It seems anecdotally that you’re either a watch roll person or you aren’t. Pop into a major watch forums, and you’ll read posts asking other watch lovers: Which watches should I bring with me on my trip?
Typically, the answers will go something like: a Seiko SKX007 for the beach, an Explorer for daily activities and an Omega De Ville for a nice dinner out. It’s a watch collector’s fantasy to have a different watch for a different setting. In comes the watch roll, a nice case for travel that can protect your prized wrist accessories through airport security and look good when it’s unveiled inside of your teak interior ocean-front suite.
And then there’s the watch collector who just brings his G-Shock for his travels because it costs very little to replace and can tell you the time in any timezone much better than any mechanical GMT watch. Mr. G-Shock still needs a watch roll! We’re here to convince this guy or gal that bringing more than one watch with you is the way to go. Worried about loss? That’s what watch insurance is for.
The Everest Watch Roll offers a new take on the watch roll
We introduced the Everest Watch Roll because we saw an opportunity to improve on an existing product in the marketplace. Don’t get us wrong. There are many fine watch rolls for different styles and tastes. Our friends at Worn and Wound have a beautiful version made of waxed canvas with Horween leather trim for $150. Italian luxury house Bottega Veneta offers theirs in the brand’s signature leather weave for $900.
Ours sits somewhere in between and is really suitable for Mr. G-Shock because it works wonderfully for at-home storage because of its flat base. It also has refined looks that matches well with modern interiors, which makes Mrs. G-Shock happy.
Maximum protection and accessibility
Of course, we think ours is a handsome looking piece with a fine leather exterior, but we also are very proud of our unique Rail Sliding System that lets each of the three watch pillows slide in and out of the case without compromising the structural core of the roll. The three compartments float inside of the roll, allowing for maximum protection. Ours goes for $375 and comes in either Saddle Tan or Navy. Both have contrasting interiors made of our plush proprietary material that protects your prized watches.
Of course we have an interest in enabling you to justify purchasing a watch roll. You’ve invested so much time, energy and money to cultivate your watch collection. Give your favorite material items a home they deserve. And, yes, the entire family, well at least your immediate watch family, deserves to share in your travel experiences.
