Pad and Quill today announced a new line of accessories for the upcoming Apple Watch, including the "Luxury Pocket Stand" charging stand, a roll up pouch for portability and two travel kits.

The Luxury Pocket Stand is inspired by old pocket watch stands and is hand carved from a single piece of African mahogany or American cherry. The stand is also collapsible, allowing users to fold it up and take it with them on-the-go.

The Roll Up Kit is crafted with full grain American steer leather for packing on the fly and comes with a pouch to hold the charging magnet. There's also the Luxury Travel Kit and Luxury Travel Pouch, both of which come with the Pocket Stand and space for chargers. The Travel Kit, however, features secondary sleeves to hold Apple Watch bands.

The Luxury Pocket Stand is available for the pre-order price of $69.99, but will raise to $79.99 when it's released in May. Both the Luxury Travel Kit and Travel Pouch are available for pre-order priced at $119.99, while the Roll Up Kit is available for pre-order priced at $49.99. All four products ship in mid-May.

I know, let's use Apple watch prices as a guide for our crappy products.

That looks like moulded poop. Utterly disgusting, sorry. I'd go with Twelve South or DodoCase.

One of the better Apple Watch stands to get previewed so far. But still awaiting something slick and deserving (?) to buy.

I understand the ease of charging the watch by simply attaching the magnetic charger to the back, but I can also see the convenience of getting a stand.

I can understand a pouch of sorts for your phone... But a watch? Shouldn't you be wearing the thing?

Someone please wake me up when this Apple Watch thing is over. It's like the 1980s all over again.

I've said long before it was even announced that it's a stupid product taking Apple in the wrong direction.

But this company doesn't represent my interests anymore.

Judging by the comments here this will be Tim Cook's defining failure as CEO.

If this thing is so despised among Mac (note I said Mac and not Apple) fans and technology enthusiasts it's going to make Apple a laughing stock.

You obviously weren't here when the iPad, iPhone and iPod got announced.

Same old story this time.

I like the contrast of organic materials against tech like this. That said, I'm not super crazy about this particular one.
I'm sure we'll see some great options for the "watch stand/charger" category in the months to come. I'm not compelled to rush into anything.

Pad and Quill should stick to making bags, everything else they make looks disgusting in my opinion.

Just buy a pack of Lego and build your own.

This seems like such an easy project that someone with very little woodworking experience can do themselves.

Simply 2 pieces of wood. Attach them together at an angle with either a metal hinge, or a wooden, triangle wedge. Cut a hole in one of the pieces of wood, and a notch.

I can make one of these for like $2-$3 in about 30 minutes of my time.
