Okay, so you’ve amassed a pretty decent collection of prized wristwatches. Good on you. But with the last year being cooped up in your quarters, there’s a real chance that you’re doing more stock taking in your walk-in closet than flexing out on the streets. (No biggie as the rest of the world is probably doing it with you, including Drake.) It’s also now that you’ve come to realise that with ownership of expensive wristwatches come great responsibility. That means regular servicing as well as providing regulation housing are part of the deal (leaving it on your mahogany desktop doesn’t count). For the latter, you’re in luck because today’s best watchmakers are also assisted by some of the top specialists in timekeeping storage units so that your wares continue to achieve its pristine condition. Where to look? British label Wolf ranks high on the list of options, with their expertise closing in on nearly two centuries. Whether it’s a single storage watch winder for the newbie or an eight-piece version for the new collector, Wolf’s continuous study on luxe materials and tech ensures your pricey wristwatches aren’t sitting in cheap fake leather or get over-wound. Now, it has unveiled one of its biggest launches in the last year which is also spot-on in terms of trending colour. Christened British Racing Green, this 10-piece collection of watch winders, boxes, and rolls look right on the money with the royal green hue. There’s a story behind the use of this colour too; Wolf was inspired by illegal racing that took place in Ireland in the early 1900s and this serves as a cool reminder of those days where traffic lights were merely considerations. Wolf has also taken liberty to apply fine pebble grain vegan leather (a nod to the 1964 Aston Martin DB5 owned by the CEO’s father) which matches perfectly with the hand-pressed gold foil lines and hardware that highlight each storage unit. Lastly, don’t be silly by banishing these plush storage units to some dark corner of your closet. How else are others going to be green with envy?
