Your new favourite travel companion: the Bennett Winch watch roll
Handmade in England, the stylish Watch Roll is the perfect blend of form and function
What do you get the watch lover who has everything? When birthdays, Father’s Day or holidays roll around each year, this is the question we find ourselves asking for the refined gentlemen in our lives. If, like us, you’re looking for something that stands out – something more creative than a good whisky, more practical than jewellery, more stylish than suitcase – then it’s time to turn to Bennett Winch.
The British brand was founded in 2014 by Robin Bennett and Robin Winch, who sketched their now-famous Weekender bag on a napkin. Six years later, Bennett Winch is the epitome of perfect form and function, showing us that our luggage doesn’t have to be generic to be secure, or unsound to be stylish. Instead, their blend of traditional skills and robust materials, gorgeously minimalist design and sheer level of cool allows you to feel like one of the Jameses – Bond, Dean, Stewart or Brown – even as you travel.
Taking that sense of excellence to the next level is the brand’s new Watch Roll. The eye-catching hexagon travel case is designed to carry up to three prestige watches in total safety, the perfect solution for watch owners on the move who struggle with how to safely and securely travel with their collections.
Crafted from the finest black or brown Tuscan leather, the exterior looks sleek and youthful. More impressive still is the inside, where Bennett Winch’s typically brilliant engineering comes into play. >>
Unrolling the Watch Roll reveals a Kevlar lining making the case impervious to water and padding to protect your collection from any impact damage or scratches.
The roll is then lined with in olive Alacantara suede – the same fabric used in the interiors of an Aston Martin – for both the removable cylinder watch holder and the case itself, which can be laid flat to form a preparation deck in order to protect watches even as you secure them to the cylinder.
Finally, secured by three solid brass poppers, the watch roll makes a stylish travel companion for discerning collectors, and the perfect gift for the horological enthusiast in your life.
