I semi retired most of my quartz watches. By removing the batteries.⬆ Pretty much this.
To answer the second part of the question; I have over 100 watches. I only wind the one(s) I'm intending to wear that day; the others can have a rest (well, not the quartz obviously)
I do the same. At 3AM, I need a watch with tubes or strong, long-lasting lume to help my 0ver 70 y.o. eyes see if I'm running late for my 3AM old man's pee.Nobody ask when the watch wearing day starts. When you switch out the watch. Here lately, I switch my watch out around 4pm. Wearing it to bed and the next day until 4. Switching it out and repeat.
I'm curious...which do you wear to work? You have multiple strong contenders.I am currently limiting myself to six.
One I wear mon-fri for work, and then weekends and holidays I pick from the other five based on where I'm going, what I'm doing, and sometimes which one I haven't worn in a while.
