Anyone have any storage ideas? I like the idea of a storage/display solution.

Ziplock bag, I'm afraid.

For washing I put them on one of those mesh bags that prevent socks from disappearing. Sometimes. Haven't lost a watchband yet.

I got nothing. I put mine in a drawer.

A little cigar box with a bunch of other odds and ends like extra button packets, tie clips, etc. Probably the easiest to go through them quick.

^ Cigar boxes are perfect for those little doodads.

I remember seeing a store back home display watches and watchbands on something like a paper towel holder. Looked better than that probably sounds.

Ditto. I assume all of us have a "guy drawer" full of random sh*t...? My Dad did, and I was fascinated with it. Now, I have one, too. ;)

Mine go in a little valet, but if you want to display them and have a ton, how about hanging them from some little hooks or nails?

What about getting a mannequin wrist display that they use for bracelets/watches? Just a thought.

Oh, you could link them together into one long strap and wear them as a belt . . . or would that just be a waist of time?

Yup, mine seems to almost double everytime I open it. Or maybe I forgot I had half the things in there?
