You might not think much about packaging, but this is something that I spend a lot of time on. Especially when it comes to watches. Think about the watch box. It’s a thing of beauty for a luxury watch. The box is heavy and lined and plush and usually made of some type of teak wood, possibly with a shine or a supple grained leather. The watch box usually has a hinged opening, although sometimes there is a latch and then once you get inside, there your timepiece is, sitting around a pillow that is nestled deep within the plushness of satin or suede and well protected from the elements.
And, who doesn’t love that the inner watch box comes with an outer watch box that is made of the thickest cardboard, and when you open the top, the front flap usually falls open so the main box can slide right out. It’s so luxurious and Jonathan’s Watch Buyer wants to buy your watch box.
What is Your Watch Box Worth?
Did you all just run into your closets to see what watch boxes you have stored on top shelves? I don’t know if you are like me or not, but I save all of my watch boxes. I don’t just save the inner box, but the outer box and the sleeve that fits around the outer box. In fact, the more you have of the watch box, the more it is worth. If you have a box that has every single part it can be worth upwards of $350!
Why Would You Buy a Watch Box?
Now, I am not one of these watch sellers, but I do know some that buy boxes and hoard them and sell all their preowned watches without boxes, but you can then buy a box for an additional fee, which if you stop to think about it, is a pretty awesome business plan! But, I tend to get customers that sell me their watches without boxes and I like to send out my watches with boxes and I am sadly running very low on the watch box and am in need of them!!
What Type of Watch Box Do You Want?
Now, this is easy. I am really looking for just about anything, but what I really want is any type of watch box that is vintage, especially the vintage Rolex boxes from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. I really love when the boxes have both the inner and outer boxes together, so you do get more money for boxes that have both together. But, if you only have the inner, that works too. Even sometimes, but not often, I will buy just the outer. Note, I said, sometimes!!
I am always looking for:
- Tag Heuer
- Patek Philippe
- Ulysses Nardin
- Vacheron Constantin
- Audemar Piguet
