Some of you jive turkeys know I like modern, Swiss Made Hamilton pocket watches. After picking up a couple more last year it was time to find a proper way to display them.

I found this amazing solid oak case on the "Bay" around Christmas and it sold. Early this week the seller put another one up and I grabbed it. Super fast shipping from California. Solid, oak construction. I can't complain one thing about it. It looks like it could have come off a hardware store counter in 1911. I have a note in to the seller, but suspect he makes these by hand.

Here it is:

It has a nice locking, loading door in the back:

Hands down, this is the nicest watch accessory I've ever purchased. I'm very happy.

For those of you wondering... yes there are some open spaces. I plan to fill the bottom row with a solid yellow, red, and green gold piece from the turn of the last century. I have plenty of time though and will wait for the perfect pieces.

I wish my pal BarnBuilder was around to see this. I miss him.

Very nice craftsmanship and great looking pocket watches :Thumbsup: I didn't realize you liked pocket watches that much.
Question: Do you ever dress up in a 3pc suit and put one of the bad boys in your pocket vest with chain attached to button while cruising in the vintage Rolls? Complete with top hat of course when you exit to dine at a exclusive joint?

Thanks Art and BigL. Had a nice correspondence with the maker. He does make them by hand. HS made cases for 26 years.

Impressive. I'm glad to see something made by hand in 2021.
