A watch is not just a way to tell the time anymore (your cellphone does an equally good job).
No. Today your watch is a status symbol. The right watch will show the world that you’re a man of fine taste and stature. A man who is well traveled, successful and socially aware.
The kind of man that both men and women wish to spend their time with.
And since you find your way here, I assume that you already spent some hard earned money on that perfect watch.
Perhaps it’s that Tag Heuer you always wanted. Or maybe a vintage Rolex or that elegant Patek Philippe.
Whatever watch you end up buying, let me first congratulate you. A watch is a great investment and you will share many great moments with your new time keeper.
But now listen carefully:
Buying a watch is just the first step. You also need to be aware how to store your new watch. You see, storing your watch in a non-safe environment can be quite dangerous to it’s health. In worst case, your precious time keeper will be ruined in just a few years.
And here are just a few things that can reduce the life of your valued time piece:
- Dust particles that will find itself inside your watch and ruin the mechanics
- Scratches caused by other watches or items
- Rust caused by storage in a high moisture environment
So what’s the best way to store a watch?
In my opinion, the absolute best storage is a high quality watch box.
A watch box has many benefits. Most importantly it will prevent dust particles from getting inside the mechanisms. In addition, it will keep your watches separate (hence preventing scratches) plus provide a secure locked storage. As an added benefits, a watch storage case is a great way to show your valued collection to guests and family members.
And, since there are so many different options I have put together this guide that will help you select the best watch box for your exact needs.
