best, but most expensive, is to submit individual appraisals on each item to your homeowners/renters insurance, and have a separate rider for each. so you are 100% covered. but it will cost a you a few bucks each year. the mo stuff the mo money in insurance, and that can get pricey.
one thing to confirm with the insurance provider though, as there are different options, is in case of loss, will they reimburse you for the appraised amount, or just replace the watch for you. they all have agreements with jewelers for these things. i know a place in ATL that has 5 person team that only deals with insurance companies and replacements. its good to know what you are paying for in case you make a claim.

The tourb is just nifty to look at.
fock you. i love a tourb. it is my ultimate grail watch. particularly the JLC gyro 2, or triptique.
