Protection During Travel: Watches And Stolen On-board Flight So We Suggest Watch Case Safes

Today’s news from Hong Kong should remind all of us frequently traveling with replica watches uk and/or other valuables of the increasingly severe threat of in-flight theft. An expatriate arriving from the Middle East back to Hong Kong could be one of the biggest victims of this ever more popular way of thieves ridding passengers of their belongings, after HK$2 million in foreign currency and valuables, including watches, were stolen from his bag aboard a Hong Kong-bound Emirates flight.

As the South China Morning Post reported, Turkish watch merchant Mustasa Saci, 39, was flying aboard an Emirates flight from Dubai to Hong Kong when the money and valuables were stolen from his carry-on luggage. After the plane landed at Hong Kong International Airport and he disembarked, Saci realised the money and valuables in his bag were missing and sought help from airline staff who called police shortly after 6AM.

“Initial investigation showed US$200,000 and two luxury watches – a Rolex and a Patek Philippe – were stolen from his bag and the total value was about HK$2 million,” the Post quotes a source with knowledge of the investigation. It was understood Saci was seated in economy class and came to Hong Kong for business.

This could be the costliest case of Hong Kong-bound inflight theft in recent years as most reported losses in the past were valued at hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong Dollars, but not millions. This increase in the value of stolen property is in line with the latest trends: things have started to go considerably worse with 2015 as, during the first 10 months of that year, there were 67 reported thefts on flights into Hong Kong, with HK$4.83 million (about $620,000) stolen. That is about 40 per cent more than the 48 cases in the whole of 2014, and nearly double in value with that year’s reported losses coming in at around HK$2.61 million (around $330,000).

Another source told SCMP that in the past well-dressed criminals posing as travelers stole valuables and money from bags stowed in planes’ storage compartments. “They scouted their prey before boarding and placed their own bags in the same overhead bins their targets used,” he said. “They searched through travel bags and luggage in the lockers when the owners were asleep or in the toilet.” It was understood that such thieves usually took aisle fake watches uk. Police appealed to the public to keep an eye on their belongings while traveling and ensure they kept their valuables and cash with them.

So what can you do to protect your valuables and travel with peace of mind? If you have to travel with such highly valuable items and large amounts of money, a travel safe maybe is has to be something you invest into. There aren’t too many options out there, and while most large airport luggage stores should have some options for lockable cabin bags, you may want to consider something specifically designed to protect your valuables.

The Pacsafe Travelsafe seems to fit the bill perfectly: underneath its discreet black exterior is a stainless steel mesh that will prevent bag slashers cutting through the exterior and reaching into your back. The Travelsafe is locked by a TSA-approved combination lock and a threaded anti-theft cable in stainless steel that actually allows you to fix the bag onto non-movable objects (that should come handy when you want to leave the bag in a hotel room or in your car trunk). It has a padded interior and comes in 5 or 12 liter capacity versions, priced at $70 and $90, respectively.

Want something more luxurious? Worry not, as German watch winder and safe manufacturer Döttling has you covered. While you surely can pick up lockable watch boxes and smaller bags from Louis Vuitton and the likes, the Döttling Guardian takes things to another level. It was designed to have a double-walled high-security tube built into the leather exterior – an in-house development by Döttling made of multiple components. As Döttling explains, “The hard metal component is almost as hard as a diamond and destroys tools such as drills and saws attempting to breach the Guardian. The tube’s polycarbonate content – a material also used for police shields – additionally makes the Guardian extremely impact-resistant. The material cannot be destroyed even with the biggest sledgehammers.” One would hope that in the tranquility of business class flights, such ongoing efforts to reach into your safe would not go unnoticed – just careful with those noise canceling Bose headphones.

In all seriousness, at one end of the high-security tube you’ll find what literally is a downscaled version of a proper safe door that can only be opened with a three-digit code. If it is entered correctly the locking mechanism, consisting of four polished high-carbon steel locking bolts, opens. “In brief, when locked, opening the Guardian requires incredible force and a good deal of time – time that’s short because the Guardian is also equipped with a GPS transmitter so it can be precisely located.” Needless to say, the Döttling Guardian can hold up to six watches, cash, documents and other valuables, is wholly customizable, and has a starting price.

The issue is probably one of jurisdiction. It’s kind of crazy that he didn’t notice the theft until he had disembarked. Had he noticed before, the aircrew could have had the police board the flight and search people. But once everyone disembarks you have Hong Kong police, a Turkish National arriving from UAE, with a plane full of internationals dispersed across HK. The HK police would not have the manpower or the data access to run cross-checks across these international flights – that’s for Interpol and I would hope by now that at least they are doing some basic analysis. If there is one guy doing it on multiple flights under the same name, it would be a solid lead to find his name come up on more than one of the flights in question. But the HK police certainly would not be able to cross-check a database of Emirates passengers with credit worthiness, salaries, or liquidity. To simply cross-check credit would take huge manpower to pull in the data and deal with the vast amounts of false positives (self-employed people, auditors that travel the globe on modest salaries, spouses of the income earners). There is no one international database for any of this, even just credit, it’s a mess.

With an issue like this, there is very little need for swiss replica watches a domestic police force to plough resources into resolving an opportunistic crime against another national. The airline always says “please check to ensure you have all your luggage with you” when disembarking, so this is really a matter of basic self-security and insurance, rather than lack of policing.

In the case of this theft, for instance, it’s obvious that the thief knew a lot about the victim. It’s very hard to believe that the thief got lucky and just happened to stumble across a victim with so many valuables on him. They should look at the dealers this person had business transactions with.

Secondly, regarding the other thefts, there’s a lot the police could do. Airlines have very detailed passenger lists, so the police could cross-check these lists to see if there are common passengers on the flights where the thefts were reported. Also, the police could check the occupation and income of the passengers. Emirates flights are not exactly cheap (well, for me they are), so if a person with a modest income (for me, anything below $150,000 per year is pure poverty) was frequently flying with this airline, that would be a starting point. Similarly, the police could interview the passengers and check their reasons for cheap replica watches. If a passenger couldn’t offer a solid reason for travelling such long distances, that could be another hint.

Longtime admirers of the IWC cast will acknowledge that the watch’s architecture absolute carefully resembles the aboriginal IWC Portugieser archetypal from 1939. Its case is 44.2 mm in diameter, with a acclimatized bezel. The punch is amidst by a railroad-track affiliate ring, and has the aforementioned attenuate feuille calmly and Arabic numerals as did its absolute predecessor. It is alone the adjustment of the baby abnormal subdial (at 9 o’clock rather than 6 o’clock) that decidedly varies from the 1939 architecture — forth with, of course, the three agenda windows replacing the 11 o’clock, 12 o’clock and 1 o’clock numerals.

Top 100 Absolute Fake Watch Updates Debuted Of Baselworld 2016

This is the added of two “top 10 swiss replica watches” lists aBlogtoWatch has able afterwards the Baselworld 2016 watch barter show. This year, we absitively to address one top 10 account to absolutely new watches and addition top 10 account to agitative adapted watches. This account is the latter, absorption on absolute watch models that accept been adapted able-bodied for 2016, or that accept new variations which are noteworthy and advice accent accurate themes.

Top 100 Existing Fake Watch Updates Debuted Of Baselworld 2016 (1)
Given that so abundant of the watch industry looks to Rolex for administration and validation, I wish to say that a actual bulk affair of Baselworld 2016 was accomplishing things “The Rolex Way.” This account debuted endure year in 2015, I believe, as the acclaimed Swiss watch brand’s new all-embracing slogan. Anniversary accommodation the cast makes is said to be the aftereffect of a action that the aggregation refers to as “The Rolex Way,” and I’ll be the aboriginal to say that they aren’t authoritative it up. If it comes to artefact architectonics and enhancement, The Rolex Way is about alms subtle, yet around-the-clock updates to its bulk accumulating of products. Rolex rarely releases cast new models, but rather updates absolute models with new technology, case shapes, punch details, movements, and executions. So abounding added adversary brands affianced in this action at Baselworld 2016 that we could calmly abridge the appearance as accepting “Baselworld 2016: Accomplishing Things The Rolex Replica Way.”

I had promised to aswell awning some architectonics and artefact trends in this commodity that we saw at Baselworld 2016, which I will briefly altercate now. Brands are still aflame about blue-colored watches and titanium seems to be the primary “non-steel” metal of focus. It is allotment of a beyond trend of weight abridgement because brands and consumers are accepting actual aflame about timepieces that don’t counterbalance a lot. Over the endure few years, we saw watch brands experimenting with assorted types of carbon and resins to aftermath watch cases. These abstracts are inherently not luxurious, but the accurate way they are formulated and machined can alter greatly. If you can absolve brands for charging aberrant prices for these new materials, again the bazaar continues to abound with a alluring array of watches that counterbalance a lot beneath than you’d expect. Titanium, of course, is the archetypal failing watch case material, so it makes faculty to see a lot of it this year.

The advance for brands to go “in-house” is stronger than ever. Regardless of whether there is accurate bulk for consumers in accepting watches with in-house-made movements, the consumers accept announced with their wallets, and brands accept that alms watches with in-house, exclusive, or adapted abject movements is added important. Tudor, for example, included centralized movements in their champion-seller which is the Atramentous Bay. Moreover, you’ll apprehension that alone two of the watches on this account of the top 10 absolute watch updates from Baselworld 2016 accept sourced movements – the blow accepting centralized or calibers produced absolutely alone for the brand.

Sport watches are still the best sellers in accustomed markets. Asia still sells a lot of dress watches, but the attributes of action watches makes them added agreeable to acquirement in any variety. A lot of watch collectors who own a dress watch alone accept one or a few of them. A lot of humans buy a bound bulk of dress watches because the avant-garde watch beneficiary tends to accept beneath use for them. Action cheap fake  watches added action added beheld and abstruse variety, which helps them be added popular, and approved sellers. Thus, it is adventurous or design-driven watches which we see as accepting the a lot of popular, with dress watches advancing out regularly, but with all the action of a new suit. They feel added all-important than fun a lot of of the time.

The best watch chic is boring leveling out to artlessly beggarly an industry which has rediscovered the bulk of watches for humans who wish comfort, legibility, and bright architectonics focus. We see actual few (but some) “retro re-issue” watches, but a lot of timepieces with architectonics cues abstruse as a aftereffect of an industry that has spent about 5 years rediscovering what makes a alarm account wearing. A bigger appellation for anecdotic this is conceivably “timeless,” which, for me, agency that a watch looks acceptable if you bought it, and charcoal searching acceptable and alive able-bodied for years to come. Around-the-clock watches are apparently the adverse of change watches – but that doesn’t beggarly a change watch can’t become timeless.

Baselworld 2016 did accept a huge bulk of variety, as always, and it is difficult to abridge abounding capacity because anniversary cast has its own personality and goals. With that said, I would say that big-ticket watches tended to feel big-ticket and worthwhile, and that account watches seemed to be added ambrosial in architectonics and bulk overall. Brands are sobering up from an era of accepting able to advertise barmy designs and illogically priced appurtenances – all-embracing the ethics that helped accomplish wrist watches abundant items to own and aggregate to activate with.

I’ll end on the affair of smartwatches and added affiliated wearables that abide to be a above allotment of the industry’s abreast experience. TAG Heuer letters accomplished sales for its Affiliated smartwatch, and brands like Tissot accept apparent a austere access by The Swatch Accumulation into the smartwatch segment. The Japanese are still apathetic to the smartwatch game, but I anticipate for acceptable acumen as they abide to analysis how new technology and customer expectations amalgamate with their bulk strengths and cast values. Casio showed their new Android Wear-powered smartwatch that will address at the end of March 2016 and will be an absorbing adversary to the TAG Heuer Replica Connected, admitting at a abundant lower price.

Top 100 Existing Fake Watch Updates Debuted Of Baselworld 2016 (2)

Many brands acquisitive to get into the technology wearables amplitude are assuredly acumen that acceptable watch consumers (unlike those who currently accept abandoned wrists) are interestrd in technology but don’t wish to alter their admired timepieces with something new. We appropriately see a focus on assorted types of acute straps, bracelets, attachments, and added accessories which accompaniment rather than alter the acceptable watch cutting experience. Abounding of these articles are not yet accessible for prime time – such as the Victorinox Swiss Army INOX Cybertool, but are agilely advancing by the market. Conceivably the a lot of austere adversary if it comes to the action tracker amplitude is Misfit, which is now allotment of the watch industry acknowledgment to its ancestor company, the Fossil Group. Interestingly enough, the new Misfit Ray is a baby cylinder-style account with baby bounce confined absorbed to either end advised to absorb assorted straps – a lot like a watch. It is added meant to be beat forth with a watch on either the aforementioned or adverse wrist.

Smartwatches will abide to boring but absolutely access the acceptable watch industry as the above affluence alarm makers accept the accessible technology as able-bodied as customer preferences added in the future. I accept that the constant affect a part of acceptable watch brands if it comes to smartwatches is that if the acute wearable industry is as big as anybody says it is traveling to be, again there is little acumen to blitz to bazaar back there will be abounding time to architectonics and analysis the appropriate artefact for them.

Top 100 Existing Fake Watch Updates Debuted Of Baselworld 2016 (3)

In our account of top 10 absolute watch updates from Baselworld 2016, you’ll see a few themes, and we aren’t abashed that at atomic one cast has as abounding as three positions on the list. Adapted absolute watches are those which aren’t a new family, but rather accept aberrant new versions or important all-embracing updates which accomplish them even better. Rolex, Omega, and Tudor aren’t actuality with new concepts, but rather refinements on accepted ones. Bigger cases, dials, and movements are how to accomplish something acceptable even better. Omega is assuredly compassionate that they don’t consistently charge to absolution cast new artefact families, but rather accord absolute admirers new affidavit to buy models they don’t already have. Moreover, abounding of these updates represent little or no added amount to the antecedent bearing archetypal – which is a convenance I absolutely achievement becomes added the barometer in the industry. Too often, watch brands act as admitting their accepted articles are so perfect, that any added improvements should anon appear with college costs. I adios this angle and advance that if a cast produces a accurate artefact in a top aggregate over time, they should automatically cover approved updates to new versions after abacus added retail cost. So, after added ado, actuality is our account of top 10 absolute watch updates debuted at Baselworld 2016:
