Secure watch storage

Greetings, all.

A quick question to the group, as most of you have much more watch collecting experience than I do. As my collection has grown to 4 good watches, I'm wondering the most efficient means of secure storage. Right now, I have one of the 4 on a winder that is on my dresser with the other 3 laying on top of the winder on cuffs. I'd like to keep the watches accessible and wearable and not relegate them to a safe, but wondering if there might be a more secure method of storage. Any ideas or recommendations are greatly appreciated!

-Scott

Fire and Burglary proof. Heavy. Bolted to the floor.

AmSec makes some nice ones.

We started with a small home safe and loved it. >>>

We ended up ended up with a full vault drilled in to the concrete floor with concrete on three sides and a motion sensors on the door. It's nice to know our photo albums and my G-Shock are safe. Even with all this, the watches, etc. are at the bank in a safe deposit box. Is it convenient? No. ..but I believe it's the most effective form of secure storage.

Photo albums (of pre-digitial images) aren't replaceable ! Good idea to keep them safe.

You bet...too much history to risk on a bookshelf, JB. :-)

Safe

Get a good home safe. Bolted down. One that will withstand the house burning down around it.

Best thing I ever bought. If you care about your watch boxes you'll need a pretty big one. Standard PAM and SE boxes are pretty big and take up a lot of space in the safe. If that's not important you can get by with a small one.

It's pretty ghetto but I put my watches in regular rotation in tube socks when I'm not wearing them to keep them from getting scratched from when I take them in and out of the safe.

My safe is about about 650lbs 5 feet tall and was a bitch to install in the base of my bedroom closet but all my watch related items stay in there and I feel good about it.

I have it bolted to the concrete foundation, and it's very secure. It has an S&G mechanical lock.

Thank you...

For the responses. Going to do a little safe shopping and research. A heavy safe might be problematic in our upstairs master bedroom since we have a 100 year old house, but I'll be finding out.

Thanks again for the input and pics!
