    That's so sad to hear, how about insurance or you didn't have that? Would be great to see all the watches you have now :) I love IWC...

    yeah, it was a sad day haha. Insurance covered $1,500 in jewelry because like the brilliant genius i claim to be...i neglected to have them individually scheduled.

    as for IWC..right now i have a portuguese laureus edition, and the FA Jones.

    May not be most expensive or desirable watch out there, but from very first moment I saw a Mcqueen Monaco, a Heuer 1133B was my (realistic) grail watch.

    yeah sucks...but i was far too wrapped up in them. theyre all replaceable.

    Also forgot to add....I had about $7K in custom Panerai straps and rolex bracelets too. :( some were custom made by a close friend and a couple to commemorate some meet ups i hosted.

    Really sorry for your loss. Perhaps we should discuss insurance on watches. I've never done it, I have a very heavy safe and deposit box for the fancy things. Some companies specialize in insurance for timepieces. Thoughts?
