    Stickley A&C furniture rocks, I have some of their pieces. U have good taste (looks like the Onondaga finish)!

    Haha, good eye! The finish is Onondaga (#32)

    Stickley makes great stuff, I am a huge fan of quarter sawn oak and mortise and tenon joinery.

    Very well-made, too. That solid q-sawn oak weighs a ton, I have the small Roycroft cellaret, I use it as a liquor cabinet, I can barely move it, weighs at least 100 lbs.

    If you ever make it to New Jersey, try to visit Craftsman Farms, the Gustav Stickley museum in Morris Plains. They have incredible pieces of his work.

    Honestly it looks too bland and boring. If you could etch a monogram on the box and sort of round the edges a bit it would look better. At present the box above looks too...raw. I like simple but this is a bit crude. Dont get me wrong I am a Stowa fan.

    Also one picky poisnt - if the idea of the switch to the new box is partly about sustainability then aluminium is one of the most abundant elements on earth, and as a trade off based on sustainability how kind on the environment are tge chemicals contained inmdf ? A fairly large wooden box is less efficient to transport than a similarly sized cardboard box or a watchroll with a cardboard sleeve. I think it's an interesting idea, and I like tge local and xraft ethos Jorg references in hisnopening post but the box has never been the strongest part of the Stowa package. I quite like Laco's leatherette box because it can be used as a travel case and is nice and simple. I hope tje box evolves in to something more befitting the brand.

    First: I don't mind what sort of box, as I collect the watches not the boxes.
    Second: I also would prefer Laco's leatherette box......................................as long as Stowa watches are in there,

    I saw the photo of our esteemed moderator, Mike S., holding that case (w/container box on the table) in the Watchuseek report of the Laco factory visit just posted. Looks like a very practical & useable approach to packaging.

    My tastes are simple: I am easily satisfied with the best. (stolen from Winston Churchill).
