After purchasing my fair share of micro-brand watches, I've acquired a collection of fancy waterproof cases and tubes the watches came packaged in. I've always thought this was neat.
Have we come to expect it now?
Considering the cost of everything that arrives adds to the overall cost of the purchase, would you be happy with a less fancy shipping container if it meant the quality of the watch was increased?
Would you buy a micro-brand watch if it was shipped in a standard watch box (eg. a basic Seiko 5 box) or a sturdy, reusable cardboard tube, or have we come to equate the fancy container with a quality product?
Thanks, and have a great weekend,
