Are you on the fence about getting a watch travel case?
From fabric and leather rolls to padded pouches and waterproof boxes, portable watch cases are not just for collectors, professionals, or die-hard watch enthusiasts. There isn’t a price threshold for the type of watch you should be protecting either. If you own even a single watch that you won’t be wearing every second of the day when you travel, then you need a travel case for it. It’s that simple.
Just as there are countless styles and models of watches, watch travel cases come in many different designs and materials, at various price points. Some brands will be better suited to your lifestyle and the size of your collection than others. Keep reading to see why a watch travel case purchase should go hand-in-hand with your very first watch purchase, and pick up a few pointers on how to choose the right one.

Reason # 1: Watch Travel Cases Offer Protection
If you’ve traveled without experiencing any spills or disruption in your suitcases or carry-ons, you’ve been lucky. Whether a bottle of shampoo or lotion goes rogue, or some loose change or other items cause scratches or bumps, something is bound to get at your watch if you pack it with other items. By getting a high-quality watch travel case, you protect your watch and its straps from bumps, scrapes, scratches, spills, stains, and other types of damage.
Just as important as the outer shell of the case is the internal lining. A cheap or poorly-made lining will come apart easily and allow your watch to bump around in the case. Ensure that your case is not stored in a damp or musty area, and this will ruin even the highest-quality boxes and the watch stored inside.
Reason # 2: Watch Travel Cases Keep You Organized
This may not be much of an issue for persons with a single watch, but larger watch cases can hold anywhere from two to two-dozen individual watches with ease. If you love options or need to have a wide selection with you for professional reasons, a watch case is your best bet for staying organized. Change out your options depending on your travel destination.

Reason # 3: Watch Travel Cases Help You Grow Your Collection
If you’re new to watch-collecting, traveling may be a great way for you to find new pieces to add to your collection. With a multi-watch travel case, you can review your collection at any time, and add new timepieces while on the road. If you’re going for a specific theme, having your other watches on hand can even make it easier to pick a new member of the family when visiting stores or doing a quick check online.
Reason # 4: Watch Travel Cases Give You Flexibility
Do you have multiple watch bands for your favorite timepiece? Watch travel cases with compartments allow you to take multiple strap options on the road, and change your look from casual to trendy to professional with strap changing tools and a few minutes of your time. Bring unique graphic NATO straps along to show off your personality, or to handle the tougher outdoor conditions on a hike or weekend camping trip. Stainless steel mesh and bracelet bands give off a more elegant look, and silicone and leather sit comfortably against the skin.
Reason # 5: Watch Travel Cases Allow You to Show Off
Like us at VARIO, many people appreciate a good watch! If you’ve got one or a few that you’re proud of, a travel watch case allows you to display your collection with pride to a fellow watch aficionado, or pass it around for family and friends to take a peek at while you pay a visit. Roll pouches are especially suited for this, allowing you to reel out your collection with a flourish!

Reason # 6: Watch Travel Cases Keep Your Accessories Safe
Because they’re built to accommodate watch accessories like extra straps, spring bars, and microfiber cleaning cloths, the right watch travel case can be a great place to store smaller items that are prone to getting lost when you travel. From cuff links and tie pins to earphones and earrings, cases with small compartments allow you to keep important items secured and organized in your carry-on, always within reach. Items inside the case will also receive the same level of protection from abrasion, drops, shocks, dirt, and spills as your watches.
Reason # 7: They’re a sound investment
Just as insurance is used to protect important valuables like your house and car, watch travel cases can give your watches a longer life. You can find a great watch case at a fraction of your favorite watches, which means that for a small additional cost, you’ll be able to reap all the benefits on this list for years to come. Even if you don’t travel often, the travel case can be used to store your watches at home as an alternative to a display box or storage container that is less portable.
Reason # 8: There are so many to choose from
If your watches and watch bands offer a chance to show off your personality, why not do the same with your watch cases? Available as pouches, cases, boxes, and rolls, they come in a wide variety of materials and designs, allowing you to choose the option that works best for you.
If you’re travelling with a single watch, VARIO’s travel watch case is a premium yet pocket-friendly donut-shaped option with a high-quality shock resistant nylon exterior and velvet interior. It was designed with a raised center to stop your watches from shifting, and can fit larger G-Shock watches as well as a pair of earphones, or your Apple-watch plus its charging cable. For travelers looking for variety, our handmade Belarusian leather pouches hold up to four watches, and come with a beautiful patina that add to its luxury-item look.
Our travel watch cases are water resistant to protect your beloved watches from accidental spills.
Bonus: Watch Travel Cases Make Great Gifts
If you have a friend or family member who’s just started building their collection, or have a full-fledged love for everything related to timepieces, a watch travel case is an ideal gift for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and any other special life event.
So remember, it doesn’t matter if you’ve just bought your very first watch or are well into your collection, if you haven’t purchased your first watch travel case, now’s the time to get on it.
