Officers investigating a burglary in Watford have released an image of a distinctive watch that was stolen.

The incident happened in Kingswood Road between 10.45am on Thursday, November 9 and 11.50am on Sunday, November 12.

Between these times, offender(s) have gained entry to the rear garden before smashing the patio doors and conducting a search of the upstairs’ bedrooms.

They took a large amount of gold jewellery, including:

  • A 9ct gold cufflinks entwined and engraved with ‘D.R.M’

PC Lewis Mortimer, from the Watford Local Crime Unit, said: “We are doing everything we can to trace those responsible for this burglary that has left the victims devastated, as the items taken were of huge sentimental value. I am urging people to think about whether they may have seen items matching the description available for sale in an antique shop, or perhaps online.
