Witness appeal following Derby watch theft

Posted on 8th November 2018

Do you recognise these men? Officers would like to speak to them in connection with the theft of a high-value watch from a Derby jeweller.

At around 4pm on Wednesday November 7, two men entered the jeweller’s shop in the Cornmarket and asked to look at a watch. One of the men tried the watch on, and then the pair ran from the shop with the watch in their possession.

Both men are described as being of thin build and around 5ft 6ins tall, with short dark hair. Both are described as being well-groomed and wearing blue jeans and dark coloured shoes. One was wearing a dark-coloured jacket and one in a burgundy jacket.

The watch (pictured) is a limited edition Omega Museum watch.

We would like to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident, has any CCTV or who recognises the two men pictured.

We would also like to hear from anyone who has been offered a similar watch for sale, including any pawnbrokers in the area.
