Lando Norris, a British-Belgian racing driver, had a rather bitter ending to the Eurocup finals. He attended the final game at Wembley, in London, as England played against Italy for the title. As if it wasn’t enough that England didn’t “bring it home”, it turns out someone else brought home Norris’ Richard Mille.
As we now know, Italy decided that the trophy was coming home to Rome. As the game ended, Norris left the stadium and was mugged on his way back to the (VIP) parking. The good news is that Norris is doing fine, and it appears that he has suffered no injuries. His team McLaren further added: “Thankfully, Lando was unharmed but he is understandably shaken… As this is now a police matter we cannot comment further”. Shaken, not stirred.
Reports in the media seem to indicate the value of the stolen watch sits around GBP 40,000. This is not quite consistent with the (much higher) value of the watch that is supposed to have been stolen. This particular RM 11-03 was released in 2018 and carried a price tag of $191,500 plus tax. Limited to 500 pieces worldwide, it features a skeletonized, automatic winding movement with variable-geometry rotor offering hours, minutes, seconds, flyback chronograph, 60-minute countdown timer at 9 o’clock, 12-hour totaliser, oversize date and month indicator.
