    HOW TO BEST CONCEAL YOUR LATEST PURCHASE FROM THE WIFE

    In this Christmas season, methinks it's only proper to help each other out with some tips on how to best secure our own little private gifts.

    1. The Sock Drawer.
    PROS - you know that pair you never wear, they just sit there through the ages, - slip away that new vintage Rolex or Omega in there for safe-keeping.
    CONS - One day she throws away your old socks.

    2. Safe Deposit Box.
    PROS - you can load that bad boy up to the brim, plenty of room for new stock!
    CONS - One day she sees your bill for Safe Deposit Box, demands to know what is in it.

    3. Broiler portion of the Stove.
    PROS - she never actually uses the stove for anything, this is a seemingly the perfect place.
    CONS - One day the heating system dies and she ignites the stove to keep herself and Pookie the dog warm.

    I'm sure others can contribute but whatever your course of action - best of luck!

    Cheers, Edwoods.

    Hide it in plain sight ... on your wrist.

    This honestly is the best way to do it. With a straight face whenever she asks, just sigh and say, "You've seen this watch a million times. Sheesh."

    I leave most of mine in the trunk under the spare and a few at a friend's house.
    If you never believe in anything, you'll never be disappointed.

    I may or may not have vouched for my friend that I had bought a watch in the city he lived in (NYC) and he was holding it for me until I saw him next time when I visited NYC...

    My girlfriend doesn't care if I buy new watches. She actually wanted to buy me a Rolex (to replace my old one), imagine that!
    But as a tip for you guys, how about put your timepieces in a small carton box, and place it in a tool box or carton labeled "oil" or "car parts/stuff." Or cut out one of your big boring mechanic/science/guy book and put them inside.

    Of course when she asked, I usually replied I had the watch for a while now (like 2 days ago).
