Yes by our loved ones, I mean our dear watches. We all need a home to stay in and our watches are of no exceptions, well at least their home are in watch boxes and not expensive houses in Singapore.
If you’re into collecting watches, it should be of no surprise that understanding quality watches aside, there comes a time you have to understand the place they’ll spend most of their time in.
Here are the top 5 places we’ve found that offers the best options for watch boxes.
1) Nomad Watch Works ($39 onwards)
The first place on our list has to be one of the most frequented place for Singaporean watch collectors due to their wide variety of straps they offer at an unbeatable price.
NomadWatchWorks started off purely as an online store and they’ve managed to open one retail store at Tampines Mall just last year. It was very well-received as many watch enthusiasts of all ages patronise the store really frequently due to their constant promotions and they offer strap changing services for free when you purchase any of their straps.
Due to their reputation of providing quality straps at an affordable price, many customers requested more accessories and products in complement with their watches thus, they started bringing in new products since then and has brought in watch boxes too.
Depending on your collection, they offer a watch box of 6 slots up to 20 slots in both black and brown.

2) Orient Crown ($161 – $2,021)
If the watch boxes over at Nomad doesn’t hit the spot, try visiting one of the specialised watch winders and boxes company in Singapore, Orient Crown.
They’re located in Marina Bay Sands and they offer the craziest watch winders you can imagine, from 32 slot watch winders to a whole watch winder cabinet (which costs $40,000 by the way if you’re wondering).
But don’t worry, their watch boxes comes in a much friendlier price.
Friendly, however, is still subjective.
Their 6 slots watch box comes at a price of $161, which is 5 times the price when compared to the 6 slots box offered by Nomad. The box, however, has a lockable front lid and has a lacquer coated wood finish.
If you have a larger fleet, I really do hope your wallet is twice as large!
3) Misterchrono ($115 – $8,187)
If you ever thought Orient Crown’s watch box is high-priced, Misterchrono’s highest value watch box could probably get you a Tudor or an Explorer 1. Don’t be astonished though, remember this is their most expensive watch box.
One of their best-sellers is their waterproof watch box which is able to store up to 8 watches. Personally, I think the build of the watch box is extremely solid and could probably handle a high-impact drop (don’t take my word for it, it’s only my opinion as I have a few friends who own this)
And with a price of $120, it isn’t really that bad after all.
If you’re not into such rugged cases, they also offer a leather travel case for 5 watches at only $115. Check out their website here if you’re interested!
4) Wolf Watch Box ($49 – $335)
The next company on our list is WOLF, a 184 year old company that specialises in watch care.
The interesting thing about this company is that they invented the patent for counting turns per day (TPD) for their watch winders which ensures the watch stay wound but not magnetising the watches.
If you have no clue with regards to how watch winders work and if they are actually good for your watches, take a look at this article written by Mark which he dived deep on the pros and cons of a watch winder, click here for the article!
Watch winders aside, they offer really affordable yet good quality watch boxes. Their 6 slots watch trays which comes in 3 different colours costs only $49 and you are able to stack the trays!
If you’re not fond of a tray, just add $6 and it becomes a 6 slots watch box with a glass lid and ultra-suede lining.
They also offer a 15 slots watch box with a lockable front lid and when compared to the other brands on our list, this is by far one of the more affordable options.
5) Trendhim ($89 – $249)
Last but not least. Trendhim is a company that focuses on selling men’s accessories and jewelry, they offer a large variety of products from watches to sunglasses and the one that’s not to be missed, their watch boxes.
They are the only brand on this list that offer a single-watch-box which is really interesting if you travel with 2 watches as you’re able to switch it up and keep the other in place.
That’s not the reason they are on this list though.
If you’re talking about bang for the buck, you really should consider checking out their 24 slots watch box! It’s priced at $349 yet it holds 24 watches. It is a briefcase-styled watch box and comes in a black faux exterior.
It may not have all the additional features such as a front lid lock or ultra-suede linings but if you have a ton of watches or perhaps share your storage with your loved ones or family members (this time I really mean your family members) it will probably fit the bill.
