I was kindly sent a Chrono Bay watch stand earlier this month for a trial and some feedback.
Feels rock solid! Have no concerns placing any of the watches on the stand, it won’t topple over thanks to the stone base and the metal arm, it feels solid with no risk of twisting or slipping. The leather cushion is perfect to rest a watch on without scratching it up too.
Design, not only is the stand beautifully constructed, the curved design adds some nice detail to the product. It reminds me of a big end of a piston and I feel its a nice detail for a mechanical watch product too, since many watch guys are also car guys! The product is perfectly polished and looks great when a watch with similar finish is placed on it. I also enjoy the fact there is minimal branding on the product other than a small logo. I feel like the bedside table is a much cleaner space since I started using this product and the worry of knocking water over a leather strap during the night no longer exists!
Watches sit flat on when resting on the stand, If there was a way to balance a watch on the stand with it being slightly tilted downwards it would make it easier to see the time when on a bedside table for example.
The base is a beautiful piece of stone, a welcomed addition would be to have a small recess/groove in the base for a ring to be kept safe too.
Would love to see customisations options for the stand in the future, choice of leather colour and pad size incase you have more than one watch to display would be some good enhancements to the product in the future.
Thanks again to Chrono Bay for the opportunity to review their product, its highly recommended!
