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?

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...

I'm not a big fan of safes, especially those large and in your face types of safes that any burglar worth his salt knows holds something/s expensive. When he realizes that he doesn't have the skills-set to enter that cracker jacks box his next thought might be to wait for the owner or the owners wife to come home and ask politely for the combination. Or he might decide to come back at a later date and pay the owner of the safe a visit. It just seems to me that a large safe in a house is the wrong kind of advertising but that's only my opinion.

If you need to worry about that, then your first order of business should be to MOVE.

I can't put my wife in kids in a safe, Pelikan Case, or within 100 yards of a Pit Bull so why would I leave them unprotected but protect a bunch of watches?????

Seriously, I leave my watches on a shelf in my closet, the wife leaves her stuff in a jewelery box. Never been robbed.

+1 Though I have a couple of pieces that would be hard to replace they aren't Comex Subs etc. We have a couple of Rhodesian Ridgebacks that don't take kindly to people coming in the door unescorted by a member of our family which would keep the opportunistic thieves out but a professional thief will more than likely spirit away most anything he or she wants. We have a 12 cubic foot safe but use it mainly for documents more for a fire than anything. Most gun safes that will accommodate long guns can be cracked or broken pretty quickly by real professionals. In the end I wouldn't rotate my watches and enjoy them nearly as much if they were behind a safe door.
