A WATCH COLLECTOR is offering €2,000 for information leading to the return of 50 luxury and vintage watches that were stolen from his home in Javea.

Thieves broke in to the German man’s home on the Montgo on December 29, 2015.

They stole a collection of 50 luxury and vintage watches, including pieces by Rolex, Patek Philippe, Vacheron Constantin, Clycine, Ernest Borel, Eterna, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Chopard, Movado and Piaget.

The collector had amassed the impressive collection – valued at over €70,000 – over many years, the oldest model being a Brietling from 1943.

The watches were taken from a safe inside a wardrobe. It is thought that the thieves had been watching the house as they seemed to know exactly where to find the valuables.

The collector reported the incident to the police straight away and provided photographs and serial numbers for all the missing models.

However, he remains convinced that the watches are still in Javea as the thieves would expose themselves if they tried to sell them on.

If you or anyone you know has any information that could let to the recovery of the timepieces, get in touch with the Guardia Civil in Javea.
