CHELSEA — A woman stole a pair of pricey designer watches, $2,500 in cash and a credit card from a man after meeting him at the West 17th Street nightclub 1Oak, the NYPD said.

The 32-year-old victim told police he met the woman at the popular club, at 453 W. 17th St. near 10th Avenue, on Monday evening and returned to his Midtown East apartment with her.

When he woke up around 7 a.m. the next morning, he discovered she’d fled the apartment with his $12,000 Rolex watch, his $30,000 Gérald Genta watch, his credit card, and $2,500 in cash, the NYPD said.

The woman hadn’t been arrested as of Wednesday, police said.

The theft happened less than a week after police released surveillance footage of a woman accused of stealing $70,000 worth of jewelry from a man — including a Rolex watch — after meeting him at 1Oak at the beginning of June.

The 32-year-old victim of the most recent theft told the New York Post he didn’t think the woman who robbed him looked like the woman in the June surveillance footage.

The recent thefts are just two of many incidents during which nightclub-goers have been targeted for their expensive watches.
