MIIK 3-Watch Travel case that easily accommodates 6 Watches

Dear All

What a surprise, on January 9th I had slept in, I had edited my watch site (re-written many pages) almost non-stop for 18 hours and really need to reload my batteries. When I got up, I found a big box on the dining table. Those boxes normally contain toys for our daughter that we order online. But something told me I should check the label: Reto Castellazzi, yippee! And when I saw MIIK as the sender my heart was starting to beat faster. With an extra sharp and pointed Japan cutter, the box was open in seconds. I almost forgot how sleepy I still was and started to unpack: wow! A great 6-Watch Travel case! Thank you Bill Yao and Duarte and all PMWF Admins that have contributed to this great gift! That is a very nice surprise! After an hour I had shot 22 pictures of the case and had of course felt the urge to immediately test it and fill it.
It was no problem at all to quickly choose 3 bracelet watches and 3 strap watches, a couple of bracelets and leather straps and my Wenger watchmaker's knife plus my favorite loupe. All was packed within minutes... a truly great travel case. Light, rugged and good looking! Please see the details by clicking on the thumbnails below. As always, if you keep clicking on the pictures, it will take you through the review! The comments will be above the pictures. If you are a poor dial-up user like me, you can read the text while the picture slowly drops in.
