    BALL WATCH BOX, A CHANGE WOULD BE NICE ????

    All my Ball watches has the "Green Box" over the years.
    They did have a period the outer box was not good quality "Paper unstuck on corners"
    I think a upgrade would be nice ????
    They change watch designs but I think a box change to something new ?
    Any thoughts
    Cheers

    The original box was blue, and wasn't much better. As with the green box, the outer "skin" (on inner and outer boxes) flakes, crumbles and generally deteriorates. Their limited edition boxes are, on the other hand, way overboard, but perhaps suitable for their very best (expensive) watches. The blue was for my Arabic, the green for my Voyager, and the wooden box for my Flying Scotsman. I do agree, you would think Ball would have realized long ago that there are better ways to make their boxes, at least for the main offerings in their catalog.

    Impressive collection of watch boxes, TF. The limited edition is pretty sweet for a single box.

    I have the green ones compared to other boxes/brands, we could get a lot worse, IMHO, and I have......

    I am so used to associating green with Ball watch boxes, I am not sure I could take another color.

    I agree that the Ball box should continue to be green--I just wish they used more durable materials to make them, but yes, there are many other brands with much less attention to their packaging.

    Another one of those fun WUS-only double posts--does ANY other site have this system glitch?--have NEVER seen it elsewhere.

    Makes me glad that I went back to my AD just after I received my EH NEDU to change the green cardboard box for the EH diving case with the gimmicky lifebuoy inside it.

    All in all a nice watchbox is great for the first hour until I slap that shiny new watch on my wrist and relegate the box to my cupboard...

    I agree that the quality could be better, but generalizing here; I don't think a lot of people store their watches in the original box and Ball (like most watch companies) know that.

    I think the point is that Ball in fact does spend a bit of money on their boxes, but for some odd reason, they use defective materials--so money not well spent, regardless of what people do with their boxes after purchase.
