Where other reviewers mention the smell from this item they are not over-exaggerating. It has been 8 months since I received this item and I tried to like it, I really did , but alas to no avail.
The odor does not dissipate. It is as strong as it was on day one. It is pungent enough that if I were to leave it closed it steeps my watches in its malodorous funk. Leather bands and silk knots seep it up like a sponge.
The watch storage area is indeed small for most mens watches. Extremely small if your watches have a large bezel i.e., Invicta watches. I tried using the row in the front-middle ( looks like a pack of hot-dogs ) as storage for my cuff links but the cuff links are too large for that and jut out a large amount AND are forced up against ones immediately above and below that row. This area may be more appropriate for rings or earrings. More so earrings than rings.
The only thing going for it is that it does look really nice when it is closed.
