Police are hunting for five men wanted for a brazen smash-and-grab heist at a Midtown jewelry store on Thursday.

Investigators say the men walked into the Cartier store at Fifth Avenue and 52nd Street around 12:30 p.m.

Three of the men were carrying hammers, which they used to smash a glass case.

The NYPD says the men took off with 16 watches valued at about $700,000.

Police are looking at security footage from the store to try to identify the robbers.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
