John, I also meant to ask your opinion on something else. The gentleman that bought my 16520 Daytona new in 1999, is a collector. He wore it about a dozen times and than put it away until now. Is there any harm to leaving a watch inwound for long periods of time? I am not a watch winder fan. Thanks

In my opinion, you'll want to wind it and let it run about once a month. That will ensure the continued and even distribution of lubricants in the movement.
