Hey,
I have an expensive watch, it's the only thing I have that's even close to being flashy. Should I be worried about being jumped in a dark alley for it. I know better safe than sorry, and I should leave it at home. Thing is I'm no poof. Been told I'm not the kind of guy they want to see in a dark alley. Not to sound like a tough guy, but would a theif even bother with me.

^ Probably not, but I'd still leave the watch at home. Why tempt fate? I'd be more worried about damaging it or losing it rather than getting mugged. You're more at risk for that if you're carrying a fancy iPod!

I just picked up a $5 watch at Wal Mart. Going to leave my spendy Bulova watch in a lock box along with my diamond engagement ring. No way I'd risk losing either of those two things!

Good plan, I also would be more concerned about losing/damaging them, but why invite a fight, even if you are ? Travelling is supposed to be fun, after all!
