    Lets make an exhaustive Omega box thread !
    As I live in Belgium, the boxes I own are Swiss made and are different from those made for the American market.
    You will notice, I am not good at pictures.
    Please complete this thread with pictures of boxes you own or information on boxes displayed in this thread.

    Now a model often seen on Ebay UK (I don't know why, maybe they make them ?) and described as for 321 Speedmaster when I beleive it is a generic box. It exists in two versions. écrin omega 093.JPG écrin omega 094.JPG écrin omega 095.JPG écrin omega 096.JPG écrin omega 099.JPG
    Notice the difference in the inside, in ref. 1501 you can take away the inside not in the other one. écrin omega 100.JPG écrin omega 106.JPG
    only the ref. 1501 has markings on the back. écrin omega 102.JPG écrin omega 107.JPG

    By the way I would like to say to the people who have designed this site that it is so nice and so easy to use that it makes it the best.
    VRF feels like Neanderthal Jurassic compared to OmegaForum.

    I have to admit it, you guys have some serious CDO problems (that's OCD but in alphabetical order, the way it should be).

    Anyone have any of these? I am always looking for them but rarely see.
    Bakelite from the 30's, I think, comes in several colors.

    I love those 1930's boxes as well.
    I have 3.

    Created in 1935 by a Company by the name of Jousi from Turku (Finland). These boxes can double as window displays when their lids are totally folded back.

    I maybe able to get hold of one for you if you are interested. The same as the one on the left was available when I got mine. Possibly a tissot as well. DM me if your interested and I will find out for you.

    Also this guy is selling one but it's not in great shape:
