Watch worth $370,000 goes missing from Rafael Nadal’s Paris hotel room

A Richard Mille watch worth an estimated $370,000 went missing from the Paris hotel room where Rafael Nadal was staying during the French Open, according to a Reuters report.

The watch, loaned to Nadal by Mille, was discovered missing by Nadal when he awoke on Tuesday morning, less than a day after Nadal wore it as he defeated Novak Djokovic on Monday for his seventh French Open title. A police source said, “Nobody broke into the hotel room.”

While Nadal undoubtedly has the cash flow to reimburse Mille for the extravagantly priced watch — if Mille would even expect repayment — I’m less concerned about how it turned up missing than I am the fact that Nadal wore a watch worth well over a quarter million dollars while playing in a match. That’s just asking for trouble. Crap, I wouldn’t wear that watch while checking the time, let alone playing tennis. Nope, I’ll stick with wearing my Swatch from junior high while playing sports, thank you very much.
