Kissimmee (US): A Florida thief with a peculiar penchant for Rolex watches faces up to 25 years in prison.

Leonardo Perez has pleaded guilty to charges he stole eight gold Rolex Presidential edition watches, each worth USD 50,000, over four months in 2007. The crime spree began just after Perez finished a 17-year sentence for stealing Rolexes in South Florida.

The 36-year-old Miami native is so loyal he even has the Rolex logo tattooed on a forearm, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

He primarily found victims out shopping, followed them home and robbed them at gunpoint, the newspaper said.
