We’ve seen all sorts of branded products coming from various watch sites over the last year or so (no, nothing in the works here at WWR that I know of); and while Worn & Wound have had other items in their shop, this one really made me take notice.
You might be thinking, so what, it’s another tool roll. Â And yeah, it is. Â What I really like about it has to do with the lining. Â It’s made of ultrasuede, which means that when the roll is unfolded, you’ve got a decently sized work area to change out straps on a watch without having to worry about scratching up the case or crystal of the watch in question.
And that’s another nice detail on this watch – they added a smaller pocket to fit in a spring bar tool. Â This is in addition to the four slots they’ve got in place for holding watches or any number of straps.
So, who is this for? Â I think you’ve got two targets here. Â First off, is someone who wants a dead simple way to travel with some watches and a few straps to be able to swap things out on the go (say, month long road trip?) Â Second (and this is where I’d fall), is the person who has their watches in a storage case, but needs a good way to organize all the various spare straps into a single spot.
Sure, at $125 (here), it’s not an impulse by. Â If the construction of the canvas, leather and ultrasuede is as sturdy as the pictures make it seem, though, this could be a nice add for any watch collector – or a good gift for the “watch guy” you know.
