    To remove or not to remove? (Stickers)

    Hi all... i know there are lots of posts on this, but, usually they are for the back stickers.. what I'm referring to now, is the full case stickers..

    I recently got my Ultimate Holy Grail.. and surprisingly the AD did not remove the stickers.. I've been using it since, with the stickers still on.. will it cause any long term damage? The case is full pure solid 18k rose gold..

    Since it comes with deployant, i tend to let it rest crown up, so i think the stickers will serve as a protection layer for the case.. what do you all think? Anyone does the same as me?

    Doesn't it look just plain horrible with the stickers on?

    The edges will collect dirt like crazy.

    Some people do it tho, like it makes the watch more legit or something but come on! If they can fake a whole watch, what more a sticker? Also true with papers tho haha

    peel the sticker and stick it to a sticky note and stick it with the box and stuff where ever you stuck them.

Yes, it's a real scientific phenomenon that obscure mad scientists only recently discovered.

    Do you leave the tags on your clothing, too?

    Seriously? Remove the stickers. They are not part of the watch.
