Happy new year to all my watch fam. May it be a healthy, wealthy and happy collecting 2023.
My wife gave me a lovely watch box for my Christmas present this year. Its an another watch box for my massive still growing collection. This hobby is a serious addiction, one for me for 30 years!! And it's getting worse.
I am as passionate about watch boxes as the watches itself sometimes. I've probably have purchased all the watch boxes out there from budget to high end and probably sold the majority of them when i have finished with them. In the last 5 years or so, I have religiously used 2 brands that I can not fault. They are expensive but I swear by them now and not purchased anything else since.
The 2 brands are scatola del tempo, which are an Italian brands which source the best leather and handmade the most beautiful boxes ever. Not only are the materials the best of the best, the quality of finishing is out of this world. What i particularly like is they the watch sit very snug into the slots and only the watch cases can be visable. There is not room for the watch to drop-out or even move. The aftercare of this brand is unbelievable as I have issues and they rectify it very very quickly.
The second is a Turkish brand called borsphus leather. Again, handmade and personalised leather watch boxes. They are beautifully finished and I particularly like the petra box range.
I believe if you invest so much time, effort and finance into these toys, they should be housesd in something equally as nice. Just my thought. Please share what boxes you are using or recommend at all budgets. Be interesting to know what the community is doing.
Remember watches are rarer than money 💰 happy collecting in 2023 and I look forward to seeing all purchaes from you all in the new year.
You can't buy time, but you can buy how you want to read it. Before you make a purchase, remember that the watch is rarer than money. Happy collecting
