This may seem simple at first glance, but storing your collection is something you should think of before buying your first timepiece. Of course, you can use the original box that comes with your watch but the downside of this, depending on your situation, can be space, accessibility, visibility, quality, and safety. For that reason, we suggest investing in a good quality watch box, watch winder, watch roll, safe or a combination of those. All these options allow you to safely store multiple watches that are easily accessible, but answer some different needs and budgets.
Many watch boxes and winders have a glass window allowing you to admire them when they are not on your wrist, and they will also keep unworn pieces in a clean and dry place, important for the longevity of your watches. Watch winders are great to keep your watch ticking while not wearing it and helps you avoid the trouble of constantly setting the time on your watch. The bonus here is that it is a great way to keep your watch on display!

Of course, if you have an extremely valuable collection, or some watches that do not get much wrist time, it could be wise to invest in a safe. You can find safes in many shapes and sizes, so whether you have a single family heirloom watch, or too many to count you can find something that suits your budget.
If you are the type of person that is always on the go and love to carry a variety of watches with you when you travel for business or pleasure, you can opt for something like a watch roll. A watch roll is a great way to keep multiple watches in a compact, sturdy, and portable case, secure and accessible while on the go.
Another suggestion, like a watch box, is a drawer insert designed to hold watches. This can be a less expensive alternative if you do not need to always have an eye on your watches, and of course you have the drawer space.
