Quick question for the mechanical experts.
So, we've all been there. I bought another watch that I really did not need. So I told the wife it was for my birthday. Which is in December. For those late to the party, this post is being written on July 5. She has informed me that if the watch is a gift from her and the children for my birthday, I can have it on the day, not sooner. And I quote, "If you pre-purchase your gift and then wear get to wear it until then, you will soon be buying yourself watches for your 50th (I'm 34)."
She's right, you know. But I digress. What I need to know if there will be any negative consequences of storing a mechanical for that amount of time. It will be in my house, so reasonably climate controlled. It's a C. Ward, so either an ETA or Stellita. Are there any issues with 6 months of storage I should be aware of? Anything I need to do in the interim?
Thanks in advance.
