F1 Superstar Charles Leclerc's $320k Richard Mille Watch Stolen, Investigation Underway

12:13 PM PTTMZ Sports has confirmed Leclerc’s watch was stolen while out in Viareggio … and an investigation is underway.

Formula 1 superstar Charles Leclerc reportedly had his $320,000 Richard Mille watch snatched right from his wrist during a photo op with fans in Italy … but thankfully, the driver was allegedly unharmed.

Leclerc — who’s off to an incredible 2022 for Ferrari and sitting atop the driver standings — was with his friends and trainer, Andrea Ferrari, in Viareggio on Monday when the incident happened, according to the report.

Motorsport.com says the 24-year-old was walking around Via Salvatori at 10 PM when he was recognized by fans, who asked for a pic.

After posing for a shot with the group, Leclerc realized his watch was taken … and reported it to police.

Andrea went to social media shortly after the alleged theft to complain about the area being poorly lit … calling for the street lamps to get fixed.

Of course, Leclerc has had a partnership with RM for years … and even has his own signature watch. On top of that, Richard Mille became an official sponsor for Leclerc’s Ferrari team … so it won’t be too hard to get a replacement.

Leclerc is in Italy for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix … which is set to go down on Sunday.

Scary situation … but the guy was back to meeting with fans just hours later — posing for pics, although it’s unclear if he was wearing any extra jewelry.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

We’ve reached out to Ferrari for comment … so far, no word back.
