Top Quality Replica Richard Mille Watch Stolen… Then Found

We’ve previously reported on tennis superstar Rafael Nadal’s six-figure trophy timepiece, one of only 50 produced. Unfortunately that high quality Richard Mille replica watch was stolen from his locker during the 2010 Rogers Cup tournament in Toronto.

Nadal was wearing a second variant of this exclusive Richard Mille watch replica at Roland Garros Monday when he captured his seventh French Open. But that sweet moment quickly turned sour the next day when he found it missing from his hotel room.

According to Hodinkee, the police recovered the timepiece Wednesday and identified the alleged thief, the hotel barman, who apparently used his staff access card to enter Nadal’s room and steal the best fake Richard Mille watch.
