How Do I insure My Rolex?
If you’re asking this question, then you probably know that your home policy might not cover you fully for your watch if something happens to it. Yes, you only get a fraction of the actual value of your wristwatch when you put in a claim. You might want to discuss that with your home policy issuer. However, the suitable option for your Rolex insurance will be to go for a standalone policy with a separate jewellery insurer. You need a jewellery insurer that understands the watch insurance market. At least this way, you know exactly what you’re getting with your watch insurance.
Insuring your Rolex against possible theft or loss with a separate jewellery insurer is a good thing because that way you know you’re fully covered for any unforeseen circumstances outside your home.

Is my watch is included in my home contents policy?
If you have a home contents policy, then your Rolex watch is probably included in your home contents insurance. But, as said earlier, home policy with contents tend to limit the coverage on any single valuable item like a Rolex to a certain amount, say $1500. In addition, the home policy does not cover you for any loss or damage to your watch outside your home.
- Some home contents policy do have options to extend coverage, however it’s not always the best solution.
- Some of the home policy insurers will not provide coverage for loss or accidental damage for your wristwatch.
- They do not cover you when you’re travelling, where there’s a higher risk of loss
- You get to lose your no-claims bonus
