It also contained a Cartier Ladybird coral red and black diamond brooch, several Scottish silver and gold agate brooches, a Rolex Prince watch, an IWC Schaffhausen watch, a Rolex silver hunter watch, an Omega Olympic pocket watch, a Lemania chronograph pocket watch and a number of Israeli commemorative coins.

Didn't they have an alarm?
It seems not as no neighbours were alerted only 2 men seen in the area.

People that buy a safe but don't bolt it down have basically put all their valuables in a handy takeaway box.
