    Well, gents, back to one watch for me.

    I guess I'll be wearing my trusty luminox sentry for a while, since I got ROBBED on Tuesday. Time to rebuild the collection. Too bad insurance has watches under "jewelry," so I'm capped at $1k reimbursement. Didn't think I needed a rider for my little collection.

      Jeeze [MENTION=16882]Mad Martigan[/MENTION] that sucks. Sorry to hear that. So will you rebuild what you already had, or look for some new items?

        Getting robbed sucks because not only lose things but you feel vulnerable for quite a while after. You can get a separate policy for pretty cheap with $0 deductible and add it to your other insurance for a bundle package. You just need something to confirm the price and a listing of what you own.

          Thanks. Idk what I'll do. Some I def want back. I want my scurfa back, I want my SKX that I just got 2 weeks ago back. I had several deep blues that I really did like but are probably interchangeable with a lot of stuff I could try. I loved my SARY055, but I got it because I couldn't swing a cocktail time right at that moment, and it was a fine substitute. I will make some different buys, but I will have my faves again.

            Actually I will probably buy a seiko PADI solar this weekend. I had been eying that one as my next purchase anyway.

              Didn't you have a nice set of golf clubs that they took? A big tv? You might want to double check...

                Haha no I don't think that will be necessary. I will probably have to fight them a little bit to pay up for my guitar.

                  Suggesting insurance fraud, nice...

                  To OP, sorry about the loss, I just finally got around to getting jewelry insurance coverage on my watches. It's annoying that any/all watches are considered 'jewelry' for sure. As a fellow WUS, the (small) upside is that you can rethink your collection, rebuy what you want back and change others where you weren't enjoying them as much, etc. Obviously a very small silver lining relatively speaking.

                    I mentioned it in a post years ago, but it's important for clothing enthusiasts to pay attention to insurance and proper documentation. The average American male does not have a substantial collection of quality items. Adjusters will be skeptical if you claim you lost $5,000 worth of shoes in a fire, etc.

                      Great point, as part of my recent insurance upgrade, I did a photo cataloging of not only my traditional valuables, but just anything that was substantial (singularly or in the aggregate). That included my shoes, suits, dress shirts, furniture, art, kitchen appliances, etc.

                      This is probably also a place to note that not all insurance is created equal. You'll pay for it, but as a general rule, higher end providers will give you a lot less hassle when it comes to claims than your budget providers. YMMV if it's right for your specific situation.

                        I think he was just joking, guys. But 100%, I was slack on on documentation for some of my stuff. Mostly the guitar. Actually I think I had some good documentation on it, but it was in the damned case lol. I should have gotten a rider for watches, but I didn't know about the 1k cap. Luckily I pulled receipts for pretty much all of them off PayPal. I just need to see how they do the pay out. IOW, they're nice enough to pay replacement cost on most things, but I think they actually want you to buy the replacement and reimburse you instead of just cutting a check for the claim beforehand. They also said I have 2 years to get replacements handled.

                        Luckily I had just taken a picture of my 1998 PRS custom 22 in July. It's a fantastic guitar, but I am not a fantastic guitar player lol. It was a gift from my parents 20 years ago, so it means a lot to me. If I bought another one it wouldn't be the same.

                          Get a safe. Lasts forever; you can sell it if you get tired of it; and it's cheaper over time than paying insurance premiums on the things you could just put in the safe. Plus, safes are cool.
