    Evening everyone.

    What recommendations are there for watch storage ‘boxes’ - i’m thinking of the multiple watch veriety. I’ve seen a few nice ones from the likes of Wolf. I’m not after a multi winder. Morenof a simple tray that keeps the watches safe and dust away.

    Many ideas or suggestions gratefully received.

    Thanks.

    I have a simple large kitchen plastic box with a few travel pouches which each have several zipped pockets (normally 3). Nice soft linings, drop in a silica-gel water absorbent sachet and good to go!

    Only snag is finding the watch I want. Could take opening every pocket in every pouch :oops:

    Yea it is the ‘where is the watch’ challenge that i’m trying to solve so after something where I can open the lid, glance down and just pick out the watch infancy wearing on a particular occasion. Currentlybhave a growing collection of woden and ‘cardboard’ boxes - all of which are nice and all, but take up a lot of space (yep, destined for back of the wardrobe I fear, the seasoned watch colelctors wete right lol). But having to flip the lid to find which watch is in which box os becoming a pain in the ****.

    I like the simple dyi approach of travel pockets, but I need the ‘solution’ to solve the watch hunt guessing game. :D

    I’m in the same situation and have some in boxes and others in a roll, but basically out of space.

    My next party trick is to convert an old Samsonite aluminium briefcase i have into a watch box. I currently store my watches in their pouches and boxes in there anyway, but will convert it to a divider tray set up with cushions. It’s actually the perfect depth and size to be converted I just need to find the right way to do it.

    The briefcase is very 90/00’s and was the model James Bond had in Die Another Day & The Workd is not Enough......and is why I wanted it, especially at that time is was 19 and just moved into an office job wearing suits ::screwloose::

    I’ve also seen like old tea bag boxes converted into watch boxes before as well.

    Permanent marker pen? I am also thinking of experimenting with my label printer and fabric adhesive.

    I use these. Available from John Lewis a few years back & pop up on eBay from time to time.

    It really is. IMO, it is the nicest 1887 ever produced and it was one of the first back in 2010.
