The hunt is on to find two robbers who stole a £4,000 Cartier watch from a motorist in Kilburn.

The 44-year-old victim was sitting in his black Audi A3 on Winchester Avenue, waiting for a recovery vehicle as he had a punctured tyre, when the pair approached him.

They tried to make small talk with him before one leant through the driver’s window and snatched his £5,000 Cartier Santos 100 watch.

They fled in the direction of Salusbury Road.

The suspects were both black men, one aged around 18 and the other in his early to mid 20s.

Anyone who has information about the robbery which took place on April 14 at 7.10pm or knows of the timepiece’s whereabouts should call Brent Police on 1010.

Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
