A medium sized Kevasingo watch box holding three 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 deep reddish-brown figured Kevasingo veneer. Dark purplish veins create a marble appearance with a ripple and 3d effect. Some small amounts of sapwood give a golden vanilla colour in places on the box. Additionally, the edges of the box are creamy white Maple. These are inlaid with Maple and Bubinga lines.
A soft sheepskin suede in Black, lines the interior of the box, contrasting well with the colour of the Kevasingo and Maple edges. Luxurious suede lines the Maple 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 lock are fitted to the box. The lock is surrounded by a Maple escutcheon with inlaid lines matching the box edge.
Finally the box is finished with a low sheen lacquer.
Kevasingo is also known as Bubinga or African Rosewood (not a true Rosewood). The rotary-cut of Bubinga, also known as Pommele Bubinga, produces the veining which gives the marbled or variegated figuring.
