Information is being sought by Kent Police officers who are investigating a report of an aggravated burglary at an Ashford home.

It was reported that between 8pm and 11.50pm on Wednesday 6 March 2019, two men entered a property in Westwell, and although the victim, a man in his 70s, was not injured, threats to use kitchen knives from the property to harm him were made if he tried to raise the alarm.

As well as the watches a number of designer handbags and  jewellery was stolen.

The seven watches have been described as follows:

A stainless steel Breitling for Bentley watch with a black face; a stainless steel Frank Muller King Conquistador watch with a red face; a black steel chronograph Uboat watch; a stainless steel Panerai, a stainless steel chrome Rolex Daytona featuring a white face; a Cartier Ballon Bleu watch with a stainless steel and gold strap with a diamond bezel; and a IWC perpetual calendar big pilot featuring a rose gold case with a brown leather strap.

The first man was described as a slim white man, 6ft tall, and dressed in black with ski mask covering his face.

The second man was also a slim white man, around 6ft tall. He had dark brown eyes, and also wore black clothing.

Both spoke with eastern European accents.

Anyone who has information is asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/43263/19.

In particular police are interested if anyone saw a white van in or around the area at the time.
