The theft happened at Goldsmiths on Linthorpe Road.

Cleveland Police say a man, in his early 20's, walked into the shop and requested to try on a Rolex watch.

He then managed to avoid the staff in the store and left wearing the expensive watch.

Police are asking anyone who has been offered the Rolex watch for sale, or who may know the whereabouts of the watch, to contact them.
