A man was stabbed in the knee by armed thieves in Kilburn who made off with his luxury Swiss watch worth an estimated £60,000.
The 46-year-old victim was in Palmerston Road at about 7.15pm on August 22 when he was set upon by three men who stole his silver Patek Philippe watch, which has a blue dial.
He attempted to fight off his attackers before being stabbed in the knee, police said.
The thieves then took his watch and fled on a moped.
The watch has a noticeable scratch on the glass and one new strap link.
Det Con Jess Bannister, from Central North CID, said: “We are appealing for anyone who may have recently bought a watch fitting the description of the one stolen to call police so that it can be returned to its rightful owner.”
