Look, if you’re like me, you have a problem. It’s a compulsion. An itch you need to scratch, lest you be driven crazy. My name is Sebastian, and I’m a watch collecting addict. This predicament I find myself in has presented a secondary challenge. How do I elegantly store all my watches? Now a watch box organizer, like many other items in our consumer economy, comes in many shapes and sizes. Some are works of art nearly as much as the watches you store in them. Others are, well, and I’m being generous with this description here, complete and utter trash. Of course, when you’re buying things online, it’s sometimes difficult to discern, which is which.
Well, fear no more, my fellow timepiece addicted friend. I’m here to help. Having arrived at yet another crossroads in my watch collection activities, I am now in the market for a new watch box. Like with many items in or tangentially related to fashion, the key thing to keep in mind is that taste and aesthetic design is highly subjective and personal. But given my experience with watches, and frankly, running this website, I think I’ve grown to have a good feel for what watch collectors want when it comes to storing their watch collections.
While I’m personally looking for a 10 watch box with a drawer at the moment, I know that some of you are looking for 5 watch cases, while others yet are looking for a single watch box. So no matter whether you’re looking for a watch box that will beautifully display and safely keep one watch or you’re looking for plenty of space in a massive 40 watch case, I’ve gone to the trouble to dig up the goods. These are what I believe to be some of the best, most affordable, and practical watch boxes in the world. Some are a bit more masculine, while others are decidedly a bit more feminine. In any case, I’m sure you’ll find just the right watch box for you. (And hopefully, I’ll find the right one for me during the writing of this article).

3. Triple Tree - Watch Winder for Automatic Watches
If you’ve got more than a few automatic winding watches kicking around in your collection, I salute you, good sir or madam. You’ve reached what some would consider the upper echelon of watch categories. Automatic watches which rely on a mechanical movement are of the type that is simply powered by the natural movements of your arm as you go about your day while wearing the watch. Unfortunately, because they tend to be on the expensive side, most people like to put them away into the safety of a beautiful watch box for the night. And hence, here, the problem presents itself.
Without any movement, automatic watches stop telling time and then bring you the added annoyance of resetting to the correct time if you don’t wear them for anywhere between 30-40 hours. Since you’re a watch collector and won’t be wearing all of your watches at the same time, this will be common. Enter the automatic watch winder boxes. These are enclosures designed to keep your beautiful mechanical watches going while presenting them in a gorgeous light. Besides serving this function in four winding spots, this magnificent case from Triple Tree also has six additional spots for your Quartz or otherwise powered watches.
- 4 Winder spaces
- 6 non-winder spaces
- Wood shell + piano paint construction
- Foam watch pillows
- Acrylic glass
- Silent motor
- Dual power supply (AC + Battery)
- Built-in LED illumination in the case
- Stylish stainless steel key for locking the watch case
- Stainless steel hinges
- 4 Winding modes available

4. Glenor Co. - Watch Box for Women - 15 Slot
Perhaps the reason for giving this watch box the “for women” moniker is because that’s just what you have to do sometimes to differentiate yourself in the market. Or perhaps it has something to do with the slightly feminine features of the lock buckle. In any case, I don’t see any reason why this watch box, which is more than capable of carrying up to 15 watches, wouldn’t work for a man’s watch collection as well. With a beautiful metal accent, this Glenor Co watch box’s elegance comes through in several ways. First, the PU Leather exterior is smooth and has some nicely crafted belt stitching throughout. Next is the built-in mirror that nicely shows off your entire collection contained within the box. Each watch cushion is finished in the same PU leather guaranteeing no hair or lint.
- 15 Large compartments
- Magnetic snap closure
- Built-in mirror
- Gift-box included

There are watch boxes, and then there are watch boxes from Wolf. This company continues to blow me away with the quality, inventiveness and design of their watch cases. This ten-piece box is handcrafted from fine vegan leather with intricate skull embroidery throughout the entire box. Its name and artistic expression, Memento Mori, serve as a reminder of the inevitability of death. So you might as well enjoy that watch collection while you can!

There’s no concern about that with this unique and compact five watch box from Case Elegance. Perhaps its standout feature is an all-glass lid with no surrounding bezel, which helps it differentiate itself from all other watch cases with glass tops. Held in place with anodized-nickel plated hinges, the class is easy to open and ensures that your watches remain dust and dirt free. The slanted wood helps create better viewing angles, and the case is available in either a rich espresso wood finish or a cherry wood.

Thankfully plenty of manufacturers have created elegant watch box solutions to keep your luxury timepieces in sync and precise. This finely finished watch box has the capacity to store and keep two of your mechanical watches running while displaying them in a carbon above a carbon fibre patterned PU leather interior.
The extremely quiet motor will keep your watches going while offering five program settings. The LED blue light brightens the case up nicely and, when closed and locked, serves as a stunning display case for some of your most precious watches.

17. Case Elegance - Solid Wood 6 Slot Watch Box
It would be downright irresponsible of me not to include another mid-sized watch box of the two-toned variety. That’s because I know many people don’t necessarily own a large watch collection, but they do have a few watches they want to store neatly. And perhaps they also have dreams of adding to that collection. That’s one reason, but also because I’m kind of a sucker for two-toned watch display case designs. This sleek and modern box has a pine top lid and a dark black base that will let you store up to six watches.
- Tempered glass and pinewood lid
- Solid aluminum handle
- Brand: Case Elegance
- Model: Solid Wood 6 Slot Box
18. Rothwell - Watch Box with Valet Drawer for Men
This mid-price watch box masquerades as a product that you would think should cost far more than it does, which is why I wanted to include it on this list. Able to store up to 12 large watches, the Rothwell Watch Box also contained a gorgeous three compartment slide-out drawer that can be used for additional storage of various items, including sunglasses, watch straps, and more. The wooden frame is wrapped in PU leather, and the inside is outfitted with elegant crimson red suede fabric. Plenty of space, high-quality materials, quality construction, see-through glass top, and it’s sumptuous. For this price, what else could you ask for? I mean, I could think of a few things, but then I’d be getting downright greedy.

20. Bamford Carbon Fibre Watch Roll
And as promised, to finish off this list, I present to you, Bamford’s immensely popular Carbon Fibre Watch Roll. Sure, it will set you back a few G’s, but that’s hardly anything if you’re a watch collector looking to complement his or her watch collection with a truly unique watch storage solution. Sure, most luxurious watches come with their own finely crafted box, but they’re generally not designed to be packed, carried, and endure the bumps of globetrotting travel. This combination of real carbon fibre, aluminum, and Japanese ceramic glide rails that assist the roll’s function makes this an incredible watch travel case. Designed to hold up to four large watches at once, this made in the UK carbon fibre watch case is truly one of a kind.
- Real Carbon Fibre and Aluminum construction
- Lined with neoprene
- Japanese ceramic glide rails
- Holds four watches
- Brand: Bamford
- Model: Carbon Fibre Watch Roll
