Watch Box: A Watch’s Best Friend

Most people don’t know about this, but storing a watch in the right place is so important. Maintaining a watch is not an easy task, even though it may appear to be one. Whether you have a few colorful watches to match your outfits or are an avid collector, there are some things you must take into consideration while investing in an expensive (or not-so-expensive, for that matter) watch. The most important of that list would be getting a safe watch box to store your watch (or watches) and keep them in tip-top condition.

What Does A Watch Box Protect the Watch From?

This is a good question; many people have asked me why it’s so important to keep watches in watch boxes because they were unaware of the threat posed towards an exposed watch. A watch left out in the open is exposed to scratches, the potential damage from moisture, possible theft, and in the long run, it may stop working if not used for years (you might want to get a watch winder for this). These are just four of the many risks a watch is prone to.

Lucky for you, this article is all about protecting your watch from these potential threats. If you’re never heard of a watch box before, brace yourself because it’s going to be used plenty in this article!

Get a good watch box

This is the first step to protecting your watch if you don’t already have a watch winder. Having a watch box is handy not only for protecting your watch but helps you remember to place your watch in one particular place.

There are many variations of watch boxes in the market today, so take your pick! Many watch boxes look similar to jewelry boxes with various compartments, allowing you to store more than one watch in the same box. They are often lined with felt or plush fabric to prevent the watch from getting dented.

Store your watch facing upward in the watch box

Even if your watch box has a plush lining, placing your watch facing downwards can be dangerous; the crystals may still get scratched, cracked, or at least dulled. Make sure you always place it facing upwards with the dial facing you.

Leave gaps between the watch box

If your watch box stores more than one watch, make sure you leave spaces between them. Ensure they’re not touching each other, which is yet another cause for getting easily damaged. An ideal measurement is a 1.3 cm gap between them.

Use Silica in your watch box

If you’re worried about the moisture content and want to be extra cautious, you could always get silica gel packets and protect your watches with them in your watch box. This presents the condensation to damage the gears inside your watch and could be a smart move.

A watch winder instead of a watch box

If you have automatic watches, consider investing in a watch winder (which also comes with various compartments) instead of a mere watch box. This helps maintain your watch, and turns your watch for you, which means it doesn’t need to be manually wound: two birds with one stone!Watch Box Co., is an online store offering different types of personalized watch boxes for men and women such as carbon fiber, wooden & leather watch boxes, watch travel cases, automatic watch winders, ring boxes, and so on.
