A watch engraved to commemorate the original moon landings has been stolen.
Police investigating a theft from a house in Stevenage have released details of the watch stolen in an attempt to trace it and those responsible for taking it.
It is not known exactly when the watch was stolen but it is believed to have happened sometime between Thursday January 16 and Sunday February 16 when the watch was found to be missing at around 6.30pm. It was taken from an address in Livingstone Link.
The silver Omega man’s wristwatch was made around 1970 to commemorate the moon landing. It is engraved on the rear casing with the names of the astronauts who landed on the moon, Neil Armstrong and Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin, and the phrase: ‘The first watch on the moon’.
PC Steve Beard is investigating the incident and said: “This is watch was given to the victim by their father, who has now passed away, and is obviously of huge sentimental value.

“As it is very distinctive and of limited edition I am asking anyone who knows of the watch’s location, or has been offered a watch of this description for sale, to contact me immediately.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Beard via Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number 101, citing crime reference E1/14/1265. Alternatively call Crimestoppers, the independent charity, anonymously on 0800 555 111.
