As we return to travel, new adventures and sunnier climes provide a welcome opportunity to both revisit and refresh our wardrobes. When on the move, accessories are an effortless and portable way to transform an outfit, right down to what’s on your wrist. But with watches often among our most treasured – and expensive – possessions, when swapping your trusty GMT for a dressier option for the evening it is essential to pick the right travel case that will keep your timepieces well protected.
Ettinger knows a thing or two about stylish and practical travel companions, with a heritage in making the finest leather goods that stretches back to 1934. The family-owned business is one of just a handful of such companies that design and handcraft its creations in the UK, with an emphasis on quality from the materials right down to every stage in the manufacturing process.
Its Capra Double Watch Roll is a case in point. It comes crafted from beautiful goat leather, which is both supple and pleasing to the touch, while also bringing essential strength and water-resistant properties. Further ensuring your watches are safe and sound is the suede lining, its silky finish the perfect choice for keeping them well nestled and blemish free. Every element has been thoughtfully designed to offer protection whether on-the-go or storing at home, with a divider to keep your timepieces separate and a silver popper button closure with two fastening options to allow space for a larger model.
The roll comes in five sophisticated colours, in classic hues of tan, forest green, marine blue and black, as well as the recently launched Bordeaux, its rich shade drawing inspiration from the wine-growing region of France near to where Ettinger sources its goat leather. The additional option of monogramming brings a personal and thoughtful finishing touch, just in time for the gifting season.
