16 Best Watch Boxes for Men 2023

Depending on how far down the rabbit hole you are, a watch box might sound like something completely indispensable, questionably necessary, or anywhere in between. But even if you find yourself on the naysayer side of the spectrum at the moment, there's a decent chance you could use one in your life—assuming, of course, that you wear a watch with some regularity. (And if you don't, what exactly are you doing here?)

The thing about true watch lovers is, well, they love watches. That could apply to a $100K Patek, a $10K Rolex, or a $100 Timex. So while, yes, a watch box is a good way to keep your investment-level timepieces protected and organized, it'll do the same thing for starters, beaters, and all other various and sundry everyday-ers. A scratch on the acrylic crystal of a Q Timex tossed thoughtlessly in a drawer can hurt just as much as a ding in an Omega, emotionally at least. Plus, you love your watches, right? Don't you want to know where they all are and be able to gaze upon them laid out before you? Sure you do! So get a watch box.

What kind of watch box is a slightly trickier issue, because so much of it comes down to sheer aesthetics. We're not talking about travel cases or rolls here, nor are we talking watch winders, which keep the movement of your automatic watch going while it's not on the wrist. We're talking about a box that sits on your dresser and holds your watches. It can be a finely wrought creation, pieced together from the most luxurious of materials, or it could be something you got on Amazon for less than the price of last night's dinner. That's a call you'll have to make for yourself, and no one here at Esquire is going to fault you for either decision. What will raise a few eyebrows is, after reading all this, you still don't get some kind of watch box.

Bring order to your life. Fight the forces of chaos and entropy that suffuse this strange universe of ours. Get the watch box.

Room for all your watches—and your sunglasses (and rings, bracelets, etc.) too.

Wolf is one of the biggest names in watch cases, and this one—lined in silk with a tempered-glass lid—is a damn fine intro to the brand.

And to round things out, one more in black, this time in croc-effect leather and lined in supple suede, courtesy of the folks at Rapport London.

For something small and neat, Leatherology's watch box is perfect. It holds four watches and has an easy snap-button closure for accessibility and security, plus, it easily packs into your suitcase for travel—just grab it and go.

Taking inspiration from Ralph's vintage car collection, this sleek and luxurious watch (and cufflinks!) box features supple quilted leather and matte hardware. It's basically Rolls Royce for your timepieces.

Bold and eye-catching, this Italian-made leather watch box puts your timepieces exactly where they should be: at the center of attention.

Made of reclaimed wood and lined with velvet, this one's environmentally friendly and a little fancy.

Your mechanical watches aren't the only things that need some TLC. Give your digital timepieces a little love with this display case, handmade of out of durable compressed wood and finished with side grooves that offer easy access for charging cables.

With a vintage feel and 10 compartments, this is more of a presentation in and of itself than it is a storage case.

If your tastes skew a bit more rustic, this wood-and-burlap option is a steal.

A super budget-friendly option in black faux leather with room for six timepieces and a glass top for a little extra convenience.

For under $30, you can get room for a dozen watches.

This watch box might be as much as one month of rent in a New York City apartment, but, hey—leases last a year. Your watches last forever. This sleek case holds six of your favorite timepieces in an elegant full-grain leather case.

This 10-slot case can hold watches up to 52mm in diameter. Unless you have (very) sizable wrists, that's probably too big of a watch for you. But, hey, it's nice to have the option.

This watch box is all about understated luxury. Oh, and you can monogram it, too.

This plush-cushioned watch box has a clear lid, so you can see up to eight of your favorite pieces on display all the time.
