Collecting watches is becoming increasingly popular and regardless of the brand and price tag, all watches deserve to be stored in the best possible way.
With a watch box, you’ll get a great way to store and display everything from small to large watch collections – and you ensure that your most precious timepieces are kept in great condition. We have selected the best quality watch boxes in wood for the watch collector who prefers a natural material that will last for years!
Before we give you our top-10 of wooden watch boxes available on Amazon.com, here’s why you need a watch box – or why you should get a box for the person who has a lot of watches and nowhere to store them properly.
Why Should You Have a Watch Box?
Storing your timepieces in a watch box will ensure that your watches are protected from dust, dirt, humidity, bugs and other unwanted elements. A sealed box will keep your watches in the best condition – especially if you ensure that each wristwatch is securely fastened around a pillow and fixed into its own compartment.
To avoid any scratches, the inside material has to be clean, soft and made from a safe material that will not damage any delicate materials.

Choosing the perfect watch box
In addition to safety features, the perfect watch box has the right size and is made from high-quality components. If you change your watch often, it’s important to select good-quality materials so you can open and close the box many times – and maybe also lock the box with a key for extra security.
We also recommend choosing a box with a few extra spaces than your current watch collection so you have room for new additions. Finally, you should also consider where you place your box: should it be something for display in your home or something you prefer to keep in a more private space?
For any of your needs, a wooden watch box is a quality option made from a natural material that will look good for years when cared for. If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly option, choose a sustainable wood type and avoid tropical and rare materials.
You can look for the FSC logo for official certification of the wood’s sustainable source. Please be aware that some boxes can have a ‘wood-finish’ or ‘wood-style’ design which can be a type of veneer placed on various materials (If in doubt, always ask the seller about the material).
