Anyone knows where to get resonably priced, good quality watch box?

The stowa is coming this month and I thought it will be good to house it properly with my other watches. They might not cost a lot but they are like my little babies!
I am also looking to buy a watch box too. Maany avaibale online (like Qoo10) but can't tell how their quality is like

Just saw on Creationwatches.com, Orient Bambino is selling at 169SGD... worth a look and consideration.

depends on what type of feel you wanna portray and which want you like the most.

in terms of iconicity, sub would be the most iconic with its divers background followed by the daytona for its racing heritage and im not sure about the gmt master.

in terms of versatility, all can be worn casual or smart i guess. down to what you looking for.


Frankly I prefer Daytona to GMT/Sub. Only thing about Daytona is that model is around 30k region. I am not there yet while GMT/Sub is achievable.

lolz problem about GMT/Sub is I like GMT looks to sub, but the hao lian in me wants Sub as blue plus two tone stands out more.

I was just about to ask...while we have all these talks abt ALS, how come no one mention anything abt ALS' little little bro, GO?

Not worth the mention or comparison at all?
My next watch should be a GO Panomatic Lunar !!! SEXY WOOHOO

If u can, skip the two tones and save up for the rose gold daytona. The two tone I feel is not here not there. Throw in the sub or gmt color the whole watch looks too colourful. Honestly the daytona's chronograph function is useless. That's why I almost got the full gold GMT; got date got GMT and looks damn masculine with the big numerals and supercase.

I had a two tone daytona with diamond markers. Sold it after a yr. i also had a yellow gold daydate (president) but sold it too but I do miss it.

If u dont want full gold so loud then get full steel. After a while the two tone looked cliche to me so I sold the 116523.

I say go for the RG daytona. Its really nice. Or a YG GMT if u want.

YG GMT is Yellow gold right? If so it is too bling for me haha.
I know what you saying about the chronograph. Frankly other than GMT's dual time or date. What other function will we normally use? I certainly dont use my speedmaster's tac lolz.

Changed the strap of the orient I bought for my dad with the genuine croc leather I had for my Rolex daydate.
Looks so much nicer even my mum says so....


Heres a comparison with the original strap which I find is too black.....


width is slightly smaller but the colour matches better.....

Do get the watch box from ten10. His workmanship very good. I bought watch trays and several other things from him.
