Looking for a Better Travel Case

Post by Guest on Wed May 18, 2011 8:45 am

I currently have 2 travel cases. One I got from SWI and the other from Stan at Panatime. I really am not real happy with either. I like the SWI quality a bit better. It has a better zipper, better materials, but it is a better case for strap watches that can lay flat. The Panatime is not as good of quality, but it has pillows (sort of) and is better for SS bracelets that I don't want to rub and scratch up by lying flat.
Any suggestions on a good travel case that can hold either? I am looking for something that fits 4-6 watches, is not bulky to pack and not very expensive (under $100 would be great).

I use some of these. Find them handy. Not sure if it's what you are looking for. If you look at ebay they go for as low as $15.

I own one of those, too. Great travel watch cases, and I think I got mine off ebay for around $20.

Yeah, I was really looking for something a little different. My problem with the SWI is; I don't like it for some of my watches that I don't want to lay flat (like SS because I don't want the SS to rub together and scratch) or for my watches that will not lay flat well because of various reasons.

As much as I don't like Croton, my brother used to have a travel case that came with a watch he bought. It fit watches using pillows and I really liked it, but I haven't seen one for sale in well over a year now.

Make a smaller version of this. Pelican case with pluckable foam to customize the slots any size you want. I used a water "noodle" pool toy for pillows. Not exactly non-bulky but indestructable. I had a zippered case like that and the zipper broke-making it useless.

For 4 - 5 watches the best thing to ever ever come out of the Croton brand is their travel case. It is really a great travel case, and affordable. You can call them directly and buy them or some sites have them like here - http://www.zulutimezone.com/Croton-Leather-Travel-Watch-Box_p_286.html

I use mine all of the time when we travel and it is the safest one you will see and can handle all size watches, etc.

The Croton case is great. That and their Alligator wallet and accessories are the only things from Croton I'll endorse.

I just picked up a variation of the croton case for $20 shipped. Very nice too im very impressed. For that price I couldnt pass it up even though I didnt need it. The only difference with mine is the ring compartment is in with the main watch section and sacrifices one of them but adds another strap watch holder. Same thing, different layout.
