Finally I can publish an article about some very talended italian guys and their company called Wonder Watch Rolls!
Travelling with your own watches is always a great challenge, because you have to protect them and above all not to clutter up too much space.
The guys of Wonder Wrist Roll make beautiful watch rolls and clutch to carry safely (and also with elegance) any type of watch.
All their products are entirely handmade and in Italy but above all they are made with extreme care for details and on specific requests of customers.
It is also possible to insert the initials of your name, thus creating an absolutely personal product, as well as unique.
On their site there are different types of products according to the needs of each collector.
No matter if you need to carry only one watch or 5 or 10 watches, you will always find a product that will meet your needs.
I was surprised how much choice there is behind their products and especially the attention to detail.
Another very important thing about wonder watch rolls is the price, certainly competitive for a product made entirely by hand!
The colors and the many options with which you can make these products allow you to have a very wide choice and I think that for a collector is absolutely a must have.
Once closed the watch roll does not take up much space and can be safely stored in a suitcase or bag.

I just discovered on Instagram a nice and interesting German brand called “WatchPillar” specialized into wooden watch accessories.
As you know I always want to discover something special to talk about here on my blog and when first saw this product I said “What? Let me check it!”
I understoodd immediatley that it was a watch stand but WatchPillar is based on a luxurious and handmade idea totally different from the standards or classic well-made watchstands.
First of all when you see a product like this you understand that % of wood used is really important and this makes you feel something “alive” and really important, the purpose is to admire your watch!
Another important aspect of the WatchPillar is the glass dome and this is the first time I see something like this that could be fitted into your house, making your watch much more admirable.
WatchPillar – the project
Everything started from Alexander (the inventor) because he looked for a way to highlight, admire and honour his watches while storing them safely.
After Alexander talked with his two colleagues Steffen (product design and make) and Salome (marketing) they decided to create a true brand and make it a protected trademark: name, logo and design.
Everything started from the letter…P and they worked from there, on the brand name and the design of the watch stand as well as the logo.
Of course as you can see from photos and understand from the brand name, the pillar is used as inspiration for design of this incredible product and logo derived from appearance of the pillar.
The wood is not lacquered and thus isolated from the user, but the material is ‘alive’, the touch and feel of the wood’s structure is soft and smooth by using oil & wax.
WatchPillar – Why Buy?
There are a lot of details and there is a clear striving for perfection (we are talking about German guys).
The WatchPillar is the perfect stand to admire your timepiece and to have a very cool design object in your house. It emphasises your timepiece, not itself and it does not distract from the watch with a vast support part.
First of all despite it may seem like a classic watch stand it has so many details and here are my favourite ones:
- The Dome
It protects the watch and acts as a closure and round optical counterbalance against the rectangular main plate
- Pointy corner and compact version
Precisely pre-machined dowel pin holes allow for a 45° rotation of the insert inside the base and this results in a different, slightly more daring look:
- Screw in rubber pads
Instead of using cheap and unevenly mounted DIY store pads under the WatchPillar®, they molded the screw-in rubber pads on their own by partially sinking a screw, head first, levitating into a negative form that is subsequently filled with rubber.
This will make the customer better understand that we are talking about real ingenuity and of course time-consuming handcraft.
- Possibility to choose/customize your WatchPillar
There are 2 signature variants of the WatchPillar, the dark and the bright one.
Additionally, the individual version can be configured with different color combinations and no or individual logo milled into the wood of the round base insert.
All of them use noble walnut and maple wood that is crafted from literally a trunk up to the delicate and fine result.
You can check it here.
Here you can see the dimensions:
- Width: 19 cm (7.5 in)
- Length: 19 cm (7.5 in)
- Height: 22 cm (8.7 in)
- Height without dome: 17 cm (6.7 in)
- Weight: 1.3 kg (2.87 lb)
- Diameter: 14.3 cm (5.6 in)
- Height: 16.0 cm (6.3 in)
- Weight: 0.3 kg (0.66 lb)
There is also the possibility to customize your WatchPillar with your logo creating a very cool 3D effect thanks to 0.9 mm cutter tool and then filled with clear resin by hand, subsequent polish and oil/wax.
- The treatment of the wood
The wood is hand-polished with ultra-fine grain and then treated with a dedicated 2-step system of bio-certified oil and wax made in Germany.
The resulting surface is silky smooth and a joy to touch and feel. As a plus, all substances have certified food quality.
Another interesting thing is the angle of the rod giving nice viewing angle and also that rod being the only visible metal element that holds the support part in place and formed like semi circle is aesthetically pleasing, geometrically perfect but at the same time still practical to avoid contact with the watch / bracelet.
You can also order single parts of the WatchPillar and re-configure it as it is not glued but fully de-mountable as shown below.
Another important thing is that WatchPillar provides a pair of WatchPillar-branded gloves, which can be used to lift and clean the glass dome.
My finally impression is that we are talking about a very interesting project made by truly passionate people and the cost (less than 500€) is absolutely congruent with the ratio quality/price.

As you know I’m always looking for new very good quality products to show you here on my blog and today I just discovered a really interesting brand from UK called Luxury Watch Rolls!
This brand was founded at the start of 2022 by Jamie (30 years old) and he is now preparing to start the Kickstarter campaign (may 23) for these very useful accessories, absolutely great for travel!
Jamie began to notice that most watch rolls simply weren’t that good. They looked great in photos, but then in real life the quality was lacking, not in keeping with the luxury feel of his watches.
He therefore decided to create his own brand of handmade genuine leather watch rolls, which he would be proud to store and display his watches in!
Luxury Watch Rolls – design and quality materials
The innovative luxury design of these watch rolls allow watches to be secured in a high quality, entirely handcrafted roll.
Each watch roll has a flat base allowing for secure placement on any surface.
The exterior is made of Italian vegetable tanned leather, and each edge is hand oil painted in the French style.
The use of this style of edge finishing removes the possibility of frayed edging providing the highest durability.
Contrasting deep brown interior is the softest material for maximum protection against scratches.
Each watch pillow is removable on a sliding rail for easy access.
Each watch has it’s own individual compartment that floats inside the watch roll providing the greatest protection against damage.
Luxury Watch Rolls microfiber watch pillows are compressible and flexible, creating a secure and accurate fit for watches of any size.
If you have a smaller wrist, depressing the pillow will not put additional strain on your watch bracelet or watch band.
Each watch pillow is individually removable, and slides in and out through a sliding rail system.
This unique system allows your watches to be suspended within the roll and held firmly in place, while not touching any other watch.
The flat base of the watch roll prevents any accidental rolling or tipping while using or displaying your watches.
This shape allows for your watch collection to be displayed while the case is open or closed.
The watches are secured within the roll with silver snaps, sewn into the roll. They are not visible from the exterior.

Today i want to talk about Zanneti Watches Accessories!
In the hearts of Zanneti they are watch collectors.
As their collection grew Zanneti started to hunt for watch storage solutions.
It soon became obvious that watch storage was too expensive, was not thoughtfully designed and more importantly, watch rolls did not feel as good as the watches they stored.
Why couldn’t watch storage feel more like high-end watches?
Zanneti spent years trying to figure out the answer.
These guys started to learn about material quality and searching for craftsmen.
They went everywhere from sweat shops in Dhaka, leather schools in Italy, family workshops in France, Thailand and Singapore to world trade shows.
They learned something new from every single experience and decided to compile our journey into Zanneti.
These people are makers of high quality watch storage solutions and watch accessories.
Zanneti Watch Accessories – a different concept
The concept of Zanneti has been derived from polish.
Depicted in the logo are two swords representing the cutting edge and a shine depicting polish.
The aim is to produce watch accessories with master level handcraftsmanship, and a level of sophistication that resonates with high end watchmaking.
Everything They produce, from the quality of suede and leather to the experience of using the buttons echoes with the best practices of horology.
Zanneti believes that they have finally been able to create something that matches the look and feel of a Swiss watch.
They have just launched two new lines featuring their 4 watch and 3 watch holder.
The 4 watch holder is made with Saffiano Leather and Italian Suede.
Their 3 watch holder is our flagship product and is made from Calf Leather from France and Italian Suede.
As every Zanneti product is made in limited numbers to preserve exclusivity, they have limited inventory for sale at www.zanneti.shop and the shipping is worldwide.
Please check out their site HERE if you want to buy one of their products!
