Custom Work

Antique pocket watches should be displayed proudly, and stored and carried safely.

We offer custom hand-made cabinets for display, presentation, and storage, and a full line of leather accessories to help keep you from dropping your favorite carry pieces.

Cabinets and Display Cases

Custom Pieces Made To Order

Show off your best watches in a custom-made display case in just about any design that you can imagine.

It could be a commemorative presentation box, a storage chest with trays, a mirrored wall display case, a cabinet for parts or glass crystals, a desktop piece with domes, or a portable watchmaker's bench - all with your choice of domestic hardwoods, finishes, hardware styles, and even lighting.

Leather Accessories

Braided Leather Straps

Prevent tragedies with these supple straps, hand-made from top-grain leather in your choice of lengths and colors.

Two-Tone Straps

We offer two-tone straps with either color as the accent stripe. Pick your combinations and don't ask how they're made. 

Bow Protectors

Perfect for those who prefer to use chains, because they prevent the metal-on-metal contact that grinds bows thin. 

Safety Straps

This strap has a built-in shock absorber that stretches to prevent your watch from being pulled from your pocket. 

Leapfrog Braids

A much more elegant way to tether your watch than a lark's-head knot with a standard loop or a bow protector. 

Brass or Nickel Ferrules

All straps and bow protectors are offered with a choice of brass or nickel-silver ferrules and matching split rings.
