Please, take the time to make your posts more easily understandable for us mere mortals. Some punctuation and a few deep breaths may help, shorthand posts are unnecessary.

My Wrist... ...I'll Babysit them for you.

I have found a nice looking ten watch box with a display window on the bay for a reasonable price. Certainly you can pay through the nose on some really fancy stuff if you want. Non display, and worried about their safty, then rent a safe deposit box for the year from your bank. Can't get much safer than that.

Good Luck!

You don't need an auto winder, Seikos are known to be in drawers for decades, and still start up with a shake.
Any cheap travel case will do if you just don't want them banging around.

Hello. I've been a Seiko dive watch fan for years and have owned about 8 or 9 over the last 40 years. I have had a couple that sat in a drawer for up to 10 years. A little shaking and its off to the races. One of the watches took about an hour to get right but run fine. They are not the best automatic but I can't think of a better one for the money. Also for a good cleaning I usually take it to the kitchen sink use some Dawn soap and the plastic bristled dish brush and they look almost new. The first one I bought cost me $69 in a wholesale jewelry store. They are very rugged and durable. Enjoy, JT.

Who makes that case and did you do the felt flocking yourself?
I love molded plastic cases - durable and cheap
I just have a plastic tub where each watch goes into its own bubble wrapped pouch

I just toss my watches in a drawer, the seikos anyway =) I pick which to wear by which one I can see closest to the top.

That's gorgeous...I was thinking about buying one of these as well! You're not helping! ;)
Two of my three sons were born in the city where Gerstner's are made (Dayton Ohio, USA). For each of their 18th birthday's I buy and restore one for them to put their junk in (tools, charger cords, game cartridges, whatever). I keep an occasional one as well when one doesn't come out well enough that I'd want to pass it on to them.

That's great...I spent a lot of weeks in Dayton when I worked in the auto industry. Loved the Pine Club the couple times I went! Cheers!!
