    En ce qui concerne la montre, la valeur est trop élevée je n’aurai jamais imaginé une montre à 690.000$. A ce même prix tu as un demi villa dans mon pays la RDC !!! mais pourquoi pas quand on est Raphaël Nadal, le big boss.
    et je penses que ça va marché entre nous deux puisque j’ai toujours eu moi aussi des idées ingéniées. Bonne chance Rafa.
