I need some help!!!

We will travel to London for Christmas and I really want to bring one of my 3 favorite watches of mine. But everywhere on the internet you can read about robberies and shit, especially when you wear a nice watch.

Now I have a few questions.

Do the articles about the robberies mean like AP鈥榮, Rolexes and Richard Milles with nice watches, or are my watches targeted as well?

And if so, would it be dumb to bring one of these watches anyways? I mean it will be pretty cold so I would wear a jacket or at least a sweatshirt so the watch would be hidden like 90% of the time.

So the options are:

  1. Tudor Pelagos 39

  2. Omega Speedmaster FOIS

  3. Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical Bronze

  4. No watch at all.

Thanks for everyone helping me!

To be safe, bring number 3.

Nobody is robbing those 3 watches.

It鈥檚 only Rolex AP and Patek that gets targeted.

If you are worried about it causing a robbery problem I would take the Ham. For me personally I would take the Pelagos. I鈥檝e traveled a lot to Europe and I鈥檝e never had an issue when wearing a high end watch.

Okay thank you very much! 馃憤

I Would go with the Hamilton and please be safe, absolutely have long sleeves etc until you arrive at your destination, be cautious when it's dark and hope you enjoy your trip!

I visited London for a couple weeks over the summer, and I didn't see robberies on every street corner and thugs hiding in every bush, jumping out and grabbing watches off the wrist of every passerby.

I pretty much wore a Christopher Ward the whole time with no issues. It didn't seem unsafe at any point I was there. But I stayed in the well populated, relatively safe areas and didn't venture into any dark alleys.

But anything can happen, so still, I'd wear something that wouldn't be devastating to lose or damage.

I鈥檝e worn Rolex鈥檚, Patek and many other brands all over and I鈥檝e never had any problems. With any of those I wouldn鈥檛 worry about it.

For the sake of peace of mind just take the Hamilton.

Why risk it??

Youve nothing to gain, so leave your nice ones at home (not saying that the Hamilton isn't a nice watch, but you get my drift...)

Good luck
