    Default Watch storage and display

    I have now settled on how I'm going to store and display my Accutrons. Being rather paranoid about getting burgled I ruled out putting them in a cabinet. I decided to make my own boxes. There are are similar sized boxes on the market, but made out of MDF and with glass tops. These have
    individual cushions for the watches which take up a lot of room. I therefore decided to put the watches on bolsters. It is quite easy to get the watches on and off as the bolsters have foam around a wooden core. So far I have completed two identical boxes which have Sydney Blue Gum (Eucalyptus saligna) tops and Monterey Cyprus (Cupressus macrcarpa) sides. When I have filled more boxes with serviced watches I will post pics on this thread. DSC02032.jpgDSC02034.jpgDSC02031.jpg
    How about other members showing us how they display their watches?

    Oh my, beautiful! I am green with envy. Here is my "sock drawer" and the "annex" where my watches sleep. You just might inspire me to better organize the collection.

    That my friend is an obsession. You need help. I suggest you start by passing on some of those watches to us poor unfortunate collectors.
    I'm sure they will be more than happy to shoulder the burden.

    Very nice home made displays vim203!!! I'm liking these displays. This one is mine and its abit old as I have made a few sales and purchases but you get the idea. Each black box holds 20 watches. My six Astronauts and several Accutron Boxes are not in this pic. Been alittle busy this year.
