    I am sure he was targeted. I hope he has the serial number somewhere.

    I guess you don't have to be intelligent to be rich enough to afford such a watch.

    I try not to wear nice watches when I plan to go to the gym. Number one, you could damage with a shock by knocking it against a weight or machine & number two, if you're like me I don't wear a watch when working out, so I store it in my locker.

    So I try to wear watches I acquired for about $100 or less when going to the gym

    Acrylic's integrity degrades with time; if he was using the original highly-domed T39 crystal, it would have been unwise to take the watch in water.

    Generally, though, your wrist is the safest place to keep your watch. With a fresh crystal and seals, I'd trust a 1665 to its full depth rating.
    Unless you personally know if the watch was water resistant, saying it was not wise to take is swimming is a stretch. I've serviced many vintage watches that were so pitted they could not be made water resistant.

    Not taking it into the pool could have been the absolutely appropriate decision - leaving it in the locker, not so much...

    It doesn't say if his locker had a lock on it. I think I would have left it in my car.

    Wow, quite a bit of victim blaming here. I had my apartment broken into, and had a misfortune of having my locker (along with 10-20 others) broken into while at YMCA swimming. Leaving the watch at home would do nothing against home robbery. And when my waller and phone were taken from my locker - it sucked big time (watch and car keys were in the shoe so untouched). I often go to the gym or the pool after work, so wear whatever I was wearing in the office that day. And no - I would not swim in the pool w a nice diver watch - not because of WR, but because I swim laps and extra weight can be felt pretty quickly, plus I often workout before the pool and don't want free weights competing w a watch for steel strength.

    I feel bad for the guy and hope the watch was insured. The only a*holes and dumbasses here are the thieves who believe that they are entitled to other peoples property.

    I bet buying/wearing a G-Shock to the gym doesnt sound so stupid to him now.

    Has to do with the age and those pesky red letters.

    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    Friends don't let friends buy G-Schlocks.

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    Think this is bad? A few weeks ago an in-law of mine had his Lange & Sohne limited edition stolen from his locker while playing golf. 55k USD down the drain. Worst still, it wasn't insured. Common sense would dictate, if you intend to take off an expensive accessory, better leave it at home.

    A Seadweller should be able to dwell in the sea no matter what its age and I'm of the opinion that the owner should maintain the WR.
