Watches recovered from the debris of the World Trade Center Disaster.
Families of victims killed in the September 11, 2001, World Trade Center attacks will be able to claim jewelry belonging to them under a new system unveiled by police December 3, 2004. Police will match their own data with claimants' detailed descriptions of items including wedding rings, bracelets and watches to be registered on a new Web site. Jewelry experts from Tiffany and Co. and gemologists were consulted to create a fraud-proof system that took over a year to complete. Watches recovered from the debris of the World Trade Center Disaster are assembled in an evidence decontamination room at the Fresh Kills landfill on the Staten Island section of New York City in this January 14, 2002 file photo.
