There is a certain amount of sorrowful irony in taking off a watch that's waterproof to 1220 meters to go swimming, and having it stolen.
The police are asking that "if anyone knows of any person who has recently and inexplicably come into possession of the same type of watch" that they contact the police. I guess that "inexplicably" means somebody who used to only wear Omegas or Panerais.
Here's the report from the Toronto Police:
