    PSA: High Quality Luxurious Handmade Watch Rolls

    Hi guys.

    If you are like me and like to present your watches in a nice luxurious case then give this guy a try. You wonít regret it.

    I expect many of us on the forum have bought many watch cases and rolls over the years from Amazon and eBay etc - you know the low end quality stuff which serves a good purpose, but doesnít scream quality or luxury.

    I often liked the idea of storing my watches in a watch roll (that doesnít roll!) and also having a display mat or soft area to change straps etc all built in to the design.

    I looked for many watch rolls online and the only one that I could see that fitted all my criteria was one made by Bennett Winch - but I wasnít going to pay £600 for it!!!!

    Anyway, I have come across Kauffman handmade hex watch rolls who offer the same high quality and design for a quarter of the price! I have no affiliation with Kauffman, but thought credit is due where credit is deserved.

    These cases are serious value for money if you are the sort of person who understands and appreciates excellent craftsmanship, design and quality.

    Everything about it oozes quality - the button poppers snap and unsnap with absolute perfection! Extremely high quality soft leather outer and soft velvet interior. No nasty stitching on these.

    Here is a link to the website. The guys name is Kofi and he is a true gent!

    https://www.shopkauffman.com/

    I understand Kofi is also in the process of making some 4, 2 and single cases too (which I will also be buying!)


    Here is some photos of my 3 watch case, aka The Tegal, which arrived today:

    I put a post up earlier asking for a watch roll recommendation as I don't like how my watches sit proud in the wolf watch roll with the case tight against the watch face.

    This looks like it has more room inside

    That looks like a copy of the Bennett Winch roll, but somewhat cheaper.

    Edit. Just read the post and see you already know that.

    Good find - £35.00 shipping is very salty though, you're not saving as much after that factored in, plus you get a choice of colours.

    Damn right it is, and that's before you get to the "Pairing Notes" on their website!

    Now that you have this case how about dropping another Ä25k: "JLC Reverso Tribute to 1931; Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional; Rolex no date black dial Submariner; Grand Seiko SBGA011 Snowflake would never be out of place here"

    Just noticed you're in Ireland so that's probably why its £35 for postage

    These are seconds, hence the discount. Same guy, same shop.

    Makes sense - then you've the VAT/processing fee as the mustard on top regardless of where you buy it. Goddamn Brexit killing the watch trade.

    Thanks for sharing this, Mike - I've gone for the black. The seller is open to offers too, which make it almost half price. Beats carrying my watches around in some rolled up socks and the odd service case!

    Nice one - let us know how you find it with loads of pics - the 3 or 4 watch roll will be a contender if I upsize my collection

    I'm not seeing that on eBay - it says postage free

    Ignore me, just seen the answer a few posts up.

    Nice looking and practical. Not sure I would want to commit that size of wedge though having recently got an absolute bargain in the Wolf sale. And just how often have I managed to get away in the last year to use it?

    Ordered one of the discounted eBay ones today. He doesn't say so in the eBay listing but he has one more vintage brown left (I got the other) and he accepted an offer. Looking forward to getting it.

    Just ordered the last Navy one!

    Value wise compared to the ACM & Molequin they are a steal!

    I would say Burgundy. It's a very deep wine red. I'm in the conservatory so huge amounts of light coming in.

    Ordered one of the brown rolls on ebay yesterday and it arrived this morning, great service and only a tiny nick on one of the leather patches which could explain why it was discounted.

    The inner holders are fractionally too big for my wrist size, I can clip my watches in place but I'm worried it may stretch the bracelet, so I'm using a rubber band to shape them a to more relaxed fit.

    I also found the cushions to be a very tight fit for my bracelet watches (6.75in wrist). I've stuck them on anyway as I can close it, just tighter than I'd like. Hoping it'll ease over time. Now you have me worried that all my bracelets will stretch!

    I'm sure you'll be fine, mine are just under 6.5in and I really have to squash the cushion in, and you can feintly see the speedmaster logo imprint after!!

    I ordered the brown roll. The quality is superb for the price point. I have since ordered another one. I also asked Kofi about other products and he is developing a 4 watch roll.

    By the way has anyone come across a decent quality watch tray, similar to the the AD trays?

    I spoke to them today and they are working on a new design over the next couple of months so the cushion fits a smaller wrist. 6Ē is the minimum apparently and you need to squeeze the cushion hard to relax it a few times and then insert into a closed bracelet.
