Just tripped across these in my IG feed. Look pretty good for $70. Anyone have one thinking of getting one while I save for a Betman box.

Hey, I do have one of these. Mine was made (or just sold?) by a guy in Mexico, my wife gave it to me for our anniversary. It is a lovely piece, and I was contemplating a second one. I use it for some of my watches that I don't wear as often. It seems like the one you found is either by a different manufacturer and the same design, or both of these sellers are buying them from the same source.

Here is where mine is from: https://www.deferichs.com/watch-box-wit ... r-no-12-1/, and the company also has an Etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/listing/253641905/ ... ro=1&frs=1

Here is mine:

Nice boxes, the wood looks as if there was a lot of worms there at some point...

I bet you anything there are still a few worms in there. I recently opened the bottom drawer, and in the far back corner there was some sawdust piled underneath the cushion with the watch. Active worm alarm! :mrgreen:

Remove the watches and the dust and let it stay in your freezer for 24 hours, problem solved.

I have owned an old summer house and we had the same issues, until I let all furniture weather over night in -20 on the lawn.

That's a great idea! I haven't even thought of doing anything, since it's the first time I've seen some dust appear. But you are right, better to be proactive about that!

If you are particular, use a plastic bag.

Get rid of these worms, they will soon be out in your home!
