The spirit of De Stijl is alive and well, as evidenced by this Mondrian-inspired watch cabinet soon to be released by the revered luxury goods purveyor Smythson of Bond Street. Part of an entire men's collection for this fall, the cabinet is finished with a black pigskin leather exterior and contains a perpetual motion watch "rocker" that pulls out to reveal hidden storage at the cabinet rear. White and primary colored drawers, offset by the Mondrian black grid, provide storage for eight more watches, belts, sunglasses, cufflinks, tie pins, key fobs or any precious accessory you might want.

Smythson notes that the cabinet can stand alone or be inserted into a safe. But with lines this clean, who'd want to hide such a treasure in a steel box? Available this October at both Smythson's East and West Coast boutiques (details after the jump), the Watch and Accessory Cabinet retails for $6,475 — a small expenditure compared to the Patek Philippe, Ikepod, Omega and Tissot collection it's designed to contain.
