A small American Black Walnut watch box holding two wrist watches on soft yet firm cylinder cushions. The box includes a small tray for cuff links and other accessories.
The exterior of the handmade wooden box is covered in a chocolatey brown figured American Black Walnut veneer. Light and dark lines of grain are enhanced by the light figuring perpendicular to the grain. Additionally, the edges of the box are chocolate brown straight grained Walnut. These are inlaid with purple dyed lines of Sycamore.
A soft sheepskin suede in Purple Heart, lines the interior of the box, complementing the colour of the Walnut and picking out the purple inlay of the edges. Luxurious suede lines the Walnut tray and as the tray is suspended in the front compartment, this results in there being plenty of usable space underneath.
Brass stopped hinges and a brass sliding catch are fitted to the box.
Finally the box is finished with a low sheen lacquer.
This kind of Walnut normally has a very straight grain with pronounced colour differences in obvious lines. This is because the Walnut is quarter sawn which allows some figuring to appear, subsequently giving a very contemporary masculine look.
