Scattered within threads throughout WUS are photos of watch collections stored in watch boxes, dedicated drawers, on top of nightstands, and even in some very unique pieces of furniture that people have build from scratch or modified to their needs. I thought it'd be fun to have a centralized place to post photos of your storage solution. It might be helpful to others shopping for a watch box or maybe even provide inspiration to go out and build your own.

I started by dedicating a drawer in one of my wardrobes. I filled the drawer with foam and cut out slots for individual watches, using the cutouts as "pillows".

This solution worked for a while, but as my collection grew I needed more space. In addition, the drawer isn't working out for my solar/atomic watches. I'm still using the drawer as configured but also have started to accumulate watches on top of the wardrobe. The solar/atomic ones live on a window sill so they can charge and sync each night.

I now have a glass topped 24-spot watch box coming in from Mr. Bezos (this one https://www.amazon.com/SONGMICS-Display-Organizer-Leather-UJWB024/dp/B00NHM75HO). It should be here Friday and at capacity within moments.

Let's see some photos of how you store your collection!

Not my picture and its currently not available(Bought from here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MV3E5PY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 )

But this one is mine, I really like it.

I also have this one put away, I have never used it, bought it and while I was waiting for it to be delivered I found the one above that fit a bit more watches so I ended up never using this one.

I have one of these, which is pretty decent but probably not much different from the dozens of others on Amazon. I've since outgrown it by a large margin and looking to add a 24-slot box similar to the OP, but I don't like the footprint they take up. There's a 30 watch vertical box I like on Amazon but it's pricey: https://www.amazon.com/30-Display-Hanging-Storage-Organizer/dp/B00B7NHLP6

Vertical is a good idea gsmayes, saves some space.

Doc, those look nice. I like the incorporated winders.

Yay new hobby space in the basement. Watch storage/display area/hang out with watches and watch related stuff around.
Super cool space! I love all the watch related artwork and small clocks.

I had a thread awhile back on how my very handy, 75-year-old aunt helped me convert a little 6-drawer wooden cabinet into a watch cabinet.

Here's a video of the finished product:

Things I learned along the way: The watch slots could have been MUCH more square, instead of rectangular. Because when you put a watch on a pillow, it fits a square shape. I probably could have had an extra row in every drawer. But with a second piece of that foam in each slot, it works like a charm. A couple of years later, and it's working flawlessly for me.

Only now I've basically got it filled and am filling the smaller watch boxes again with cheap watches. Maybe time to make another one? (What's that? Time to sell some watches? Geddaddaheyah.)

No matter the watch, I still use these small parts cases from Home Depot with seat foam from Hobby Lobby.

This looks like a great way to cheaply store our stuff, clear top great for solar, plus modular so easily stacked. I've got a plastic toolbox stuffed with a lot of mine, then a load scattered on my desk (pick a number from eight to fifteen normally) and a standard type of box that holds ten of my better watches.

You two pulled this off way nicer than I did! Both look awesome.

That's a great idea!


Made from wooden trays with a plexiglass lid covers cut to size on top...
Nicely done! Looks great.

You gotta love them Swedes!
Mind you, the room needs decorating, perhaps they can get involved??

K.
Love this! Actually seeing you post these photos a few weeks ago (maybe months, idk anymore) in another thread was part of my inspiration for this thread. I even tried to convince my wife we needed that cabinet from Ikea haha
