The items were made by luxury brands like Tag Heuer, Cartier, Omega, Bulgari and Patek Philippe.
Notts Police have not released the value of the haul but said the stolen items were worth a considerable amount of money.
Police believe the theft was targeted as nothing else in the van was stolen.
PC Stephen Craner, who is leading the investigation, said: "The items are very distinctive and of high value, so I believe they knew what was inside and what they were looking for.
"Someone gained entry into the van at a busy time of the day as it was parked in the street.
"I'm confident someone will have seen something that could help our investigation."
Anyone with information should contact Notts Police on 101.
