While automatic watches are ahead of their time in a technological sense, traditional watch cases like the ones we outlined in this article (and everywhere we looked) don’t really account for those men out there that own a wide array of watches including those both automatic and not.
Should you be looking to store your automatic watch in any of the cases for an extended period of time (more than a week), then your automatic watch may have inaccurate time keeping which will require an adjustment before you head out the door.
