I have the new style lock washer. I reused it since after I torqued the nut, the flat on the nut was on a unused portion of the lock washer so there would be no residual stress from being used before. If the flat had lined up with the "used" portion, I would have removed the nut, rotated the lock washer and torqued again.

Reality does not always develop in a way we expect it to.
