Keeping time in your hands is one thing no one can ever do. However, you can definitely store the magnificent and exclusive time pieces. If you are an avid watch collector, or just someone who wants to keep their timepieces safe, here are some important tips –
- When you are planning to store your watches in a self storage facility, the first thing that you need to do is to clean them properly. You can either go for winders if you have automatic watches or store them without those. If you have mechanical watches, ensure that you store all the pieces with the watch so that you do not end up losing them.
- Clean the watches thoroughly as they can get clogged due to dust.
- Although it is recommended to pack the watches in their original packing, however, if you do not have the original packing, pack them in a box or case in which the watch can get stored properly.
- Clocks and watches can get affected in extreme climates, especially hot and humid climate. It is therefore necessary to store watches in a climate controlled self storage unit.
Watches have a good shelf life and can keep on working for decades if maintained properly. Keep these tips in mind for storing your watches.
