    Default from CWC - army surplus tool rolls for watches











    https://www.cwcwatch.com/collections...nt=35547915724

    by coincidence I was looking at this site when I realised that I have actually got the tool roll and also the small pouch both in NOS condition; not sure what year mine are dated..

    strangely though I actually use them for keeping tools in.

    to be honest I wouldn't in a month of sundays want to use the tool roll for keeping watches in.

    and I think that I paid about a pound for mine from army surplus.

    I have also got some ammo boxes and I wouldn't want to use them to keep watches in either..

    Interesting I have been trying to figure out what to display my watches on/in I think Revo has a pretty cool display if memory serves me right. The roll would mind off be a fun temporary idea. I don't own super expensive watches nut wouldn't want to damage my pride and joy a 69 w10 Smith's. Makes me smile when I see the made in England on the dial.

    Tool roll yes, but I don't think you would be very happy if the heavy CWC diver or chrono slipped out without you knowing

    Compared to the RM utility strap where Silvermans seem to have been very careful in their language I see they're not worried about calling a tool roll a watch roll in this example.

    I like the watch roll that Graham Fowler has for his 13 Milsubs.

    Its not a tool roll but a 1980s issue wash roll to carry your wash kit and the small pouch was for the knife ,fork and spoon set . I had one when I joined in the late 1980s

    yes, you're absolutely right.

    here's a pretty awful youtube video -

    warning - there is NO watch content, only toiletries.

    so let's recap - CWC wants thirty quid for an empty wash roll.. spelled watchroll..
