My father, age 96, recently gave me his Rolex watch which was a gift from my mother in 1961 following a European tour which included Switzerland. I've just had the watch refurbished by Rolex, and it came out beautifully (although very expensive). The watch is a Model 1600/34 Oyster Perpetual Datejust.

My father wore the watch for 40 years before putting it in his drawer; and of course there were no papers or box with the watch when I received it.

I didn't think to ask Rolex for information about the box when it was sent in for refurbishment several months ago.

Can anyone advise how I might find out what style of box the watch would have come in at the time, and where they might be available? Thanks for your help

Charlie, congrats on a fine heirloom acquisition. You may also want to check out timezone.com, they have a vintage forum and may offer some assistance. You may try a search on ebay just be careful.
