For a watch box like no other, this remarkable design from G.J. Cleverley is just the thing. Faced in a limited supply of the house’s precious Russian reindeer hide, it channels almost two centuries of sartorial history.
Indeed, the story behind Cleverley’s source of Russian reindeer hide is something of a mythic tale – in 1973 the house secured a supply of extraordinary 18th century hides that were found by deep sea divers in the hull of a sunken trade brigantine off the South Coast of England, and which conditions on the seabed had miraculously preserved for some 200 years.
The hides had been cured in baths of rye or oat flour and yeast, hand embossed with a cross-hatched grain and then soaked in seal oil and birch tan oil – yielding an extraordinary leather which is both supremely durable and malleable, perfect for fine shoemaking and for the crafting of superior leather goods, even after some two centuries on the sea bed.
This watch box can take four watches with display cushions and features a combination lock front, carrying handle and buff suede interior. It is available on a made-to-order basis.
