Leather watch cases are an elegant way to keep watch over your watches. If you're a serious collector who owns more than one luxury watch, it's worth splurging on a high-end case to keep your timepieces secure. Secure from what? Well, you never know. Some houses are filled with the sound of tiny feet. And with tiny feet come tiny hands. Then there are family pets, who would never knowingly destroy your watch. Then again, they didn't knowingly rip up your couch either.

Leather watch cases also keep your collection safe from water, oil, and other potentially damaging substances. All it takes is for one drop to break the seal around your watch's face for the movement to grind to a halt. Ditto that on a tumble from a dresser, an armoire, or a storage shelf. There are simply too many potential perils you can't think of to combine with all those that you can think of.

Details on Leather Watch Cases

You can always kill two birds with one stone and find leather watch cases that double as watch winders. Many of the finer manufacturers even build their storage cases with four, six, even eight separate turners to accommodate the varying mechanisms from watch to watch. Keep the spring barrels of all your automatic watches fully charged while you're sleeping, relaxing, or just wearing a different watch.

If you plan on spending several hundred or even several thousand dollars on a top-of-the-line storage case, be sure to invest in one that comes with a lock and key. This is a small precaution, but one that can save you misery down the road. Just make sure you keep the key in a place where you can readily find it once a big occasion rolls around and it's time to get dressed to the nines.
