Vintage New-Old-Stock (NOS): On the wrist or in the safe?

By 23rd May 2019 13 Comments

Here is a difficult dilemma that is a tricky question for every passionate watch collector.

Mimo tank from the 1930s: NOS with Sticker and Tag

Finally you found some vintage watch you have been hunting for long and as luck strikes, you actually got a literally unworn, actual New-Old-Stock example with sticker, hang tag and and in perfect condition.

But was it actually luck? Now you will start to wonder. Can I wear the watch or do I keep it in pristine condition as a safe queen?

I will put it on the wrist but be very careful.

What would you do? Put it on the wrist or put it in the safe?
