I usually just take one beater or semi-beater watch. I used to take my swiss army quartz but it finally died after 10-12 years, so I'll have to use something else, probably my TSAR

If you plan on taking multiple watches I'd suggest a pelican or storm case in your carry on (if your flying). I'm going to be transferring to a college out of state in a few month and that's how I plan to transport them if I bring all or some of my watches (haven't decided yet).

I bring along 2. Depends where I go.

To Berlin I took my Stowa Airman, and Stowa Antea. (Taking them home....)

To Caracas a Sturmanskie Civil and white Vostok Radio Room. (Not a smart place to wear a Rolex...)

:) The responses are interesting so far...

Before I 'got into' watches, the idea of taking more than one watch away with me would have seemed a bit bizarre. Now, however, I would struggle to leave home for anything longer than a week with just one watch....

I take one, and it is always a beater. I usually take a Vostok Amphibia. Then, when I buy something rare (hopefully a Strela!) I can put the Vostok in my backpack without thinking twice about it and leave it there for the rest of the trip.

....how many watches do you take with you, and how do you carry them?
If I go anywhere staying overnight it is on a horse trek. I don't even take a tent as not to burden the horse so ONE watch only. It usually is the Traser P5900 because it is an instinctive read day and night.
I would swap it on some trips for a rugged soviet with an instinctive dial and alarm if I would happen to find one.

I always take my trusty leather watch travel case (I think the brand is "MK." It holds two watches of any size. Each compartment has two elastic hold-down straps: one permanently attached on both ends and the other attached on one end and with a velcro fastener at the other end (to accomodate watches with bracelets). Of course, you wear a third watch. ;-)

Two fotos.

1. two day ´extreme´ trip:



Heartrate metre to monitor the exertion level of my horse. USELESS as a timepiece as it is hard to read and digital.

2. tree day trip:



No wallet, no mobile, no gps, no compass, no watch :-!

I usually take 4 watches (but I travel 3-4 weeks at a time).

I take the US Customs forms with me (if you are leaving the country with a watch that has a serial number, you can document that fact & save any possible hassles when you come back).

I got a nylon watch/knife case from MWR (smaller and less obvious than the leather cases I used to carry).

Domestic U.S. travel: Usually wear one quartz beater (Timex), take no more than 2 others, but never the really expensive ones.

International travel: Wear one quartz beater only and take no others, but hopeully find a good one to buy on the trip!
