Thread: In or out?

  1. #1

    In or out?

    Took the old beast out of the safe last week to find nothing happening. Got the battery changed today, and, breath a sigh of relief, still working!
    I guess has been out of rotation for about 6-8 months..



    When back in the safe, is it best to keep the crown out, and stopped, or not?
    I know it's been asked before, but I cannot remember!

    It's just a matter of time...

    May I recommend not shaken all about.
    You can live in your car but you can't drive your house.

    How long do you foresee storing it? If long term, I'd suggest battery out, not crown!

    I always like to run my watches every now and then. Not sure if it's the right thing to do, it just seems right. Maybe one of the watchmakers can help.

    I try to wear in rotation, but that can be a period of months.
