The creation of Scatola del Tempo goes back to the end of the 1980s and was serendipitous, as it happened, not as a result of a conscious diversification of an existing business, or even a marketing decision. Scatola del Tempo was born from the desire and inventiveness of a watch collector, Sandro Colarieti, who needed watch boxes of the same high quality of his watch collection. Unable to find such boxes in the market place, he decided to make them for himself, using local craftsmen and the finest quality materials.
This story is all about objects that are designed with a real depth of knowledge about what they are destined to contain. It is about pure quality, employing the hand skills of the best craftsmen, using the best leather and it is about innovative technical solutions to match the classic taste and elegance of the boxes.
The essential concept on which Scatola del Tempo is based is that nothing in the design or construction of its products is underestimated, or left to chance. From the ergonomics of the watch holders, to the choice of the best, clasps, leathers, wood veneers and the electronics and mechanics of the rotors, every single piece is made with the utmost care and commitment to every detail.
