I received a really great watch for Christmas. I do not consider myself to really be much of a watch-wearer (I mean, these days almost everyone just uses their phone as a time piece). However this wasn’t just some fancy-pants Cartier or Rolex watch – no this was a vintage time piece that my great-grandfather wore in World War One. I knew that to keep this watch in all of its antique glory I would need the appropriate travel watch case whenever I went on the road.
And as a traveling encyclopedia salesman by day and men’s organizational blogger by night, I need to take that watch on the road with frequency. As in, I spend about three quarters of my lifetime on the road, and the rest in my small bachelor apartment in El Monte, CA. So I need a travel watch case that not only provides unmatched protection, it also has the strength to last through repeated uses.
Luckily Ragar, a company that makes some of my favorite men’s storage items, has an amazing Leather Travel Watch Case that is perfect for my needs. This travel case is made with genuine leather, giving it an upscale look that is almost the equal to my early 20th century watch.
The case has two metallic snaps that keep the travel case firmly closed. There is nothing more distressing to a traveler then opening the valise and discovering that your watch has slid out along your steel toed Doc Martins! Who knows what kind of scratching damage can occur from just one minor slip-up? The snaps on this travel watch case deftly prevent that from happening every single time.
Well this travel watch case is perfect for my needs, and I am glad that I found it. I have a long trip ahead of me into Ohio, the Winter Vortex and the great unknown. Wish me luck for I may never see the sunny skies of Southern California again.
