It is becoming increasingly fashionable to collect watches in this modern age that we live, and there is a wide selection of styles for you to choose from if you are looking to start a collection. If you do decide to collect watches, then you will need to keep them well-maintained and stored correctly to keep them in excellent condition. There is plenty of advice on websites such as the Readers Digest site, on how to keep your watches looking great for a long time to come.

. Treat Them With Care .

It is typical for the modern collector to not only collect watches but also to wear them as well. The more you wear a watch, the higher the overall wear and tear with scratches and scuffs, and if you have an antique watch that is in need of repair (or just bloody clumsy like I am), you can take it to a specialist such as https://www.kalmarantiques.com.au/ to fix and restore your watch. Although you may take excellent care of your watches, there will most likely be a time when they may need some repair or restoration work.

. Store It Correctly .

When you are not wearing your watch, you will want to ensure that you store it correctly and that the condition is nice and dry. Many watches come with a display case that can be used when you are not wearing it, and using these is an excellent way to look after it when it is not being worn. 

. Make Sure It Keeps Ticking .

If you have a variety of watches with a quartz movement, you will need to make sure that you keep it ticking, winding it regularly but ensuring you do not over wind it. If you have a watch which charges through kinetic energy, you can invest in a watch winder that stimulates the movement of the body and will not over wind the watch.

. Give It A Clean .

You will want to give your watch a clean on a regular basis, and depending on the type of watch you may wish to use a professional service for this. You should get your watch cleaned and serviced every couple of years, which should keep it in tip-top condition for many years to come. 

. Verdict .

From the previous posts, you'll know by now how much I appreciate a good timepiece. I know if I were to take excellent care of my watches, they can keep ticking for a long time to come, and even qualify as a hand-them down as a family heirloom. At home, I store my watches in a watch box gifted by my father (he wanted to throw away initially). However whenever I'm away, watch storage is always on the surface of my desk or bedside table depending on my mood or wherever I fancy. (a.k.a.  next to my shoes, lol jokes) In year 2018, I know it's time to get a watch box and give demn watches a bit of TLC . How do you keep your watches sexy? x
