Burglars gained entry to the unit in Croydon Road after by cutting through a metal wall, before stealing 500 Krug Baumen watches.
Police said the burglary on June 14 was committed in a "professional and organised" manner, and the business had been specifically targeted.
The Krug Baumen watches, which are of varying styles and values, are unique to the warehouse and are not on the market through any other retailer.
Police believe the watches may now be offloaded in both Sutton and Croydon, and are asking anyone who sees them being sold to report it to police.
Detective constable Charlie Lourenco, of Sutton’s burglary and robbery investigation team, said: "There have been a number of crimes committed against the company over the past few years and despite increased security and even moving premises, the business appears to be being specifically targeted."
Any sightings of these watches should be reported on 020 8649 0777, or via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
