That's not iwc 🤪

I have the big black lacquered 48 pound box for this watch, but honestly prefer something small for storage as it takes a lot of space and gets dusty 🤣 plus it is in the safe a lot anyways.
I like these richemont service boxes, they have solid sides and when the watch is inside the box it does not touch the top of the case (pet peeve of mine)

Here is that beautiful monstrosity! (Different watch) ...  

I used to collect cigar humidors...

They gathered too much dust on the bookshelves. And the bookshelves got too crowded with watch brochures. So the watch boxes and humidors are all stored in a closet! They take up a huge amount of space!

I store all of mine in the shoe closet.

So I throw out shoes to store the watch boxes. Well, not quite. So, I stopped buying shoes but can't stop buying the watches. Ha!

Good. :)

I view it as the sum of all the pieces.

I actually prefer the massive wooden boxes, why not have a spectacular box to go with a spectacular watch?

I love the box!

I just don't store it in there. Mainly because I have a few in my closet, then others in my safe. I guess it does fit in the safe in the big box (it's a gun safe), but pain to carry 🤣 ideally I should just leave on the built in cabinets in my office in th... 

Then again it’s a nice problem to have ! 😜

Many ways to look at!

People buying something the cost of a car want a luxurious experience, but there are also those who want minimal or no box!I'm sure a boutique could accommodate either way.

You should ask them for the MB service box

I'm using MontBlanc portable pouch. I really like it because it's made of suede-like material. ...

That's all we really need, but us as collectors also like the specialty additional items 😁
