Archant

A valuable watch was stolen from an Ipswich home between Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

The Franck Muller ‘Cortez 10000 H SC Conquistador’ went missing from within a property in Brettenham Crescent.

The watch is encased with diamonds and has a black face with white numbers and a Case No. 1932.

It is valued in the region of £25,000.

A Suffolk Constabulary spokeswoman said the watch was not a Christmas present.

If you have seen the watch or know its whereabouts contact Pc Luke Burgin on 101 quoting crime reference 37/23319/15.

  • I believe the £25,000 value is a bit high here. Just found an exact same model (inc diamonds) online with an earlier case number for £13500, this includes the paperwork too. As for the face, this is the style they are, take it or leave it

  • Rather ironic that the watch is worth more than their home. The diamonds are nice but the clock face looks really cheap and tacky, just goes to show you cannot buy taste. You would have thought if you could afford such an expensive watch that you could also afford a sub-50 pound safe to store it in and a sub-200 pound CCTV system to protect your home. I just hope they have had it insured, wouldn't hold my breath though!
