insurance claim on lost items

I have recently been on vacation where I lost my IWC watch worth 5 k (I know I'm stupid but it happened), now my question is, can I claim that of my insurer?, I was not declared on my insurance policy as it's not valued over 10k, but I still have the invoice and Amex evidence of payment.

Re: insurance claim on lost items

I'd imagine it would depend on your policy.

Isn't 5k a bit cheap for an IWC though?

From my chats with my insurance company (read: not solid information) you'd have needed to report the loss to police at the scene to get some sort of "report" (no idea what they'd write: "klutz loses watch"). I think it stops you lying and having the watch in a drawer somewhere. Just claim and see what happens.
