£18,000 Watch Stolen In Raid

Police are looking for two men who stole an £18,000 Rolex watch from the window of a jewellers.

It happened in Duncanson & Edwards at the junction of Queen Street and Frederick Street in Edinburgh at around 4.40pm yesterday.

Staff were inside when the robbers smashed a front display window and grabbed the white gold Rolex Yacht-Master II, said to be worth £18,000.

The men were last seen running from the scene towards Queen Street Gardens West.

Staff in the shop were uninjured but were left shaken, police said.

Both suspects are white, in their mid to late 20s, between 5ft 10in and 6ft 2in with slim builds. The first man was wearing dark cotton tracksuit bottoms, a dark jacket and a dark beanie hat with a white motif. He had a dark rucksack on his back.

The second man had a dark beard and was wearing dark cotton tracksuit bottoms and a hooded jumper.

Officers are appealing for any witnesses.

Detective Inspector Grant Johnston said: "This was a brazen daylight break-in that left staff shaken. I am looking to speak to members of the public who were in the area around the time of this incident and saw the two men or saw anything they believe was connected to the incident.

"I would ask anyone with information to contact police immediately on 101."
