Every time someone asks; which watch box should I buy for more than a handful of watches? My immediate response is the Worn & Wound Windup Shop Tool Watch Box.
Major item out of the way; Yes, this box costs $300 before discount codes. Yes, one can buy cheap boxes that do the same job, hold watches. But much like watches, the devil is in the details, and in the case of most watch boxes, you get what you pay for. I am also a believer that one's watch box should be as equally cool and nice as the watches it holds. I use a different/larger watch box for some of my nicer pieces, but these are great for compactly storing and displaying up to 12 watches.
I've had a few inexpensive watches sitting homeless as of late and I have a couple of new pieces coming by the end of the year. Throw in the fact the Tool Watch Box is constantly sold out, so when W&W recently launched a green one, plus the fact that I had a coupon code, I knew it was time. I placed the order on a Sunday and it was at my house by Wednesday.
Like the other boxes, this is a beast weight-wise, coming in at over 9 pounds, almost twice the weight of a comparable Wolf box. Constructed of heavy-duty steel, with strong metal latches and handles, there is nothing about this box that feels cheap. The handles make transporting watches easy, which for me is essential as they are easy to pick up and store in a safe when I leave town.
The pillows are nicely done in tweed and stay firmly in place in the fairly deep mahogany dividers. I do not know if I would carry it fully upside down, but overall it is a very snug fit. I have a 6.5" (16.5 cm) wrist and I would guess even up to 7"+, they would still be snug.
Overall, I have experimented (then given away) with all kinds of boxes for storing as well as displaying watches and can safely say this does both very well and better than most boxes you will find. Hit me up with any questions.
Note: I have no affiliation with W&W, but like many of us, visit the site and enjoy the podcast.
