Do you keep a fake watch collection out in the open in your bedroom to reduce the impact of theft?

Lol? If you want to reduce the likelihood and/or impact of theft, consider the following:
1. Insurance
2. Fireproof safe bolted down
3. Safe deposit box off site
4. Alarm system

If I were a burglar and saw a case full of “expensive watches” sitting out in the open, I’d probably spend more time looking for other items of value. Don’t buy a bunch of fake watches “just to leave in the open in case someone tries to rob your house."

LMAO WTF.

Well be careful about bank vaults, turns out there is a lack oversight on these things.

I meant bank safe deposit boxes

It's not uncommon for women to have a jewelry box of cheap/casual stuff on the dresser and valuable items tucked away somewhere unexpected... guess the demographics are little different between the average person and those in this bowl

Anyone else kind of bored clerking?

Is a preowned Breitling Navitimer B01 (black eye blue dial) on leather strap at $4200 a good deal? It’s in excellent condition, purchased in 2020, but was a non-AD purchase (grey market) so it doesn’t have factory warranty.

So my Rolex AD keeps telling me they have not received any shipments for TWO months but on google reviews I keep seeing customers posting about new watches they purchased (some with pics). Some posting never had any purchase history. All these reviews are within the last month🤨. Will I be blacklisted for life if I showed those reviews and asked what going on?🥺
