    Question How many watches do you bring on holiday?

    I'm leaving Sunday for a 2 week holiday.
    I own close to 20 watches now, and I got myself a nice watch roll to bring a few watches.
    I think I will bring 5 watches for this 2 week holiday, 2 extra straps and 2 watch tools. But I'm scared to lose/damage the watches.

    This is my setup for now:




    Please let me know how many watches you would bring on a 2 week holiday.


    Thanks in advance ;)



    Edit, for people who dont feel like reading through the entire thread, this is what I've decided to bring:

    Re: How many watches do you bring on holiday?

    Last time I went on a two week holiday I brought two. My beater digital (to beat) and my Timex (to beat and then go to a semi-formal thing later). We were mainly sightseeing in a very humid and hot area with a LOT of opportunity to damage the watches, so I did not really care to bring anything fancy. Plus I didn't want to wear anything to mark me as having money. So I guess it would depend on where I'm going. The next place I'm going is Seattle. I'm probably going to bring my Hamilton and Longines for that one, as that I have some formal things to do. But at the most I will bring 3.
    Current Collection - | Ball | Bvlgari | Casio | Citizen | Credor | Girard-Perregaux | Graham | Gübelin | Hamilton | Jaeger-LeCoultre | Longines | Minase | Mühle Glashütte | NOMOS Glashütte | Omega | Rolex | Seiko | Swatch | Undone | Vacheron Constantin | Victorinox Swiss Army |

    I usually carry around 3 watches in a carry case. If I'm only away for a weekend it will be less. I never take more then 3 because in life any thing can happen such as your watches being stolen.

    Thanks for your reply. I'm just visiting a few cities, so I will most likely not bring anything too fancy. I will stick with 3 I guess.


    Thank you sir, I didnt see that poll :)

    Thats indeed where I'm most scared about. Thanks for the reply, I think I will go with 2 in the roll, and one on the wrist.

    Just got back Sunday from a two week holiday in France & Spain. I always bring only one watch - Of low value so I'm not upset if I lose it or it gets stolen. I wore my Zodiac Sea Dragon chrono:

    Multiple straps? Or just one strap, one watch?
    It will obviously be the smart choice just to bring one, but I just like to have a few watches with me.

    Nice. I'm sort of a light traveler though, so its the watch on my wrist - unless there's a formal dress-up occasion in which case I bring a dress watch my reading glass case.

    My gf though.. the accessories she brings along you would think she was setting up a sidewalk store and selling them!

    OT.. I broke a rib once carrying her luggage

    Whenever I go away, be it for 2 days or 2 weeks, I take 2 watches with me. The rest of the boys stay at home.
