Well ive been searching for a watch box for awhile lately. Its been a daunting task as Ill never pay top dollar for anything. Call me frugal or cheap but I just feel better when I get a deal. Most boxes though for watches just didnt fit my needs. I am putting a cap on the amount of watches I can have at any given time to 10. Most watch boxes that only hold 10 watches are just single layer. I wanted something that would hold watches plus have a drawer for other accessories. Finally found this on ebay and they price matched it to qvc plus another $8 off. Its a mele & co box and is very nice. I would recommend it to anyone who has smaller wrists as the pillows fit a 6.5" sized watch perfectly. It has plenty of clearance unless you wear extremely large watches. It has a real glass window instead of alot of the plexi glass you see. Total price to my door was $42.80 Fit and finish is excellent with a nice hinged lid. Overall Im super satisfied with the new home for my collection.

Packaging was not very encouraging.


The previous box was wrapped around this box as more of a sleeve with no packing material


atleast there was some give with the styro corners and minimal packing


I love burled oak

They do make good products, Mele and Co., at good prices. I bought a different one of their products as a gift. I think you'll be very pleased with the value. And I'm the same way when it comes to accessories like boxes, winders, etc. The more you spend on accessories, the less you have for watches. I did invest in a good security safe though (paranoia). But I don't think the new box will disappoint.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah so far I love it. I wouldnt recommend it for guys with really large wrists though as the pillows are small. I have a 6.5" wrist and the pillows fit perfectly without crushing them or having the watch fall off. I think anything over 7" and your watches will not sit securely on the pillows.
