Personally, I don't give a damn about the box. My shed has a container full of the "better" ones, but most get tossed. Even if I plan to flipping it, unless the box is really nice, it's gone.
What about you?

Now, I confess that given the nature of my hobby, the fact that I am a watch blogger, and my own reluctance to sell watches, I probably have more than the average bear, but this is crazy. There is no good reason to have this kind of packaging in the first place. So I am asking the watch manufacturers of the world to think twice about pumping more of this stuff into our closets, and ultimately, our landfills.

I tend to keep them since it makes it easier to re-sell with all the "original" packaging. Yes, it's a nice touch but cut a few bucks off the watch and ship in something simpler.

I keep most. Bernhardt used to have a nice wooden box but switched to a more useful travel case.
