    What do you do to protect your watches?

    Hi guys,

    I've been thinking about getting some kind of safe though i'm not too sure what kind i need/should go for.I have a tidy little watch box I can move around.

    What do you do?

    I try not to bump into things, but that's about it. I find it too tiring to baby my watches.

    Inside a Pelican 1495 case that then goes into a big-ass gun safe that also doubles as my two Pit Bulls bedroom when I am gone.


    Probably overkill, but I sleep better at night....

    Get a safe,preferably the big and heavy ones,and put your watches inside one of the locked drawer

    Other alternative will be to put the watches elsewhere,since most people/thieves will just try to crack the safe (kinda like reverse psychology...)

    My collection lives either on my wrist or in a big safe that is bolted to the floor and wall. Have a look at the Securikey 2 with electronic lock.

    Well,usually I use Chubb safe,I think it's from Germany,it has the glass thing inside,so if someone try to break into it and crack the glass,the safe will go into lockdown and it can only be opened by the technician so make sure there's a local distributor
    Another thing,changing the combination does not require a degree in rocket science...

    They're housed in a Pelican Case that's stored a few feet away from the ax leaning against my desk.
