On Friday (03.01) T H Bakers jewellers called 999 after an unknown male ran out with a Rolex worth £33,000. Sussex Police are appealing for any information on the man and his whereabouts.
The suspect was caught on CCTV and has been described as white, in his mid-30s. He was wearing a navy flat cap, blue puffer jacket with a checkered shirt underneath, blue chinos and brown shoes.
The watch was stolen after the male pretended he wanted to see the watch and spoke about payments before running out the store with it in his hand. The watch itself is quite distinctive and has the serial number 101Z916 on the rear plate. The male has left the box and original paperwork behind so now not as valuable as it would have been as a complete set.
Sussex Police is appealing to anyone who may be able to identify the man pictured or has seen the watch pictured for sale to call 101 quoting serial 845 of 03/01.
