To my great shame, I need to admit this is how it has been looking for the past 4 years or so :-(.
The thick walls of the safe are because it is fire-protected and very well insulated - for storage media. We were never afraid of burglars, due to our dogs - but we used to live in a straw-thatched house.
I took the opportunity and moved 16 of them into a box (which also fits into the safe):
I used to have a gigantic wooden box like this - 3 drawers, 16 watches each. Even that was not big enough, and worst of all - it would not fit into the bloody safe. It was also fucking heavy to carry around. So I ditched it (actually gave it to my watchmaker in return for some good deeds).
Then I thought, let me quickly sort through the rest and decide what to sell and what to keep. But I only found few which I would be willing to sell, once more. So I gave up on that again.
Some are with my watchmaker, and the "ongoing projects" are in another place as well.
@Alain - I actually suggest to move this thread to the "members only section", for safety.
