A HUNT has been launched for two men after a Rolex watch worth £36,250 was stolen from a Southampton shop.

Police say two men entered Laing Jewellers in the Westquay centre between 2.35pm and 3.10pm on Wednesday, November 29, and asked to see the watch.

One of the men then returned and asked to see the watch again before putting it on his wrist and running out of the store.

Officers have issued these CCTV images of men they want to speak to as part of the investigation.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said: "If you witnessed the incident or have been offered sale of a Rolex in suspicious circumstances, either as a member of the public or as a member of staff in a pawn shop, then please call us.

"If you have any information relating to this case, please call 101 quoting reference 44170464653, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously."
