Whether you are a seasoned collector of watches or have recently become a watch aficionado, it goes without saying that you will need a good storage solution for your watches whether they are automatic, manual wound or quartz watches. For this purpose, a watch roll is the perfect choice. On this page you will learn all about the functionality of watch rolls and how to choose the right one for you. You will also find our reviews of what we consider to be the 7 best watch rolls on the market. Read on to learn all you need to know.
Why You Should Use a Watch Roll
No matter the size of your watch collection, your watches deserve proper care. A watch- or travel roll is designed to protect your watches while keeping them organized and ready to wear. Many of us develop the bad habit of simply shoving our automatic watches into a sock drawer next to our tie clips and other accessories. If you want to take good care of your watch, however, we advise you to unlearn this habit. Your watch is far better off protected in a watch roll than left to slide around at the bottom of a drawer.
A watch roll also gives you the advantage of eliminating clutter. And instead of leaving your watches around and potentially misplacing them you always know where to find them. As a bonus, a watch roll is an aesthetically pleasing item that you don’t have to put away. Place it on your dresser and enjoy displaying your watches in style. And perhaps most importantly – it is a highly practical way to keep your watches safe when travelling. You don’t have to worry about how to pack your watches to protect them. Just grab it, and you’re ready to go. This way you are also able to bring several watch options with you; a dressier watch for dinner or meetings, one for daily wear and one for active pursuits. This way your watch roll ensures that no matter where you are, you never have to compromise your style.
Once you have decided that a watch roll is a good storage solution for your watches, the next step is choosing the model that best suits your requirements. To help you navigate the market we have compiled a list of what we consider to be the 7 best watch rolls currently available on the market. Our list includes a variety of designs and price points, allowing you to choose the storage best suited to your personal tastes, requirements and budget.
