The above watch was stolen in a burglary over 12 years ago. Mr S C Embley has since died and the family would very much like it back. This watch is of great sentimental value to the family. If you have been offered this watch or have any information, please get in contact with me (John Baker) via my email address    info@austinmemories.com   The family don't care who's actually got it, and are willing to give a reward for the safe return.
