Richard Mille manufactures some of the most exotic and expensive timepieces in the world! Unfortunately, It was just reported that twenty Richard Mille watches were stolen on Sunday evening, June 26, 2016 in Paris, near the Place de la Madeleine.
Burglars broke into a deposit of Richard Mille watches. According to information gathered by Europe 1, the perpetrators left with two safes containing twenty watches in total. The estimate of overall damage is between 1.6 million and 2.4 million Euros.
Richard Mille is not my favorite brand by any means but this has become one of the most opulent and sought after watch brands in celebrity and high net worth circles for whatever reasons.
To date this marks the fourth robbery for luxury goods in Paris within a couple of months.The Chanel boutique was robbed twice within three weeks by armed men in April and in May. Both times, the attackers fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of luxury goods. In March of this year, armed robbers targeted Chopard’s flagship boutique on the Place Vendome and were also able to flee with their loot.
I really hope that security gets heightened and this is the end of a bad string of high end robbery’s in Paris.
