Brent Police are appealing for information to trace the whereabouts of a £40,000 Patek Philippe watch stolen during a burglary in Kilburn.
The valuable heirloom, which has huge sentimental value to its owner, was stolen during the break-in at the house in Christchurch Avenue yesterday morning.
The thieves also made off with an iPad, a laptop, a pair of black Asprey diamond encrusted cufflinks and a collection of coins after breaking into the property through the front door between 9.15am and 11.15am.
The victim, a man aged in his 30s, said: “This was my grandfather’s watch passed down to me though the generations from my late mother, who herself passed away in 2011.
“It holds massive sentimental value and is irreplaceable. I was simply holding it for my son when it was his time to take possession. Whoever has it, please return it.”
