File a police report with the NYPD at the airport for the stolen watch. You should have the serial number and they will follow it up. Homeland Security personnel at the airport have been sucessfully prosecuted before and are caught all the time. To just throw up your hands and say you can't prove it and walk away is foolish.
I never remove my luxury watches or any watches when I go through security as the chance of them getting sifted when in a bag is a lot higher than if it were on my person
I’ve been in Italy the last 2+ weeks and my watches are safely locked away at home. Sure, I wish I was wearing my Rolex and it sucks that I feel it’s not worth taking the risk. You were probably in a rush but I would have went straight to the highest up you could find. Thief’s are very clever so it may not have been the security person as unlikey as it sounds.
Agree with those who don't take them off. One time TSA asked to see it, but i left it on my wrist and he just patted it down. Said nice watch, and sent me on my way.
I always keep my watch on. But you should file a police report and have them check the cameras

You don't have to remove your watch when going through security.

The keeping the watch on advice is great. Thank you. I never thought that could happen given you have to darn near strip to get through TSA. I travel little any longer just because of TSA combined with the airlines putting us all in a sardine can and cramming us together.
