    Security v Convenience

    I keep my best watches in a hidden safe.

    This means I wear them less than if they were in the bottom of my sock drawer Ö

    How do you balance the convenience of easy access with security?

    Maybe keep them in a more accessible but secure safe (place).

    I take out a watch box plus 1 at a time, and then have access to them. I rotate every 10-12 weeks, but around half of the box are usual suspects.
    It's just a matter of time...

    I wear each watch for about 6-8 weeks at a time so getting them out of the safe is no big deal.

    +1.....a sensible compromise! Lateral thinking is the key, combined with modest DIY skills.

    Deposit box and only one out at a time.

    Annoying but better than losing them.

    Iím thinking of a Dudley safe for about £500 and whilst I canít be fagged to have it bolted down it does weigh in excess of 100kg so doubt if burglars could be arsed to carry it out given the house alarm would be blaring too. But I could be wrong I suppose.

    Mine are in a safe,but if Iím just popping out for a couple of hours I usually just grab a cheaper watch that is in the bedroom.

    I used to hide my watches so well that half the time I couldnít remember where iíd put them !!
    Now I keep my choice pieces in my mateís safe and the ones I wear regularly stay well hidden but accessible. Iíve resorted to telling my other half where they are just in case I have another memory relapse !!

    Mine kept in a hidden safe apart from the one I keep out that I'm wearing in rotation with my Apple Watch. I hide this one when I'm not wearing it as my insurance doesnt cover me unless the watch is stored in a safe. But if I did that and had to put it in the safe every night I would never end up wearing one.

    Although depending on where you are in Japan (at least where my folk are from), you do pay ďinsuranceĒ, and the perps are usually quite sorry, and lacking a finger or two afterards.
