if its insured anyway, would it not be insured abroad?

if not, just get an extention of cover. if you cant, leave it at home.

Tried on a hublot big bang (?) last night in the gold souk here, thing is fucking huge on my wrist. 2nd hand one was going for 7,000 quid.

Also have a gold cartier santos 100 the one that noble bought with a steel/gold strap, again immaculate condition 2nd hand for 3,500.

Depends 1) what watch it is and 2) what they actually did.

1)Panerai Marina Luminor Power Reserve 2) Basically stopped working he said something about how panerais arent very shock proof and that he need to order a new part for it. Seeing as it was an automatic when it stops working I normally shake it proper hard to get it going again as its a 44hr power reserve. Also when i shake it i sometimes I bang it proper hard on the bedpost (no homo) and the last time I did that the second hand fell off.
