Manufacturer: Volta Winders | Price: $199 USD (€180 EUR, £160 GBP approx)
I’ve had quite a few watch boxes of different sizes and price points over the years, from cheap crap (but done the job) offerings from Amazon to high end WOLF boxes and pretty much everything else in between. I stumbled upon Volta just a few weeks ago when I was searching the interweb for an additional watch box to seperately store all the watches that come in for review. After searching through the Volta website I decided to reach out to them. After speaking to them for a wee while they agreed to send me this matte charcoal 10 slot version for me to check out. So… is it any good? Let’s see.

Volta 10-Slot Watch Box
After first getting this watch box in to take a look at, the very first thing I noticed was the weight of the thing. It’s bloody heavy, (for a watch box). This thing is solid, which I like! You can tell immediately that this thing is built to last, as the overall build quality is absolutely phenomenal! I’ve always swore by WOLF watch boxes in the past as I’ve had quite a few of them. However, the Volta is far better in every way possible, it just oozes quality. The WOLF boxes feel cheap in comparison. You can see in the image below, the stainless steel accents on top, with the front one sporting the Volta logo.
The Volta watch box has space for 10 watches in total. You could easily fit larger watches in the box as the space between each compartment is more than plentiful. As you can see in the image below the watches that I have in there are anything from 40mm diameter up to 43mm and there is still oodles of room. The quality of the cushions are fantastic too, covered in leather enhancing the quality feel even further. The overall circumference of the cushions are just under 8 inches but all my watches fit without adjusting any of the bracelets or straps. Just for your reference, my wrist size is 7 inches.
