With 122 years behind them, Rimowa has had a decorated history of perfecting every detail on their suitcases.
This ranges from the brand’s signature grooved aluminium exteriors — an homage to the world’s first all-metal aircraft — to the 360-degree spinner wheels that have made many a marathon to your boarding gate an impeccably smooth affair. Now that travel has come to a standstill, the German brand wants to keep a vastly different type of valuables safe: Your most prized wristwatches.
Sure, the Rimowa Watch Case was made as a travel accessory, but the brand’s distinctive retro-futuristic aesthetic makes this one just as worthy of a spot on your mantle, dresser, or bedside table as it is within its famous Classic Cabin.
Glide the sleek aluminium cylindrical case open and three removable padded cushions — as well as an additional top cushion layer — sit ready to accommodate three timepieces. Like the luggage, the watch case sees a grooved aluminium exterior shell and microfibre interior to ensure the precious cargo stays safe, whether during transport or on display at home.
The Rimowa Watch Case currently available for pre-order at HK$15,390, and will reach selected stores worldwide in December — just in time for Christmas. If you’re already taking notes, this might just be the best gifting option for a watch enthusiast — after an actual watch, of course.
