Box Play 1940’s: Omega Officer reference 2299

Back in the 1940’s, watches were smaller than today’s fashion and so were the boxes as well.

Today we see a lot of very large, luxury boxes that would easily fit ten watches or more inside, made for just one watch…

Back in the 1940’s many boxes were made by paper…

 

Like this special made box for the Omega Officer reference 2299:

none

 

Small in size, both watch and box.

The ref 2299 is only 30.5 mm in diameter.

The box, 50mm x 139mm and 20mm high.

none

 

The box is similar to the “standard” box of this time, the “precision watch” box, just a tad smaller.

And, of course, the “Officer” both on the outside and the inside of the box!

none


The Officer was a watch made for the Swedish market, which can be see on the back of the watch.

“Antimagnetisk, Vattentät, Stötskyddad” Antimagnetic, Waterproof, Shock protected.

none 

 

Boxes comes in all shapes and sizes… A fun theme to dig into!

none

I agree, and big boxes are not practically! How many from the new boxes have space in a privat safe. Not enough for us. I think the companies have to provide a small safebox also, situated in the big show box. So the watch has a matching box for the safe and the big one is in a cupboard. Best Walte...

My collection of modern Rolex, and my projects.

By modern I mean from the 90's to nowadays, the Rolex before the 90's are neo vintage for me. So, what do I have? The Daytona 16520: The Explorer II 16570: The Yacht Master 16222: The Milgauss 116400 GV: And the Air King 2016 Edition, the 116 900: The funny thing I noticed is that in that selection, there are only Un-Rolex references. At the exception of the Daytona 16520, of course. But the others are not typical Rolex: The Milgauss and the Air King are totally crazy with their splashes of colors.
