    Hello all,

    Wondering what the members on here do for strap and bracelet storage if they have big strap collections.

    I used to store mine in a storage drawer that came under the winder I had. But gave that winder away. Plus it wasn't big enough for all my straps.

    I'm currently in the process of getting a new winder ad what to also get something separate for my straps so would love to see what all of you guys do. Trying to go for an elegant look as well but don't seem to be many of any dedicated products out there other than commercial displays.

    Thanks in advance!

    Bought this from Lidl; it's intended use is for storing accessories within a wardrobe.
    My wife noted that it has two sides, so plenty more straps to go :)
    Various friends also commented on my mental sanity.

    Wow....

    That's a lot of straps. I definitely don't have nearly that many.

    There was a wood 12 watch strap case with some decent ratings on amazon. Let me go searching for it as I have it and it's pretty decent.

    Edit: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002J3JCW8

    This was cheaper at one point and was sold through prime.

    Ok, so,where on earth do you find two tier divided cigar boxes? I don't seem to be able to find them on eBay. And the nice wooden box that @night0wl posted about is only available on the US - it's not on the UK Amazon website.

    About the only thing I can find is this:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Watch-St...90824956&sr=8-57&keywords=watch strap storage

    And it gets some pretty dire reviews.

    Any other options for storage that looks nice and keeps them all organised? I did think about pen storage boxes, but doubt the troughs that they have would be wide or deep enough.

    I remember seeing someone suggest a knife roll or case for strap storage, and although I've never tried it that seems like a pretty good suggestion given the wide availability and variations in cost, price and style. You should be able to find something that would work for an items that's much lighter than steel, bone, wood and carbon.

    I'm a convert. I was using a fishing tackle box. It was great. But after I saw someone post the knife cases, I found some .... super good price and a decent quality as it turned out. Got one to start with to try it out and ended up getting two more. Arranged by size and colour and using the third one for OEM straps. Awesome.

    Here's the listing. https://www.ebay.ca/itm/262758504095
    Only $15. Fast shipping ... from California for this seller.

    After much thought I decided to forgo the aesthetics of some nice leather bound storage box or similar for the practicality and low cost of a double sided tackle box.

    Very happy with the results!
