Since 2009, our team of designers and master-craftsmen has quietly and meticulously created bespoke travel trunks & casegoods for some of the world’s most renowned luxury brands; reviving lost traditional skills and combining these with fine cabinetmaking techniques to bring one-off objet d’art to life for Swiss watchmakers, historic marques and legendary global fashion houses.
From this heritage of design, artisan craft, detail and unparalleled quality has emerged Method Trunk Works: A hidden forest workshop and design studio, dedicated to creating the world’s most exclusive luxury trunk.
Each trunk is made to commission, taking hundreds of hours to create. And with only a handful of artisan craftsmen capable of making such pieces, the finished articles are among the rarest, and most unique in the world. And entirely British made.
A dedicated website is currently being crafted, but for further information or to discuss a potential commission please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

G.T Wardrobe Trunk
Designed in homage to the classic steamer trunks and portmanteau of the grand tour era, our campaign case is a true labour of love; fusing leather, hardwood and brass to create a tactile, romantic and functional piece of watch luggage unlike any other.
Essentially, a tiny trunk for your treasured timepiece.
We've created these cases in some truly remarkable combinations. With custom leathers, scorched timber, gold plated hardware...to name just a few. We’ve even developed custom versions in ultra-limited numbers for some of the UK's finest bespoke watchmakers.
Always special. Always subtly showing the hand of the maker, and always with a custom-tailored wrist-last; crafted from solid hardwood and wrapped in thick bridle leather to match your wrist/strap size.
For us it's about celebrating and revelling in the ritual. The winding, the cleaning, the investigation...it's all part of the magic. And we believe that the opening of the case and the reveal should also be a hands-on, treasured experience.
Various timbers, various leathers, various metals, initialling/personalisation by request

Delicate, elegant and perfect for revelling in the ritual…
Handcrafted from birch, bridle leather and goat suede, our petit jewellery trunk contains a series of finely detailed, goat suede lined lift-out trays - for watches, accessories and jewellery - which are gripped and lifted with slim, elegant polished brass handles.
The interior is lined with soft, ultra-fine goat suede and leather, and bespoke (to your wrist size) oak and bridle leather wrist-lasts allow watches to be housed without stressing the straps.
