Glass dome with a solid wood, brass, or pewter base, available in a variety of base finishes and configurations for the display of your pocket or wrist watches.  These displays feature stained hardwood, brass, or pewter bases with a semi-gloss sealant, a small circular groove that securely fits the elegant glass protective dome, and soft felt (either a full layer or separate pads) on the bottom to provide traction and prevent scratching to the surface on which the dome is resting.  These domes can provide a fine solution to showcase your watches and with some thought as to placement within your room, can be effective and attractive display options that will also help protect your watch.  Watches shown in photos are for display purposes only.

Measurements for these items are as follows (with a +/- 3mm variance on each measurement due to the handcrafted nature of each piece):
  • "Small" bases range from 108mm to 115mm in diameter, and from 12mm to 20mm in height, while the corresponding "small" glass domes are 75mm in diameter, and are 110mm in height with no hook, or 125mm in height with hook
  • "Large" bases range from 125mm to 145mm in diameter, and from 15mm to 30mm in height, while the corresponding "large" glass domes range from 110mm to 112mm in diameter, and are 170mm in height with no hook, or 195mm in height with hook

We currently offer the following base styles. Selecting from the dropdown choices above will provide a photo. Click on any of the following selections below for a detailed description of that base.
  • Brass pocket watch hook from base
  • Watch shown in the photos is a 16S. This dome is ideal for all pocket watches 12S or smaller as is, or the hook can be modified to turn up and support a 16S or 18S watch.

  • Double brass pocket watch hooks, of varying heights, from base
  • Watches shown in the photos are a 12S & 18S. This dome is ideal for all pocket watches 18S or smaller as is on the tall hook, 12S or smaller on the lower hook.

  • Clear acrylic wrist watch display from base
  • These domes are ideal for most antique and vintage wrist watches, however you may find that there is not enough room for a thick watch, such as divers watches, to fit between the display and the glass dome. Display flexes slightly to allow a closed band to be securely attached.

  • "Flat" base, to be used with glass dome featuring a metal or wood pocket watch hook from the top of the dome
  • Watch shown in photos is a 16S. These domes are ideal for all pocket watches 16S or smaller, and may handle an 18S watch depending on the style and length of the case.

  • None/no base (glass dome only)
  • For purchase as a replacement glass component, or for use in situations not requiring a base.
