I love a leather case, me. I have long wanted a nice travel/display case.
I do not make a habit of reviews and until now, I have only endorsed my friends Paul’s opener. I have no financial interest in this or any other product I write about, just that if something is good enough for me, then many readers would want one too.
I have wanted a watch case for years, something I can go to a watch meet with and discuss watches without throwing bubble wrap and Ziplocs about. Something that also gives me pleasure to own and use.
I saw this on Instagram, with this company in Turkey and fired off about $600 across the ether without even doing any due diligence. I was so exited. Then after a few weeks of silence, I realised I had only an initial email and no case. And I didn’t even know anything about the seller except he was in Istanbul. (My wife reckons that Istanbul is a great leather source). Worried I sent off an email, and the charming proprietor wrote back to say he had sent the case….but to another customer by mistake. He immediately shipped another, but with eight instead to of 10 slots.
He promised to send another tray imminently when he had made one. (Its on its way.)
When this arrived I was thrilled. The case is very solid. The tray fits well, and can be removed for storage in a safe. The lip of the case is not stepped, and this is the only thing I would change – but as it is I am happy because the case shell is very rigid and solid.
The case is made with distressed vintage style leather, and it appears to all be of fine work and top materials:
Here is the website, and the gentleman I wrote to is called Adem.
As I said before, I have no affiliation to this company, I just love his cases.
