It makes perfect sense to buy the box if you already have the watch and you're looking to sell. Quick look at Chrono24 suggests a premium of about 20,000 USD for the box. Having the box will also increase the number of offers made on the watch, so it reduces your risk as a seller, even if the box is
With COVID-19 everyone’s day to day living expenses are way down, so there are people who now have extra money on hand and it is easy to get carried away when you want to win something at a prestigious auction. Phillips certainly carries some prestige in today’s watch world, right?
