Arnold Schwarzenegger Detained Over Luxury Fake Audemars Piguet Watch At Munich Airport

Watch-related news spread across the Internet today as movie star and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was held by customs officials at the Munich airport over what is purported to be an undeclared perfect replica Audemars Piguet wristwatch. According to reporting by CBS News, Schwarzenegger was en route to Austria, where his climate charity, the Schwarzenegger Climate Initiative, was hosting an auction at the Austrian World Summit. The watch – apparently a unique 1:1 fake Audemars Piguet made specifically for the Arnold – was set to be auctioned off there.
