This is a cute watch case. Smaller than I thought it would be, but it serves it's purpose. Definitely a starter box. Perhaps for a small closet. The craftsmanship is great. It looks like it's very well made and of good quality. The interior is designed to keep watches from scratching and it holds them very well. The case arrived at my home less than a week after I ordered it. And it was packaged very carefully to prevent damage. If you are looking for a small, well made watch case, this is the one for you. It comes with a key, so little children can't get to the watches. Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase.

Nice box, but more than one problem. First and foremost is that while there are instructions on how to open it and those work, the right-side button doesn't slide at all. Only the left-side button will slide, and then the box can be opened, but not far enough for the lid to stand on it's own. One has to hold it open with one hand while using the other to get the watch in. This is a problem because watches won't sit right on the provided cushions. If one has a really large wrist, the problem is compounded because the cushions aren't large enough to accommodate large bracelets. One of my watches refuses to stay in place as it continues to slide down the side of the pillow only to disappear between the pillow and the side of the case. That watch is smaller (than Invicta chronos) Tag Heuer, by far my most expensive piece. So pillows aren't large enough. Also annoying is that the key for the lock, which I accidentally discovered under one of the pillows simply does not fit the lock, and I tried about 100 times, with the key both upward and downward, since it's impossible to know which end is up. I can close the case, but the whole close-lock mechanism is seriously chintzy. I wish I'd gotten a different box.
