    Hi guys
    this box just sold in Switzerland for the nice price of 3803 CHF (3'900 USD)
    Is it really that special? Please enlighten me, I'm a box noob.

    Not unique in its origin, but this is the box for my 45th Apollo 11 Speedmaster. Flight Directors, astronauts, and a couple of Apollo astronauts

    20200121_134722.jpg 20200121_134841.jpg 20200121_134937.jpg Hello everyone, I'm a new member who wants to find out about an Omega box. I guess this is the place to ask?
    So, at some point my grandad must have had an Omega, all I have is the box (bummer), more gutting is I'd love an Omega lol!
    I have decided to sell the box, as it's of little use to me. I had a really good look around on here, and on ebay (selling and sold/unsold) and I cannot find another one like it. There are tonnes with just 'Omega' written in the lid, but I haven't seen another with 'Omega' & 'Constellation' below, this leads me to think it may be rarer than normal?
    I would say it's over 50 years old?
    I would be interested in anything about it, what watch went in it, and obviously a value - sadly it's missing the internal red bit, but I believe you can replace those with another? wasn't glued in.

    welcome @G0OSE
    It looks like a late 60s or early 70s box.
    Omega made boxes specifically for Constellations but also similar ones for other Omega watches, without the name.
    All Constellation boxes should have Constellation written inside (but watches were sometimes sold with the wrong box, so sometimes you see a Connie in a box without the name)
    There were several Constellations variations on the market in this era, so the box could have housed any of them.
    The insert with the watch holder often goes missing and they are not that easy to find separately.
    Being a later box without the insert means there isn’t a great deal of value in it I’m afraid.
    Best thing would be to list it on eBay and see what people will bid for it.

    hope that helps.

    Anyone familiar with this one? I presume a 1950s Seamaster Calendar.. anyone know if it’s early 50s for a 2627/2757 or a bit later for a 2849 reference?

    Missing the insert unfortunately..

    Have searched around but was unable to determine what this box was used for. It measures
    11,5 x 8 x 4,5 cm.

    So can anyone help me date this box and if this one was used for any particular watches?

    Would be very much appreciated!
