A LC1048 watch worth £500, which was made by watchmaker Maurice Lacroix and is no longer made, was taken after a rear stable door of the house on Hurst Lane, Hindlip was forced open between 7.45am and 5.45pm on Friday, August 23.
Other items stolen included a laptop computer, a £10 gift voucher and a bottle of champagne worth £50.
