Storage options for collections with limited height clearance

Does anybody know of any options for watch boxes which are all drawer based?

I currently have a typical storage box with a hinged lid, but the location where I store my watches has very limited vertical clearance. I'd love to find a solution which stores 20+ (ideally more) watches, but all in drawers, so I could get more watches arranged in a smaller space with a 10 inch/25cm high clearance. Most 20 or 24 (or 36) watch boxes tend to have 1-2 drawers, then a hinged lid on top. Even if they box fits on the shelf, the lid can't be opened.

Alternatively, I'm very open to other options for storage which are easily accessible, compact, and do a decent job of protection of the watches.

Perhaps a bit of an out of the box idea but I found these on Etsy that you could line a full size  dresser drawer with a couple of these https://www.etsy.com/listing/979306098/xl-jewelry-display-stand-with-walnut-and?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=watch+organizer&ref=sr_gallery-1-17&frs=1&bes=1&sts=1&organic_search_click=1

Other options I've seen fit your bill is custom dresser drawers like below. You could commission a local woodworker\furniture maker just to make an insert for an existing drawer you have as it's probably not as expensive as we might think. Just have to source your own watch pillows

Nice ideas! Right now, I was thinking about having a woodworker commission something custom, but just trying to see if there's a better option.

This is going on a shelf - basically like a bookshelf (about 11"/28cm deep, 10"/25cm high).

I'm a fan of the custom route as it'll definitely fulfill your needs and getting stuff commissioned isn't as expensive as people may think relative to other designer furniture stores like West Elm or Crate and Barrel. But I get expensive is relative, I have dining chairs that I got custom made which came out cheaper than some designer stores

I guess as far as stock buy now options go you could just get like a jewelers watch tray type of thing if you're okay with not having a cover

I’m building a traditional lidded box now, my advice is to start with the watch pillows.

Good thing about open storage is that you don't end up with open slots or run out of slots!

I like the separation and protection afforded by using pillows and dividers, but I do agree, there is something to be said for not having slots to fill or run out of!
