1. International Watch Seminar, £1,450
Every watch lover wants to be able to take apart their watch and, ideally, put it back together again. It’s easier said than done, and we’d suggest you refrain from taking a screwdriver to your own collection. Instead, the guys at London’s International Watch Seminar will guide you through the whole process. Even better, you end the weekend course with your own custom timepiece. Available at internationalwatchseminar.com.
2. Wolf Memento Mori Double Cub Watch Winder, £544.99
‘Remember you will die.’ Not the most pleasant of phrases, but one that many a person has taken to heart as an affirmation of life. So, to make sure you can tell just how much of that time is ticking away, Wolf has created the Memento Mori collection. This double winder in red is complete with red-eyed skulls and some rock ‘n’ roll leather work. It’s also available in black but the red is just more… alive. Available at wolf1834.com.
3. Modalo Imperia Watch Box, €449
Keeping your watch collection in order is a pain past a certain point and to stop watches spreading to every corner of the house, a box is a necessity. This lovely piece from Modalo turns a necessity into a luxury. The black Macassar finish is superb and the strip of glass shows off the regular favourites. Best of all, it can hold up to 16 watches. A bigger collection than that is an addiction. Available at modalo-shop.de.
4. Bennett Winch Watch Roll, £550
Every watch collector needs a watch roll. It’s a fact of life. Not only do they keep the more precious pieces safe, but they’re perfect for travelling with. In the case of the new Bennett Winch version, it’s also one handsome accessory. Rendered in black or (our preference) brown leather, the striking octagonal oblong is lined with alcantara for a nice, luxurious finish. This may well be the finest watch roll around right now. Available at bennettwinch.com.
