A man stole a watch from a jewelry store near San Francisco’s Union Square on Sunday afternoon, police said. Around 1:45 p.m., a man in his 30s entered a store near the corner of Grant Avenue and Post Street, said he was shopping for his fiancee and asked to see several rings, according to police. He claimed he was a record producer and said he also wanted to look at watches.

A saleswoman showed him a watch, and he said he needed one with more “bling,” according to police. The saleswoman then gave him a watch with a diamond face and a platinum bezel to look at. He put the watch on his wrist and looked at it in a mirror, police said. When the employee asked for the watch back, the man ran out of the store with the watch still on, according to police. Shreve and Co. is located at that corner, but an employee there declined to comment on the robbery today.
