    Wear Doxa to Jaco Costa Rica?

    I'm leaving tomorrow. I dont know whether its a good idea to wear my 1000 pro or my Yao Seiko on a Nato. Rolex is staying home and I only want to bring one. It is a bit sketchy in Jaco at times.

    Just a guess, but to 99.9% of the people the Seiko and Doxa would be equal. I would wear mine.

    I'm presuming your concern is becoming a victim of crime, or more specifically making yourself a target?

    While I know nothing of your destination, I'll just say that there are no guarantees anywhere. But one of the keys to not becoming a victim is how you carry yourself. If you walk around with your head in the clouds, unaware of your surroundings, you increase the likelihood you'll be targeted (you are a more attractive target if not paying attention).

    If on the other hand, you obviously are aware of what is going on around you, who is approaching you, keeping an eye open for potential choke points/traps and escape routes, you greatly decrease your chances of becoming and desirability as a target.

    I'd wear whatever watch I felt like wearing, realizing I can limit, but not eliminate totally, the chance of it's loss (whether by a burglar in my home while gone, or off my wrist while on vacation). You bought it to enjoy. So enjoy it!
    Regards, T Bone.

    When I travel by plane I always wear one of my replaceable Seiko divers, just in case it gets lost during the confusion at the security check.
    I don't have grandkids yet....so let me tell you about my watch!

    I've fixed this. I now travel with items to make security checkpoints easier. Nearing security screeners, I casually slip my watch into my backpack (carry on) or more likely my Timbuk2 laptop messenger bag/carry on. I also plan to pick up a ScotteVest travel vest or jacket soon (love their products), and can just slip it into one of around 20 pockets and put it through the machine that way.

    I've never liked putting it into the little trays, especially after I briefly thought I'd lost my Divingstar GMT going through security at Kuwait City. A man ahead of me had been eying my watch and departed in a hurry, and my tray was out of my sight for a moment. Last time I used one of those trays for my watch!

    I have now been through security at London Heathrow and Vancouver airports lots of time with my 750. Never had to take it off and it has never caused the detectors to sound and alarm. My suggestion is not to take it off unless ordered to by a bloke with a gun
