    Watch Storage Methods

    My collection of watches now are in line from 20-30, ranging from Seiko, Hamilton then to Tudor, Omega, Panerai and a Rolex.

    I used a Barton watch roll, but found that the fabric liner had discolored my leather bands. Currently I have in a box with 12 cavities, some sharing space. I plan to wrap the watches partially with thin clear vinyl.

    I have a pelican case that I plan to use to hold my higher priced items. Curious what other folks are doing? I see some custom solutions in the other forum.

    When watches are not in your rotation, do you wind them or let them be?

    Just let them be, no need to keep them wound and put unnecessary wear on the movement.

    I do the same. Watches not in use run until their PR is expended, then sit until I wear them again.

    Watch Storage Methods

    Hi

    I like to have my watches handy, but it depends on the circumstances.

    When I am working during the week in an office environment I will keep probably 6 Grand Seiko’s on winders and rotate them as I like. Of the other four one is a quartz and the other 3 are special occasion. So they sit and wait, but I can get to them easily if I fancy.

    At the moment I am not in the office at all so my Pelagos is on the winder along with various lower end Seiko’s and a citizen. I also have a couple of G-SHOCKs and a Bulova that do not need winding.

    For those I use a box with compartments that the watches sit in.

    The important thing for me is that I can get to them easily. What’s the point in hiding them away. Out of sight out of mind. And I don’t want that.

    Mine are unfortunately hidden away, inside travel cases which go inside a locked cabinet. We have too many random people in and out of our house, and even if my watches aren't particularly valuable or precious, I know too many people who have had things lifted from their homes.

    For the stuff currently being worn, I love these clear plastic jewelry pouches. They're stiff enough to offer some protection in case of being dropped, or being scuffed if I stick them inside a drawer or my bag or glovebox, and clearly they're clear so it's easy to see what's inside.

    Someday I'd love to have mine out in a watch box, and I've been meaning to add a deadbolt to my closet, but just not the highest thing on my to do list.

    I have a few 12 spot glass top cases and winders for 5. My manual winders i wind every morning, my autos that are in rotation stay on the winders. Don't forget, oil can settle in the movements if not used. They are intended to run 24hrs/day and be serviced every few years.

    I have the same. A 1495 case with custom inserts.

    Nalpak.com is a good start.

    Can I ask where you get those?
