I posted this thread originally in the dive forum but decided that this is probably the place it should be.
I am travelling to South Africa (Cape Town) in 3 weeks for a holiday to visit relatives. I have been spending too much time thinking about which watch to wear for the trip. I know this topic has been covered previously on WUS, but given the impression that SA isn't the safest place on earth, should I take more than one watch with me?
I was looking at maybe taking 2 for the trip. A "relatively expensive name brand" for the actual plane travel and going out to dinner etc, and a "cheaper less obvious" item for general day to day sight seeing duties. I was going to take my Artego as the general duties victim, as I figured the white dial and rubber strap wouldn't let it be mistaken as a "top-shelf" item to would be thieves.
This leaves me with the dilemma of deciding whether to take another for more "restricted" activities, probably one of my TAG Heuer's. Even though they are both covered by insurance, would it be worth the risk? Anyone here travelled to SA recently? I have queried my relatives on this obviously, but I feel that since they have lived there so long and love the place, their opinion may be jaded somewhat. Cheers.
