I bought a brand new Patrimony reference 81180 in white gold back in February this year and have been keeping it in the very nice box/display case. Since it is a manual wind, I have to take it out and wind it up every day. The pillow that you strap the watch to is actually a fairly tight fit and recently I have noticed that the pillow has been fraying already. The material seems to be quite sensitive to that and I am not sure if there is any way to prevent it. Does anyone have this problem? Do most people use their dispay box in this way or do you tend to just use a different type of box for everyday storage. I like the display box but obviously don't want it completely destroyed in a very short time.
Below are a couple of pics to explain what I mean. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
