We started to look into boxes for the Funky 70’s Memovox, but I thought it would be fun to take a detour and take a look at some 1940’s boxes… Let’s have a look at the reference E 109 (left) and the E 159 (right): Two watches sharing the same case, but with different movements inside.

Box Play 1940’s: Omega Suverän reference 2400-7
