I have a couple of wooden watch boxes, one branded Glycine and the other is a generic box but reasonable quality (I was told it was the same box Panerai use). Other peripherals include a box full of straps and bracelets with associated links, clasps and buckles, a small collection of tools for very minor work (I do not consider myself competent for anything technical), a cheap case press for the one watch which needs it when I change the battery every three years, a radio controlled clock for setting my mechanicals and checking their gain / loss. Rolex GMT-Master II and Rolex - Submariner books. A Breitling book and the Omega "bible". Also have a couple of books on watch repairing not that I would attempt it.

unsuitable shorts

What was the question ?

Oh yes; straps, literally hundreds of them, some more expensive than the watches they were bought for, oozing out of unsuitable boxes, and springbars, everywhere, some of them intentional.

Toolz. I tried buying cheapies, and found that you get what you pay for. So I buy better tools (I only wish I could afford Bergeon all the time) from Ofrei, use them once in a while.
