"So, I just had to hide in a safe, or more like a vault downstairs. I was in there picking up this vintage piece that I’ve been waiting for, for ages and these guys drive a scooter through the glass and start battering the shop with hammers, with huge hammers, wearing helmets," Spencer recounted on Instagram.

He continued, "We’re in the back of the shop looking at them, sprint downstairs (and) hide in the vault until all the noise passes."

While most of the merchandise was taken and the shop was completely "gonzo" according to the British socialite, the watch he was there to buy was surprisingly left behind.

"Amongst all the rubble and all the glass and stuff there’s one watch in the entire shop and it’s mine. Now, if that’s not luck, I don’t know what is!” he said in astonishment.
