A nice watch should have a place to rest when you are not wearing it. If you have a pile of watches on the top of your dresser, maybe it is time to invest in a nice watch box. A watch box stores and displays your collection neatly, and prevents damage from watches and other items banging into each other.
Self-winding watches that you do not wear every day are well-served by a watch winder. Placing the automatic watch on a winder keeps it safe, but also keeps it running and on time between uses so you do not have to manually wind and reset it.
If you have a vintage pocket watch that you would prefer to display rather than carry every day, a pocket watch dome might be a great option.
