As your passion for watches grows, so will your interest in all things that surround the watch world. Travelling with multiple watches will become commonplace, and reading up on the world’s horological masters will become your new preferred way to unwind. Rather than scouring web forums or relying on those god-awful Amazon reviews, we’ve opted to assemble some of our favourite watch-related goodies that a luxury watch collector should have and we will tell you about those.
A watch roll solves the problem of how to travel with multiple watches without hiding things in socks or packing each and every one in its individual soft case. There are ample options out there, but the sturdy, shock-proof construction of the Discommon watch roll sets it apart from the rest. The brand is known for its high-spec, low-volume creations that have included machined aluminium drinkware and straight razors.
2. Watch Winder and Safe
There comes a time when it’s no longer okay to leave your fine timepieces resting on the dresser or nightstand, and depending on the volume of storage you need, Boca do Lobo has an appropriately sized safe with built-in programmable winders to keep your favourite timepieces safe and ready to go.
