There aren’t many newsflashes likely to knock this coming weekend’s Royal Wedding off the front pages of the newspapers, but this could be one of them.
Following a successful launch of watch winders in 2016, JUVO has taken the historic step to offer contemporary watch boxes, designed for watch enthusiasts by watch enthusiasts, and offered at affordable prices.
JUVO has collaborated on the launch of two gorgeous limited-edition watch boxes with Dutch artist, Teun van Heerebeek, famous for his watch illustrations. Teun launched his website Watches and Pencils in 2017.
“For me, Watches and Pencils is an ideal stage to display things that are of interest among us watch nerds. Through my illustrations, I can bring certain things to one’s attention and discuss these in a more creative way. Sometimes there is a clear message or question, while other times the illustration is just a tribute to an iconic watch.”

The Desk Diver Watch Box
The collaboration has resulted in two watch boxes, limited to 100 pieces each. The first watch box has a piano white lacquer finish with an illustration of a Desk Diver. Those in the watch collecting fraternity refer to a Desk Diver lightheartedly as one who wears a dive watch, but normally gets no closer to water than the office water cooler.
Many are the Rolex Sea-Dweller wearing executive armed with a watch capable of withstanding 1,200 meters of pressure, pretending that scratches and dings were caused on sharp coral at 200 meters, whereas they were sustained by an out of control printer at the side of his desk. That’s a Desk Diver.
The Flying Flieger Watch Box
The second watch box also has a piano white lacquer finish, but with an illustration of a pilots watch with the white triangle at 12’o clock, easy-to-read hour numbers and minute markers, and steel blue hands with a white luminous coating. It’s a tribute to iconic pilot watch brands like IWC and STOWA which hopefully will be stored in the case. Both the boxes will retail price at $299 USD.
The Macassar Watch Box
A regular Macassar watch box retails at $249.
The watch boxes are available for pre-order beginning Friday, May 18 at 12 AM EST directly from the JUVO website. Delivery is scheduled for August.
