    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'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 -

    These are ideal for watches on bracelets that lie flat

    The small. I'll see if I can find a large one and picture it - I'm sure I've one somewhere...

    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.
