    Hi,
    bought one of these, seems that the box is missing a corner - does anybody have good images by any chance?
    Thanks,
    Florian

    Yes, looks to me like there should be another piece of wood towards the middle. Top and bottom has slots which the leather panel goes into (visible on my second photo). Maybe its OK after all. Really nice box, sadly sat under one of the infamous red boxes and has plenty of red paint on the front. Alcohol takes it off but the brown coloring goes along. Guess that stays...
    @tyrantlizardrex You are a better Googler than I am. Could only find images of mine ;-).

    Try baby wipes - I used them to clean red box residue off a couple of white outer boxes to great effect.

    Oh and that picture was deep deep into a search... not a common watch, but you know that ;)

    Very cool.

    @Barking mad Great set! Is this the original location of all the items? Where is the warranty card holder? Can you maybe take a close up pic of the right corner of the middle panel with the "Les Pieces de Omega collection" out?
    @Kringkily Thanks! I have a leather panel sitting in the slots, is that what you are referring to? Is this supposed to come out and if so, why?
    @tyrantlizardrex Good idea, will give that a go, should also keep the leather smooooth :)...

    This is an incredibly cool box - for those who collect the precious metal Speedmasters... do they all come in such luxurious packaging?

    @Barking mad Thanks again, this is exactly how mine is looking like. So nothing missing! Looks a bit unfinished though, is there a reason for the slots? Do you have a red card holder as well and where is that? Or is the warranty in the cutouts in the paper in your last pic?

    The ones that I have seen were for the white gold and platinum 25th Apollo anniversary editions but I heve seen used on another edition but cannot remember which. Think it was a watch that George had.

    Cheers

    They tend to have special boxes, sadly not all that lavish. Have a sliding wood one on the 50th anniversary Lemania one e.g. Sedna gold FOIS just gets the normal FOIS box :-(...

    Cool. For mine the warranty card goes in the cutouts in the cardboard/leather holder.

    Interesting, I have the usual red card holder with warranty, manual and service stations situated in the left panel (left a lot of red residue there, which luckily came off). Does your watch have a serial on one lug? Mine has not but doesn't seem overly polished.

    The box that is pictured is the one for my Platinum 25th anniversary so maybe the cardholder was different for the white gold. The box for my white gold one is a different design which might be explained by the watch being delivered to Japan. It shouldn't have a serial on the lug, only the limited number on the case back and serial on the movement.

    Cheers

    Interesting as my yellow gold ones from the nineties already have one (e.g. my 3691.50 from 1992).
