    I just love this old flightmaster...........box. Arguably more rare than the watch!

    I like it too, but it costs almost as the watch itself!

    A set would be worth more than the sum of the parts?

    Dealers want you to believe that box and papers are not important when they sell a watch to you. They even post videos of themselves burning boxes... Now try selling a naked watch to them, that's another story.

    When I bought my Breitling Old Navitimer from an AD back in 2002 (the watch was in their pre-owned case and was about 3-4 years old) after the preening and dealing and payment made, they went in the back to give it wipe down and came back with a pretty store bag with ribbon handle and inside was a store branded box. I pulled it out and despite it being a pretty leatherette store branded box, it wasn’t the Breitling box. I pushed, and they went back to the stockroom- 10 minutes later they produced the yellow Breitling box, inside was the inner black box with extra links for the bracelet, booklet, instruction manual for use, warranty cards, bezel protector....I think this was standard for them to give a store box as watches were commonly gifted and they wanted their brand on the box as free advertising...no thanks.

    Let set the game.
    On the left a flightmaster stand lone and on the right a flightmaster box closed (that may include the watch).

    What will you choose ?
