Respectfully, I see none of the traditional woodworking skills of the Black Forest region in that example box. Also, the lid looks like a composite? The lid not being hinged could also be a problem when used in transport or stowage?
I love the designs of your watches and was planning on getting one sooner or later, but your old styled metal box seems way more useful and attractive to me.
Laser cut or silk screened logos or designs would also help make it more attractive imo, that and a hinge system.
Obviously just my opinion.
Btw; after re-reading your post about the design of the new box I understood why it looked sort of familiar. It looks like a wooden version of my Apple "Mini" computer's case.

I like it! but it would be even better with logo.
I would prefer a logo as well!
I am not a fan of the new box. If the box were made of solid wood instead of MDF or press board and had a hinged top I would think differently.
A logo would help the box's presentation immensely. All of my furniture has a lightly embossed logo filled with some sort of stain or ink. I cannot imagine that this could not be done to the boxes for a reasonable cost.
I dislike it. Will be a next step is cardboard box?
while this box is nice, i wish more watch companies, rather than giving an elaborate box, provided something actually useful- like a watch travel case. Not only would it be cheaper, but it would serve a purpose rather than going into the closet.

I always like the old case. It looks so different than a lot of other offering. However, seeing the new wooden box in person. I must admit it feels a lot more premier. The weight is right & the details are great. I suspect many used to use old metal box to carry watches travelling but I'm sure very few would with wooden one. Looks and feels nicer but lost a bit of practicality.
Saying all that, it might be a good to change it. The old one has been almost a decade.

I like the idea of a watchroll. A nice cotton or canvas watchroll would be more useful , take up less space and could form the basis of a new line of Stowa branded accessories for their online store.
