Police are still looking for the owner of a diamond-encrusted gold ladies’ Rolex watch which they believe was stolen in the South West.

Officers from Zephyr, the region’s serious and organised crime fighting team, recovered the high value item earlier this year after a warrant in Bristol.

The Rolex watch has a black face with a serial number on the reverse and extra diamonds have been added to the strap and the watch face.

Police say further enquiries have revealed it was purchased outside of the UK.

Two other items were also recovered, a pair of 18ct gold diamond rings with claw settings.

Officers believe they may have been stolen during distraction burglaries or crimes against vulnerable victims in the South West.

Anyone with any information as to who owns these items or the owners themselves should contact police on 101.
