My daily routine (ritual) is to go into my man cave every evening and wind up all my automatic and mechanical watches. I also look over my quartz pieces and make sure they are all running up to par. This ritual involves shining all my bracelets, crystals, and cases. I do this while listening to my favorite songs on my MP3 Player. I know I sound a little strange, but does anybody else do anything similar to this?

Not really a daily routine . . .

I have times, about every 3-4 weeks, I will take all my watches off of their winders and out of the watch box and polish them all. I usually do this while watching a game (football, hockey), or a car race.

Otherwise, if I wear a watch more than 3 days in a row, I will take the time to give it a thorough cleaning.

I wish I had enough to develop a routine, I only have six so far and only two of those are autos.

We only have one car now so I have to take my wife to work at 8 AM, Monday through Friday. When I get home, I brew a fresh mug of coffee and take it into the loft where my few winders are stored. I make sure all the watches are still running and that none with hard to set complications have stopped. This takes but a few minutes so it isn't a big deal. I hate to re-set moon phases, day and date combos and the like so this short task eliminates the need for that most of the time.

On the first Monday of the month I fully wind all automatics not on winders and set the date and time as needed. Most are stored in the 12 watch boxes Lior used to sell from time to time so the task is not hard to complete. I pay very little attention to the quartz powered watches unless I plan to wear one that day. When that happens I will make sure all in the box are still running and that's about it. The winding process usually takes about an hour so Pink Floyd breaks the silence and monotony.

I have a six watch box on my chest of drawers in the bedroom that holds the current rotation. When I change one of them, it goes into one of the cases in the loft and I bring the new watch down.

The routine helps keep me on a schedule and provides a constant reminder of what is in my dwindling collection.

my routine is pretty simple. As I am getting dressed each day and putting on my pants, shirt, shoes, etc, I sit on our bed and face my watch boxes and look at my watches. I literally think about what I am wearing, what I have going on that day, who I will be meeting with, what I will be doing at different times throughout the day, and then just see which watch "sings" to me. I love that moment when I just KNOW that I will be wearing THAT watch. I pull it out and then grab my polishing cloth and shine it up and slide it on.

Only then am I ready to go to work and start my day officially.
