This is the moment police recovered a £65,000 designer watch just minutes after it was snatched in a violent street robbery.
The victim had left a nightclub in Birmingham city centre just before 4am on April 21 when a man approached him and demanded to talk.
As he tried to walk away, he was grabbed and pushed against a shop shutter while the robber called to his accomplices waiting nearby.
The gang repeatedly punched him in the head while another thug held his arms down and yanked his Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch off his wrist.
The robbers sped off in a black Mercedes people carrier after the robbery.
The victim dialled 999 and within minutes officers patrolling the city centre spotted the car.
The officers followed the vehicle for a short distance
