Wotancraft Ammiraglio MkII Watch Case
« on: August 27, 2013, 12:52:24 PM »
Here's a review of something that is not a watch.
But is an integral part of a collection.
A nice place to keep those watches that are not in rotation.
Better than just chucking them in a drawer right?

I was lucky to acquire this box through a very good friend.
Again like most of my stuff, this box made the travel from Taiwan to Kuala Lumpur and lastly to Kota Kinabalu to me... All with the help of friends... ahhh... The reason why I am still in this hobby... friends all around that are ever willing to lend a helping hand...

Well... The box that I got is the Wotancraft Ammiraglio MkII watch case.
Limited to 100 units.



Big and heavy box...



Very nicely packed...



There we go... Nice...  ;D



Slots for 6 watches.
Previously my pouch was for 4 watches... hmmm
Is it time to fill the slots? lol



There's a compartment below the case that allows for storage for things like straps and tools.
A very well thought out design.
The inside is made of wood and microfibre.



A nice engraved plate showing the LE number.







Very nice detailing.
The vintage look have been done intentionally.
Sturdy and solid box.



Made by Wotancraft.
Overall I am thoroughly impressed with the workmanship, quality, materials used and detailing.
I will most probably only have 1 serious watch box throughout my journey, I am glad it is this one.

Thanks for the offer Hobbs, unfortunately i am done buying blind.
Would prefer to test on a piece before making the ultimate decision.
I was actually tempted by the clean aesthetics of the PAM372 but after testing shamtv's PAM422, i knew it was something my wrist just could not handle.
As to the 249, since a local dude like shamtv has it, mind as well test it on my wrist and gauge the feel right?.... Alas... It was not to be. Well, hopefully in the future someday i will finally get to molest the much coveted PAM249...

Ok hanz, I understand. Nothing like touching and feeling it for yourself. Trying it on, seeing how it fits and seeing if the piece sings to you or not. Me the same. Hope you get to see and touch the 249 soon....
