Nick Hewer has revealed his designer wristwatch has been stolen by a so called 'tourist' who asked to take a photograph of him.
The 70-year-old Countdown host and The Apprentice advisor's watch is said to be worth about £10,000 and was created by the International Watch Company, which is also known as the IWC.
Nick wrote on Twitter: "NEVER agree to take photo of stranger with their camera phone. They'll steal your watch so fast when you hand phone back. Anyone seen my IWC?"
The presenter of the Channel 4 quiz show was apparently asked to take a photo of a 'tourist' - only to discover afterwards they had stolen his watch.
A spokesman for Nick confirmed that he had reported the incident to police.
