Protect your investment.

Here's how to keep your watch in perfect condition.

Clean it: A tune-up from a trusted company like Central Watch every three years preserves precision. Keep the service papers in case you sell the watch.

Store it: When not wearing an automatic watch, put it on a watch winder so the movement stays alive. Try a model from SwissKubik.

Hide it away: Store your watch in a dark drawer or closet to protect the dial, hands, and markers from fading caused by sunlight.
