My Russian granddad, a retired circus clown who defected to Panama, left me a watch that smells like Cheese! How do identify the brand of the timepiece?

Buy some waterproof watch, then you will not require much more maintenance towards it.

Another concern that many collectors do not think about when amassing a collection. The recommended every 3 year cleaning and overhaul on a sizable collection with diverse complications will be a significant ongoing expense.
