the control pod of my detector would have been submerged so that was cable tied to my shoulder strap. Anyway after a few hours and bits of trash I had a good signal, there was zero visibility in the water as one could imagine with the amount of silt, so retrieving that target was a challenge, what came out was part of a watch bracelet that was an item I had been tasked to recover. The rest of the watch had to be very close, another ten minutes and out came the rest of the the watch. It was diamond set ladies Omega Constellation with mother of pearl dial and diamonds for each numeral, and still working!

A very happy lady! and a very smelly drive home!

Lost watch in a private pond near Fairdealing and Poplar Bluff Mo

from Cape Girardeau (Missouri, United States)
Contact: 1-573-318-8838

My metal detecting friends Dale and Brian asked if I would help find a submerged watch for Preston. The watch was given to Preston 25 yrs. ago by his mother. It had fallen into his private pond about 2 yrs. ago.
On arrival Dale helped me set up the diving equipment and acted as my safety watch. Brian provided moral support while sitting in the shade and drinking a sports drink. The watch was found under the dock in about 10 minutes.
The dive was somewhat pleasant due to the 97 degree day, except for the pesky little bluegill that kept biting me.

Contact: 1-732-581-0285

Yesterday afternoon i received a referral call through Ronnie DeGhetto, Owner of Gold Digger Detectors in Raritan NJ for a lost watch. I then spoke to Mark, The owner of the Tag Heuer watch valued at 2k Which he had dropped in the sand while him and his wife were packing up for the day. After digging around trying to find it with no luck he decided to seek out some help. He found Ronnie’s info doing a web search who then gave him my number. I made arrangements to meet him out on the beach later that night. Within 20 Minutes of searching Mark had his watch back in his hands! A 10 year anniversary gift from his wife. Another happy return!

Lost Rolex Watch Found in Palo Alto with Metal Detector

lost rolex found with metal detector

Can you see the Rolex beneath the Poison Oak?

William was working outside his beautiful creekside home in Palo Alto. He had gathered a large armful of branches and clippings and hauled them up to his dumpsite. When he threw the clippings, he stumbled, caught himself on a tree branch, and felt his Rolex President watch fling off his wrist.

William searched everywhere, and raked the clippings, but could not find the Rolex anywhere in the tangled brush. This watch had been a great timepiece for 35 years, and he wanted it back!

He searched for “metal detector rentals” and found The Ring Finders. I was able to meet him that afternoon at his home. When he showed me the site, I understood how difficult it would be to find the ring: the area was uneven, heavily overgrown, and covered in Poison Oak!

I started at the end of the search zone furthest from the Poison Oak. No luck. So I worked my way back toward the center of the zone. I found a few large targets like chewing tobacco tins and crushed aluminum cans, but no watch.

Finally I got a large hit along a steep area covered with brush. I couldn’t see anything, so I used my pinpointer to push away some branches. Was that a crinkled gold foil candy wrapper? Nope, it was a watchband, attached to a pristine Rolex watch without a scratch.

Thank you William for inviting me to your home to recover your watch!

Found: Lost Sweet Sixteen Watch on San Francisco Beach

from San Francisco (California, United States)
Contact: 1-408-256-3796

Abbey and her friends enjoyed Baker Beach in San Francisco until after dark last Wednesday night. Then she discovered her Cartier watch, a Sweet Sixteen gift from her parents, was missing. The whole group used their cell phones as flashlights, but they couldn’t find it.

We met Abbey at the beach this afternoon. She and her friend Madeline had already marked where they thought the blanket had been. They did a good job-it took us less than 20 minutes to find the watch, about ten feet away. Check out the YouTube video-Abbey was pretty happy!

P.S. That’s the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. See the next posting-we also recovered a missing platinum ring in Marin County on the other side of the bridge today-that’s two big recoveries in one day.

See the comments for Abbey’s follow-up note.

Lost Watch, Spanish Banks Beach…Found!

from Vancouver (British Columbia, Canada)
Contact: (778) 838-3463

I received a call from a young lady at around 6 pm on a Thursday, she tells me that she had lost a watch and that it could be in a couple of areas on the beach where she was playing volleyball and Frisbee.

I was still at work and working until 10 pm so I explained that I could come out after work and meet her to look for the watch.

She was a little skeptical that I could find her watch at night, I assured her that it didn’t mater if it was day or night, if we waited to long to search for her watch, the beach machine that cleans the beach could scoop it up and it would be lost forever.

I meet Kailun at 11 pm and she was with her parents, she walked me out and showed me the area that the watch could be lost at…I knew that it would take a bit of time to do a grid search so I told her that she could go home and that I would call her in the morning to let her know if I found the watch or not.

When the person doesn’t know where the item came off it becomes a treasure hunt! I know that its out there… but where?

I started my search at the volleyball court but nothing, I then started my grid search in the area she and her friends were playing Frisbee, after almost an complete north/south grid and close to an hour and a half I was only a few more lines from the end of the grid area when I got a good loud signal… It was the watch!

I have to say I was very happy I found the watch as I was getting really tired, I’m not sure if I would’ve been able to do the east/west grid.

I called the young lady and told her the good news the next morning…

I love my job!
