The better half
|We design and
manufacture watch boxes, watch cases, watch displays, and other types
of boxes. Because of this, we can do what most others can't.
We can customize a box for you or we can custom make a box to your designs.
Our wooden watch boxes
are made by furniture and cabinet makers...
We normally ship by the postal system using Priority Mail. In instances where an item is bulky and a distance away from us, UPS may be less. In those instances we will advise you. To calculate shipping, look at the weight next to an object and go to the United States Post Office website (click on logo below) to calculate shipping with our zip code of 48350.
For most items, please temporarily give us a call.
For quantities of more than 1, or for colors and other special attention, please write in the "comments" area of the form.
Also, this is a Small business. Therefore we do everything by hand. That means the computer does NOT charge your credit card when you send an order. We do it all manually when we ship.
Also, there is no server out on the internet where your credit card is stored for hackers to get into. We merely receive a secure e-mail onto our home computer when you order.

Our specialty is making custom wooden watch and pen boxes. We can design and make a wooden watch box from scratch from popular woods, like Mahogany, Cherry, and Walnut. Exotic woods have been used, too, like African Padauk (pronounced "pa - duke").
Standard design wood watch boxes and pen boxes are available at more economical prices. These consist of designs which we have made in the past and normally have readily available for faster purchase and delivery.
Leather covered wood watch boxes and pen boxes offer another style of watch box. These accent most home and office decors very nicely, with tans and blacks. You can get wrist watch boxes that are for traveling, as well.

In addition to watch boxes, we make watch display cases.
There are both wristwatch and pocket watch display cases. These
also serve as wrist watch and pocket watch carry cases.
Leather wrist and pocket watch cases are one of the first
items we manufactured. These work well for storing your collection
in your dresser drawer or a safe deposit box. They are also great
