    I actually prefer a smaller box. I don't really know what to do with all the big boxes accumulated over the years... Anonimo is not doing that bad in this department. Other brands are really going big. What for?

    I quite like the wooden box, and have no experience with the leather so it gets my vote.

    I think the wooden box adds a nice touch to the package although less practical..

    Boxes serve virtually no real purpose if you bought the watch to wear, so honestly I would rather they didn't spend more than a dime on making the box, and lower the price accordingly. If I am not wearing my watch, it goes on my winder, or my watch case, along with the rest of the collection, and the box occupies storage space until (and if) I want to move it along--and then, the lighter the better, since the heavier the box is, the more it costs to ship. Because of this, I prefer a small, inexpensive, well constructed box like the Oris TT1 box, or something similar.

    For manufacturers is not a higher cost involved in the box or high shipping cost because is part of the timepiece... the new leather one looks like the Omega, Oris, box... small in size and the wooden box as can I read here some people said useless remind me of some Ball Watch Company, IWC, Baume et Mercier,Jaeger-leCoulture, Cartier and Panerai Boxes.

    So if they reduce the size or quality is not going to impact on price for sure.... but again to me is a nice presentation on a well constructed box... if not look the first Anonimo Boxes just simple, small magnetic seal and like a foam in the inside... Ugly and cheap... at least the leather one now is better looking box but my vote is for the nice and useless wooden box.

    The box adds to the presentation of the watch and I think it is very important to put the right amount of detail and effort in the box, paperwork, goodies etc...A few mths ago I bought a Meccaniche Veloci Ace Cafe GMT and the box and presentation was simply awesome..Especially for such a cheap watch..Presentation is very important so yes to me the BOX does matter, including the strap and strap changing tools (and paperwork)..

    I've had both, but my vote would still be for the wooden box. Just seems to have more of a classy presence.
