Charlie Sheen discovered his Patek Philippe watch was missing and tore apart his hotel room at the Plaza Hotel in New York City. A known watch collector with millions of dollars worth of watches, Charlie Sheen was lividly trying to locate his hard-to-get Patek Philippe
Ref. 5970 watch. Collectors love the classic high-end Patek with a chronograph, perpetual calendar, and moon phase indicator. It is worth well over $100,000.
The media calls it a "Sheen Meltdown," but he was really just looking for his timepiece that went missing on October 28th. The story goes deeper, though. Sheen blamed his "date" that night Capri Anderson for taking the watch. The two apparently met earlier in the night and ended up back at Sheen's hotel room where things got a bit out of control. Drugs and alcohol are obviously implicated - and Capri is said to have quickly become afraid of the 45 year old actor before locking herself into a bathroom. Forget the girl, at this point Charlie couldn't find the watch. Later taken to a hospital, Sheen's Patek was still on the loose. Does the porn star have it? The bell hop? Someone else? Sources are unclear about the events that led Anderson to Sheen's hotel room, and there have been suggestions that he was back to his old ways of paying for sex. Let's just hope that Sheen didn't inadvertently hock the watch at a pawn shop to pay for Capri's "fee."
Despite the media fiasco, I just feel bad for Charlie. When you are a watch lover, and have a timepiece that rare, you'd scour the earth to get it back if lost.
