Charles at A1K9 has recently had the pleasure of being invited to meet Paul Thorpe, an admired former watch dealer, now retired, having been in the watch business since 1975. He now concentrates on his role as a luxury watch expert & advisor and operates a well-subscribed YouTube channel. He uses his channel to pass on some of the extensive knowledge he has gained as one of the most well-known watch dealers in the UK and Europe.

Unfortunately, Paul has himself previously been the target of several distressing robberies. Due to the big increase in high-value watch thefts, robberies, and burglaries, Paul decided to interview Charles - A1K9’s founder. The interview was the latest in a series of spotlights from Paul, focusing on protection and safety both in terms of your home, assets, and family. Together, Paul and Charles discuss the particulars of what an A1K9 protection dog can offer, as well as highlighting how they can help in traumatic situations such as home invasion, street thefts, etc.
