Default Watch box pillows ?

I know this question has been asked a few times but has anyone yet found a source for quality watch pillows/cushions ?

Not the square soft ones etc etc but the ones like the picture below.

I was looking at some of the beautiful boxes available in the States a so well priced but the shipping to the UK kills it you guys in the States are spoiled

You might want to check with these guys http://www.acetimer.com

They have a variety of watch boxes that use this type of pillow. While they don't have the pilllows listed as available eparately, they might be able to help you get them.

John,


I purchased one of those boxes from Acetimer and while excellent for the money, I find the pillows to be undersized. I have a 7.25" wrist and there is plenty of slack after the clasps are closed around these which drives me a little crazy. It also means that for straps I have to choose a different hole than the one I wear the watch on, which I guess is either good or bad depending on your thoughts. They are nicely made though.

I have 2 watch cases with the above mentioned pillows and they are on the small side for my 8" wrist, With straps I just wrap around the pillow and put the tounge under the keeper so I do not use another strap adjustment hole.

As a small wristed bloke I cant shut half my bracelets around the cushions... no such thing as the 'right' size I guess.

Interesting...it may depend on the model/cushion. I have an 7 3/4" wrist and the pillows, which are shaped like the one posted up top, actually fit all my watches perfectly! The cushions actually have an outer layer that can be removed to make them smaller as well. The model winder I got is SKU-AT-8BURL+10 for reference.

Hope this is helpful...

David

I am just seeking Ken Bailey art pads. I managed to get conversationalarts.com by Google search. I saw they sell fantastic Ken Bailey Art pillows in chief price. Do you suggest me to make a deal with them?
