Looks like something a palaeontologist would dig up.

I could say the same about you, if they were excavating a mammoth.

Is that the 54mm model or 56mm? Looks a good fit!

M&S mate. Went through loads of headaches with loads of other companies, asking me to install a safe and put locks on all windows etc

With M&S, just set an amount you’d like to insure, and that’s it. Don’t even have to list each item individually or provide valuations.

Agree on M&S (underwritten by Aviva). they use hallmark for their replacements and valuations too who are part of the goldsmiths, watches of Switzerland and Mapin and Webb group. More supply of watches than any other company in the uk. Got me a replacementt Daytona in 18 months and a replacement explorer and JLC in 48hrs. Cover anything up to £15k. Over that you are looking at a safe being installed (no bad thing anyway) and specified items. Also sorted by my house out after break in within about 2-3hrs which was very good. Didn’t dispute any items claimed where we didn’t have receipts and paid out quickly. Have been renewing with them for a few years now.

It would be unusual for an insurer to have an undefined unspecified personal possessions limit. Made sure you read your policy booklet chaps

It's an unusual policy. Never found another like it. Anything under £15k for jewellery and watches up to £50k total in and out of the house. No requirement to state what the item is as long as it is under £15k. Works for anything under that limit, once over that then have to look elsewhere as they dont do named items on top of this.

As above, spoke to them about this on the phone and they confirmed.

And, Ginner has already made a claim so not sure what other evidence you’d need to believe it!

Was set on getting a Rolex. Got offered an Explorer I during lockdown but didn’t want to buy without trying it on which they couldn’t do so lost the chance. However, this GS caught my eye and I love the textured dial. Very happy to pick it up without all the usual Rolex fuckery

Terrible comeback dude.

And that’s a 45mm. You heard of that number?

At least no waitlist for you for a 29mm or 31mm. You lucky lady.
