    Watch still inside the box, doesn't plan to use it untill a year or two..

    Hi everyone! First time posting here :D

    Short story: I celebrated my 18th birthday in China due to most of my families are there, my aunt bought me a Casio BESIDE BEM-506L-7AV which looked really nice and expensive along with a Samsonite messenger bag. When I got back to Norway my dad gave me a Timex BU08 and a brown leather bag. The thing is, I'm starting on my last year at high school this August and I'm not so hyped about using both of my bags and watches there, I wish to at least save the Casio and the Samsonite bag untill I start at university.

    I was wondering if the Casio watch would still lose its beauty (as if brown stains are going to show up and the watch losing it's silver color, and the leather straps are loosened) if I kept it in it's cardboard box the whole time for a year?

    The watches will look exactly the same in one years time as they do now.

    The watch will be fine. If it's someplace that's well climate controlled (low humidity), you could even store it with the crown pulled out in order to preserve battery life.

    If you're at all unsure-- no big deal. Batteries are cheap and it shouldn't be dead in a year anyway.
    Choose a job you love, and you'll never work a day in your life because that field isn't hiring.

    Welcome. Your watch will be good. Wear it in good health.
    Time is relative.
