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. And yeah, it is. What I really like about it has to do with the lining. 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. 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? I think you’ve got two targets here. 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?) 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. 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.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
