Eight Essential Watch Enthusiast Tools and Accessories

As watch enthusiasts, we understand the value of a well-crafted timepiece. We appreciate the intricate designs, details, and engineering that come with watches and take pride in our collections. However, owning a watch collection comes with its own set of responsibilities and requires the right tools and accessories. We will explore some of the essential watch tools and accessories that every watch collector should have to properly care for their timepieces. Whether you have just started your collection or have been collecting for years, these tools and accessories will help you maintain the quality and value of your watches.

Watch Box

A watch box is an excellent accessory for collectors who own multiple watches. A watch box keeps watches safe and organized and helps prevent scratches and damage to the watches. A good watch box will have individual slots or compartments for each watch and will provide adequate protection from dust, moisture, and other environmental factors.


Spring Bar Tool (an absolute must for our Band & Bezel friends!)

A spring bar tool is a must-have tool for changing watch straps or bracelets. It is used to compress the spring bars, which allows straps or bracelet pins to be removed and replaced. A high-quality spring bar tool is inexpensive and easy to use and will save you time and frustration when changing watch straps or bracelets.

Watch Strap/Bracelet Changing Kit

A watch strap/bracelet changing kit contains a wide selection of removal tools necessary for changing watch straps or bracelets. It is a tool kit composed of a spring bar tool, screwdrivers, and essential watch repair tools needed to change the strap or bracelet. A strap/bracelet changing kit is a basic watch tool kit for experienced watch enthusiasts who like to change their watch's look frequently.


A loupe is a small magnifying glass that is ideal for examining the fine details of a watch. It's a simple tool for repair professionals that can be used to check for scratches, inspect the movement, and identify any other issues that may need to be addressed. A loupe is an handy tool for watch collectors who want to ensure that their watches are in excellent condition and working properly.

Polishing Cloth

A polishing cloth is a soft cloth used to remove minor scratches and blemishes from a watch's surface. It can also be used to maintain the watch's shine and appearance. A good polishing cloth is soft and gentle enough to not cause friction or damage the watch's surface.

Watch Winders

Watch winders are essential for collectors who own automatic watches. Automatic watches require movement to keep the mainspring wound and the watch running. A watch winder is a device that keeps the watch wound and running when not being worn. It helps maintain the watch's accuracy and prevents the lubricants from drying out. Watch winders come in a variety of styles and sizes, so you can choose one that fits your collection's needs and budget.

Microfiber Cloths

Microfiber cloths are a must-have for any watch collector. They are ideal for cleaning and polishing watches and help prevent scratches and other damage to the watch's surface. Microfiber cloths are gentle, and effective at removing dust, dirt, and fingerprints from the watch's surface without leaving lint or scratches.

Watch Travel Case

A watch travel case is an essential accessory for collectors who frequently travel with their watches. It provides protection during transportation and helps prevent damage to the watch. A watch travel case is usually small and compact, making it easy to pack in a suitcase or carry-on bag.

The tools and accessories listed above are essential for every watch collector. From watch boxes to watch winders, each tool and accessory plays a crucial role in maintaining the quality and longevity of our watches. By investing in these essential tools and accessories, watch collectors can add a layer of insurance that their watches stay in excellent condition and even retain their value.
