Previously I had suggested that I probably would not buy one of those wooden storage and display cases given the opportunity, but I found this near-perfect one on Ebay from Florida and well, what more can I say?
Very light wear on the cardboard box . . .
And look what I found inside . . .
Alright, the watch was not really inside the box.
Of course the box is from a later period and probably housed a garden variety Enicar - if it is not blasphemy to say so, but it does give the watch an appropriate "throne" upon which to sit.
There were a couple of minor scratches that buffed out with Novus. The back has a couple of deep scratches that will mostly go unnoticed.
