    Hanging watches

    I have a question for people in the know,

    Is hanging watches a bad idea/move and does it have any affect on movement? I have a quartz, and auto and 2 hand wound movements,
    I've gotten Into a habit of winding my hand wounds every day and can't be bothered to get them out of a case everyday, so find it easier to get them off a hook every morning, but want to make sure it's ok to do!

    I want to upload a pic but my phone won't let me :/

    You mean is hanging a watch up from a hook an ok thing to do? Yeah, it should be fine. The watch doesn't really know if it is hanging from a hook or placed flat in a box, no difference.

    I've started hanging my Citizen Diver from the buckle on a hook on the wall. It's on a NATO now, so it's quite secure, and I like hanging it.

    I just about wet my pants when I saw this and thought that this was your collection. If this is where I am headed, heaven help me...
