As George Takei would say if he were here, looking at that watch, "HO, MYYYYY!! " I love all things ART DECO, Bobbee, and that box has it in spades, as does the watch itself. And the watch is gorgeous, sir! I'm very jealous, but still nonetheless very happy for you in getting to own a classic like that one...enjoy!!

And for His Deadness:

Have a terrific Freitag, all!
Okay, so I was wrong... http://thewatchforum.net/forum/index.php ...but I was never so glad to be incorrect... ;)

Want that one!
My box has a guarantee and dedicated Christmas hang tag too, along with a 1950's lapel badge for a PA museum that I found under the inner base.

Thank you, sir.

I've had a few Caliber 1365 DeVille's. The movement is intriguing.

Being on vacation should provide you ample opportunity to post more, then..

Your Boxer is such a handsome pup, Smells. Makes me miss mine; gone over four years now.

Kevin, the Phoibos watches really are well done for the price.

A switch for the night.
