    Good quality individual watch boxes for storage

    I'm looking for recommendations for good quality watch boxes for housing single watches while stored in a safe. These need to be not too large for obvious reasons but also allow the watches to be stored without risk of damage. Thanks in advance.

    For a low-rent but entirely suitable solution, these are great. Might not be good enough for someone who keeps watches in a safe but an excellent, cheap option.

    I use case budi type cases and a watch roll.

    I'm a big fan of the Tissot service cases. Can sit in a safe, safe deposit box or backpack very easy.

    If you want strength, a hard shell spectacle case is ideal. Inexpensive too.

    And in the event of a robbery less likely to attract attention.

    Seems a good idea but the watches will rattle about inside and risk damaging themselves. Perhaps I could buy some foam to wrap the watch around.

    Depends where your safe is. If its in a dark and unheated location then cold and dampness may become a risk to your watch.
    How about inside a zip-lock bag/sleeve along with silica gel sachets? Prevents scratches also.

    I've just bought a couple of these for storing watches in the safe. They're nice and compact and pretty well made. I'm happy with a watch roll for watches on normal straps with a buckle, but I prefer to have something with a cushion for storing watches that have a bracelet or deployant to avoid scratches.

    Watchpod FTW

    Removable foam inserts prevent any movement, and they come in single, double or triple configuration. A big improvement over Casebudi.

    There are generic pelican cases for about a fiver each that are excellent quality
    Come in a variety of sizes
    Got half a dozen from a firm called Solent plastics in Romsey Hants
    Canít recommend enough!

    I use one of these for transporting a spare watch back and forth to work:

    With a bracelet / leather strap-

    Or for Sinn fitted with a silicone / large clasp that won't lie flat -

    I use the cases Rolex use to transport their watches in. I got mine from a helpful dealer but you can find them on eBay. Tudor also do a similar one.

    Following on from the watch roll thread, I investigated options for my larger watches, especially those like the MM300 and MM200 which do not like to lie flat when on the bracelet. I've used the older style zip up watch boxes which Eddie used to ship his watches, which are great, apart from the above mentioned.

    Matthew's description sounded just what I needed and so I ordered a test one Watchpod from Amazon, specifically for the MM300. I'm delighted with it, since it fits so well, the upper and lower cushions protect it snugly inside the rigid nylon case. I was so pleased with it, I've ordered another for the MM200.

    I saw that review, and it's completely the opposite of the Watchpod I received. Two foam rings, a good zip and a hard nylon shell.

    Here it is with the MM200.

    Good shout, thanks. Going to order one myself. Lowest price ever on Amazon at the moment too according to CCC, under £10: https://www.amazon.co.uk/WATCHPOD-St.../dp/B06XJPVH7N

    Got to keep an eye on the seller you're buying off on Amazon, annoying how they mix the reviews together. ImportsDirect are the current default seller and they have explicitly confirmed in the Q&A that all their WatchPods come with foam inserts.

    Always found the pod style ones posted quite effective for lighter duty storing.

    Let me know if this is against the rules / spirit of the forum and Iíll remove - only posting as relevant - Iíve launched the Renitor water and shockproof single watch case on eBay / Amazon - designed to accommodate larger watches inc Ploprof / Panerai.
    Full foam interior w/insert to hold watches snug and hard dry box exterior for extreme protection.

    I just ordered a couple of these. They look great and offer good protection whilst not taking up to much room in the bag. Thanks for sharing.
