  2. Collection Security - How to keep your watches secure in the UK

    Public Forum
    Hi I have a question for my fellow brits. How do you store your watches securely? I speak not of watch boxes, rolls and cases and such. I am talking about keeping them secure against theft. Now, for most on these forums who seem to be Americans, the stock answer is, "get a safety deposit...

    Looking to insure my Omega seamaster and putting it on house insurance is not an option. Having searched around I see the name T H March getting mentioned, any reviews from UK members?

  7. How to send watch from USA to Canada INSURED via USPS? Seems impossible.

    Public Forum
    I need to send a watch to Canada for repair. The watch is valued at $2,500.00, but when I check the USPS website the fine print for every single type of mailing specifically excludes watches and jewelry or limits the insurance amount. "Coins, jewelry, watches, and other valuables are prohibited...

    Public Forum
    Gang, is there a proper, easy way to send a watch movement from the United States to Canada? :rodekaart Seriously, I ask this after experiencing a rather bizarre run-in with the local post office here in small town North Carolina.

  9. At what price point should one purchase insurance on a watch?

    Public Forum
    I'm wondering at what value you should purchase insurance for your watch? When it's worth $2k? $5k? $10k? I have Chubb as my insurance provider, not sure if they cover watches without purchasing additional insurance. When do you believe it's appropriate to get insurance on your watch(s)?

  12. Do you insure your watch collection ?

    Public Forum
    Now that I have a nice little collection sitting in my desk drawer at home, I'm wandering if I should take out special insurance on it. When I added it all up, what's sitting in my desk drawer adds up to more than your average new car. Do you guys take out special insurance on your watch...
