Detectives are looking for two men who stole a package containing an expensive watch from a residential building in Midtown, police said.

The two men entered the building at 7 Park Ave., at East 34th Street, and told the doorman they were employees of a man in the building and were there to pick up a package, according to officials.

They obtained the package, which had a Ulysse Nardin watch valued at over $5,000, then fled in an unknown direction. Police said the thieves did not know the victim, a 48-year-old man.
