    Smile New watch case arrived today! Lots of pictures!

    So I wanted to buy a watch case that could hold all my current watches and have space for a few future ones. Just a few... yeah right.

    And I wound up buying a watch winder and a case from Acetimer thru eBay and here are the pics. Granted, a watch winder has nothing to do with Casios but I'll add a few pictures in for good measure.

    Now, I needed a case that could accommodate my PAW1500's 50.5mm face as well as my Seiko Orange Monster's width.



    The finish is AMAZING. Much better than I thought it'd be for such an inexpensive case.







    Notice the clearance between the bottom part of the case and it's lid. It seems large enough to fit even a fat Breitling!

    Will it handle my PAW?




    The "pillowettes" are made out of good faux leather and seem "pillowy" enough to give in case the watch needed to be tightened to fit inside.





    Seiko Monster test? Pass.

    Let's fill this puppy up with the rest of my G's.

    If they fit, all my others will too. The one thing that concerns me is the fact that most G's have a fairly "hard" curve coming from the watch in order to hug your wrist snugly.




    I placed my G-Shocks in there without much attention. Didn't really worry about the way they looked, but just wanted to get them in there. The "hard curve" in the watches definitely made it harder to wrap them around, but not bad enough for me to worry.



    Closed shot! Success!! Not only do my G's look... refined... but the rest don't look so shabby either!!

    Now, a quick look at the winder.

    Same great finish. Fits 5 with 2 on the winding mechanism. The units are actually Acetimer branded, but it still looks GREAT.









    Oh and the unit also can run off batteries and came with an Euro adapter as well as a US adapter.

    Cheers!

    Those look very similar to mine. Go figure. My only difference is I got the quad winder with 5 watch storage.

    Congrats!

    Good work on the cases Sose. I have been looking for a winder for a while, but havent pulled the trigger on anything. What did you pay for the winder, if you dont mind me asking?

    I like it that both look as if they have the same finish. Good choices.

    No problem!
    I paid $85 for the winder. I have never seen nor used one before so I need to observe it for a whie and see just how well it does.

    So far so good. I really like it.

    Thank you!

    They look redder in person than they do in my pictures and the stock ones I saw. But the finish is BEAUTIFUL. It's really well made. And you can't beat the price.

    Is the locking mechanism brass or silver? Thanks.
    Buying more watches does not buy you more time.

    Looking for: Seiko SCVS013; Citizen PMX56-2811; Citizen Campanola CTS57-0701.

    Brass. Not exactly my favorite material for this but I can't have it all, can I?

    Is that your PAW I saw in there? I've held out on a box because I didn't think the PAWs would fit. I see that they do. Guessing there is enough clearance that the lid does not tap the watch face? Now that I know my fat watches will fit..... you, you.... ENABLER!!!
