Cheers! To you, the new year – and your new timepiece. Whether it’s vintage Rolex or a brand new Patek Philippe, we’ve come up with 5 tips for keeping your timepiece in top condition in 2017.
1. Store It Properly
No matter what type of movement you received this season, it’s important to make sure that when it’s not on your wrist, it’s stored properly. Humidity and dust are public enemy #1 of watches, so you should keep them in a dry, temperature-controlled location. Humidity can seep into cases and the moisture can destroy dials and cause movements to rust.
If you own an automatic watch, make sure to purchase a watch winder to keep the movement running. There’s nothing worse than waking up late in the morning and realizing you need to wind and set your timepiece when you really don’t have a moment to spare. Watch winders also double as great storage for your entire collection.
If you are looking to purchase a watch winder, we recommend that you bring your collection in to our store where we can evaluate what type of winder you need. We partner with Los Angeles’s Wolf Designs who has been building state of the art machines for over 180 years. Wolf Designs is known for it’s stylish designs and patented technology. We wouldn’t trust just any winder for our premium watches.
