Watch pod has landed.

Post by ericf4 » Sat Mar 24, 2018 11:53 am

I saw Don review this on his YouTube channel and thought it looked like a great solution for like 12 bucks. Very high quality and tough exterior with solid zipper and all in all great protection for a watch. It also came with a microfiber cloth. They also make a 3 watch version as I recall.

Thx Don for putting this on my radar through your video. ImageImage

Looks like the old Oakley watch vault, which is a good thing.

Yeah not sure as I've never seen one. It's built like a tank though for sure.

Yup, looks like a cheaper alternative to the Oakley one that I have - think it was around $20 but not positive. These days, I use Terry’s watch roll more than nothing else I have.

I use an Oakley every day. This looks like a good alternative since those are difficult to get.

It's built like a brick shithouse. Thx Don I enjoy your vids. I always check them out even when for brands I'm not interested in. I always learn something.

I don't like laying bracelet watches flat which can cause scratching. OCD I know, but these are perfect.

I don’t know about the internal movement.
That’d concern me.

I've got a handful of a cheaper version. That version looks much nicer.

Strap watches don't move around at all that I see. Also there is a bump in the middle of both side keeping the watch from flying around in there.

I have several Oakley's, I believe they are out of production. I have a couple of Casebudi's, but these look to be made better.

I put a folded handkerchief in my Oakley to stop internal movement. I also have some casebudis that work just as well but aren’t quite the same quality as the Oakley.

I keep an empty one in my backpack and put my watch in it to go through airports, I don’t like my watches loose in the tray.

Whilst the three watch one looks interesting it’s kinda big for what it’s trying to achieve.

Nice. I just placed an order for a Watch Pod. It looks like a good compact solution for a single watch.

Less nice. The outside looks identical, but the inside is less softly finished.

For larger watches, it shouldn't be a problem. For normal sized ones, you can use a cut-up t-shirt to take up the extra space. Eric could use a wad of tape.

On it's maiden voyage here in Dallas today it worked well. Even though a smaller watch on bracelet may shift a bit inside it doesn't move from being secured around the center cones. In other words it can break loose and flop around I side the case.

Can't - nobody thinks it could. The watch can bounce around inside the case though, which puts a shock on the movement.

Also as mentioned strap watches seem not to move at all while bracelet watches with floppy bracelet do move around a bit.

Looks very much like the Oakley watch vault. I always check the Oakley outlet malls to see if they have the watch vaults. I often get lucky but it been a while.
