Any reviews on a pelican 1400 case for 10 watches

Iím looking to purchase a Pelican 1400 case and configure it for 10 watches. Has anyone purchased one already pre done or done it themselves? I would like to know how do the watches fit and opinions on the case.

Pelicans are great and super easy to configure yourself. I like the 1170 for my four watches. I recommend you carefully consider the size for your needs. I like to travel with my watches and the 1170 is the perfect size for a duffle bag. Not too big. You could always get two smaller boxes for flexibility purposes. Otherwise, the 1400 is a fantastic choice. I strongly recommend it.

I cannot say I have any experience with turning a Pelican case into a watch storage solution, but I can CERTAINLY attest to the quality, durability, and overall awesomeness of Pelican cases no matter what the application.

Two smaller ones might seem like a good option. Thanks

Did you do it yourself? What are you using for the watch cushions?

Yup, cut it out myself. I use pipe insulation for the cushions.

Hereís a really crappy pic

The pelican cases are alright in my opinion. I feel like the foam cushions are a little harder than I would have preferred, and I don't like how the foam insert on the top of the case touches the watch face.

^ that is what provides all of the protection, though. Foam is very soft. It isn't going to do any harm...

The foam inserts, atleast in my case from casefarm are pretty tough imo.

Purchased one of these when they cost a bit less almost 8 years ago. They have various sizes and are much better looking and much nicer interals than a Pelican but still extremely strong.
