Unboxing pics. |> or <| ?

On the one hand it's fun to pretend that you're opening a new watch, on the other hand, do we really need to see a picture of a roughed up cardboard box?

Re: Unboxing pics.

Unless the packaging it particularly weird or interesting I wouldn't. They are kind of entertaining though and I don't think it'd bad to post them. I'm kind of indifferent I guess.

I'm all for it!:-!

I know how excited I am on my "watch days" (which are better than Christmas by the way) and love to see others enjoy theirs!

They're hardly necessary - I haven't shot an unboxing ever - but they do add to the experience. And there's a certain flair to seeing all the bits and pieces come out of a well-packed watch box.

Re: Unboxing pics.

If the poster doesn't tell where it came from, a pic of the mailing label can be handy.

A pic that shows everything that's included with the watch is nice.

A comment about the adequacy or inadequacy of the shipping carton is useful.

Otherwise, it doesn't do me any good, but it isn't hard to scroll down past it either.

The recycled food containers are what started me taking unboxing pics in the first place :-d

The excessive tape does but me, though. I like to re-use my packaging (I have a couple boxes full of packing peanuts and bubble wrap) and I hate having to tear up the bubble wrap because it's too taped up to unwind neatly :(

Re: Unboxing pics.

I enjoy unboxing pics. Makes it feel like you're getting a new one yourself. Without actually getting one....or being able to afford one......or having to add it to your list of wants.....I just realized that I don't really like unboxing pics :-d j/k. I think they're great.
