Thanks for sharing, Viken -- a very instructive (and scary!) story. Glad the guy is still alive and decided to report this to alert other people.

PS: I'm taking the liberty of moving it to HoMe so more members can see it, and it also gets picked up on the Front page. Cheers.

We all need to carefully consider our personal security. This is particularly relevant when considering a GTG of any kind.

Terrible story and hope all is well .

Awful story and I feel very sorry for you.

Definitely,these days, I think twice before wearing an expensive watch for any out of the house activities. All of your advices certainly make a lot of sense to me. Best, Gerard

Brutal to read.

And not the first such story over the years. You have to be vigilant at all times. I am also a believer in a bank boxes for storage. I never travel with more than whatever I wear, and even at home I never have more than 1 nice watch. A bolted down safe is... 

Terrible story!

Sorry to hear this. Glad you are ok.

I will keep my eyes open for any of these.

Stay safe

Keep your eyes open. Never buy watches without box and paper.
