A 53-year-old former Gurkha soldier was targeted for his Rolex timepiece as he walked to work in Aylesbury in Kent last month.
The man had been en route to the Royal British Legion Village in the town when he was punched in the face by two young men, who then stole his Rolex. The watch is described a silver coloured timepiece with a blue dial.
According to Kent Police he suffered a cut and a bump to the head as a result of the incident which took place on East Park Road.
Kent Police are now appealing for witnesses to help track down the attackers, who are both described as white men, aged between 15 and 25.
One of the men is 5ft 6in, of stocky build and wearing dark clothing and a hooded jumper, whilst the other is 5ft 8in tall, of slim build and wearing a grey-hooded jumper and dark tracksuit bottoms.
