Hampshire Constabulary is asking for anyone with any information to come forward in identifying two people following a theft of a £25,000+ watch in Winchester.

The theft took place at the famous jewellers Carter Marsh & Co, in ‘The Square’, sometime between 1.45pm and 2.15pm on Friday 1st of March.

The pair entered the jewellers and asked the staff to see a watch, Patek Philippe, a famous and extravagant watch.

When they were told they couldn’t pay in cash, they left the store.

They later realised they had taken the watch without them paying the cost.

The pair were later seen to meet up with a group of people prior to them leaving in a silver Ford Galaxy and a grey Honda accord near Magdalen Hill.

The stolen object has been described as a Patek Philippe, 18-carat white gold watch with a blue crocodile strap.

The exact type of watch stolen in Winchester last week.

Hampshire Constabulary have released images of a man and woman. The Hampshire Constabulary are keen to speak to the pair following their investigation.

Perhaps you know where the watch is now, or have seen it offered for sale?

If you have any information, please contact us on 101, quoting reference number 44190073497.
