Part of an entire men’s collection for this fall, the cabinet is finished with a black pigskin leather exterior and contains a perpetual motion watch “rocker” that pulls out to reveal hidden storage at the cabinet’s rear.
White is the primary color of the drawers, offset by the Mondrian black grid.
Apart from providing storage for watches, the cabinet also stores accesories like belts, sunglasses, cufflinks, tie pins, key fobs and any other precious accessories one might have.
Smythson notes that the cabinet can stand alone or be inserted into a safe. But with lines this clean, who’d want to hide such a treasure in a steel box?
Available this October at both Smythson’s East and West Coast boutiques, the Watch and Accessory Cabinet retails for $6,475 â€” a small expenditure as compared to the Patek Philippe, Ikepod, Omega and Tissot’s cabinet collection.
