This box finally made the travel from Taiwan to Kuala Lumpur, then to Kota Kinabalu to me...

Nice big and heavy box protecting the contents...

Plenty of bubble wrap... can you see the content?

Yup... it's the Wotancraft Ammiraglio Vintage MKII Metal Box.
Limited to 100 units.

I must say that I am really impressed by the workmanship of this case.
Metal case is intentionally been made to look vintage.

The results are really magnificent.
The box looks like it's a ammunition cache box that have been transformed into a watch box.
The aged look does not resemble anything like it's intentional.
More like natural... a great feat by Wotancraft.

The inside is nicely constructed with wood and microfibre.
Slots for 6 watches.

A polished metal plate with nice and deep engraving.

The top part of the watch case can be removed revealing a lower compartment for straps, tools and stuff.

A very nice engraving at the bottom of the metal case.
Almost missed this.

A nice gesture by Wotancraft to include a Brass coloured SLC Keyring as a gift.

Overall, it is my opinion that this watch case is worth the USD449 asking price.
The amount of work in the detailing and materials used are all top quality.
Before this, I was using a generic 5 slot watch case... which is all filled.
With this 6 slot watch case in, do I need to fill the empty slot? :-)
If yes... with what?
Well... only time will tell.

  1. Empty slot is probably reserved for PAM 00425 SLC ;)
    I am looking forward to buy one of these as well. Looks really impressive!
