What's in the box?

Well, that is an original 1960's polishing cloth! Don't see too many of those around anymore…

What else do we have?

Okay, a booklet explaining how to use a chronograph with different bezel scales and...

Let's take out the presentation box...

Sorry to disappoint ajb83, it is not NOS. Plenty of wear and tear on everything if you look closely!

Vintage Omegas with full sets like that don't come along to often, congrats on the find and a beautiful watch.

Thanks everyone, I've been meaning to do that for ages. I think most people just chuck all that stuff away after unboxing their new watch. I guess that is something to remember when we buy new, especially if it is a rare or iconic model.

That's cool!|>
How do you manage to maintain the box in such as good condition?
I remember reading threads stating how bad the box degrade over time...
Or it just the new one....:-s

the old one ages quite gracefully, the new one rots like a zombie's skin

to the OP: that's one nice sample! Enjoy in good heath
