Watch Boxes "Click" to Login or Register

Sometimes the box that the watch was displayed in can be as attractive and unusual as the watch itself. Herer are two to start things off.

I thought both of these boxes were quite decorative and added to the display of the watches.

The first is a Bulova.

The second is for a Parker. A bit of the watch itself can be seen in the right edge of the picture above.


What unusual or attractive boxes do you have?

Tom, I have my late aunt's Bulova which is in an exact box like the gold one in your first post. I know the watch is original to the box and it has the L1 date stamp on the back making it 1951.

Hi Tom,

What a great idea and a beautiful Bulova watch box! I can't say I collect watch boxes as I only have 2, well maybe 1 l/2 Smile, (you'll see).

I was given my first watch box (so I thought) after a watch chain purchase at one of the finer jewelry stores in the area. The word "Krementz" is printed in the box. After further research, I discovered the antique box once housed an art deco cuflink/stud set.

Take a look!

Circa 1925

Here's a peek at my other watch box, velvet, barrel shape, faux pearl knob. At some point housed a Lady Bulova wristwatch.

Circa 1920's-30's

And last, not in my collection yet, a very interesting and most unusual wristwatch box by the Speidel Watch Company. Thought you may enjoy viewing this one!

Stephanie!!!!!!!!

Your Speidel is EXACTLY the one I tried to bid on, on ebay, when my computer froze up on me and I lost out on it. I LOVE THAT HOLDER!

Your cases are so so so nice. I love the cufflink one too, it's shape is so unusual.

You may only have 2, but they really are super nice ones to have.


Tom,
Wow! Those are fantastic.
The Bulova is beautiful and I do love the Logo on the top!
That Parker is so period. Looks like a train! I love this one!
I never see any really good Watch Boxes, most are so beat up these days, or they want an arm and a leg for them. Great finds!

Stephanie,
The one I was bidding on wasn't nearly as nice as the one you have posted, and it had chips out of it too! I thought it was a Pocket Watch holder! I didn't even know it was made by Speidel. The color in the numbers really make it pop! Thanks again for sharing it.

Like you, I sure hope others post their boxes, they are so beautiful, and I couldn't agree more with Tom, they can even be better than some watches. No wonder some collect these beauties!

My grandfather's watch that was passed on to me in 1959. Pretty neat plastic container with some creative advertising. Cool

A pic of my high school graduation watch still with it's original box. I just don't throw anything away.

Stephanie,
I like your watch designed Speidel case.

Here are a couple of other Spiedels, but actually I thought they were just for bands. I did not know there was a Spiedel watch.

Hi Tom,
I originally noticed your "spear type" box in first pic you posted and wondered about it.

Two fabulous watch boxes in your collection! Cool Speidel made some incredibly nice vintage watch boxes, didn't they!

Thanks for showing! Great thread!

Here is another interesting box. It is for the Bulova Sky King. The insides of the box are missing, but the rest of the box is pretty interessting. All it needs now is to be reunited with a watch.
