Tourist stole his £7,500 Rolex while drying his wrist

A TOURIST has had his £7,500 watch stolen at a museum after taking it off to dry his ‘sweaty wrist’.

Jaz Pabla was out sightseeing when his Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner, with a stainless steel bracelet and case, was stolen.

He was on the first floor of the University of Oxford’s Natural History Museum when he took off his watch around 1pm because his wrist was sweating from the “brisk walk” to the venue.

“I put it on one of the display counters while my wrist dried,” he said. “At that moment my friend distracted me to look at a bird on one of the display counters and I went over to have a look.

“About 15 minutes later I noticed the watch wasn’t on my wrist and I went back to the counter but it was gone.

“It was not delivered to the reception of the house and CCTV did not cover this area.”

Mr Pabla – who lives near Kings Langley in Hertfordshire – is now offering a “significant reward” for the watch

He says it is a “highly prized object with sentimental value.”

“It was a day of sightseeing that quickly turned into a very disappointing day,” he said.
