    My wife and I are downsizing but one the collections I'm NOT parting with are my pocket watches. We'll be moving from over 3,000 square feet to a tad under 400. This will likely be a temporary situation (something like 2 years at the outside), unless we like the freedom of culling and downsizing our household goods.

    We'll have some wall space for pictures and such, and I'm looking for ideas of how to display my pocket watches. I have 6 nice ones that I'd like to be display, along with a couple of chains and some watch keys and a fob or two. Incidentally, I also have 6 or 7 nice antique swords and sabers I'd like to display, too.

    I'm look for ideas, suggestions, examples from other folks, and I would appreciate y'all's input.

    Thank you!

    There are several threads on this topic that include some interesting and attractive ideas. You might want to search the words watch displays or something similar as you await responses to your request. I don't recall seeing any that incorporate other collectibles, but you might get some ideas. Have fun!

    My friend put me on to wooden cases with hinged glass tops, that
    you snap close with latches. He has a buddy make his, for collecting
    arrow heads.
