My fiance and I have been working on clearing out our walk in closets, removing clothing, guns, stuff we don't use. Hell I found a AK47 and a GSG behind my shoe bin? Any way we had a new safe installed yesterday and we started to move about 25 watch boxes? I know better than to throw them away but does anyone have any creative ideas on what to do with them? My fiance suggested a plastic bin and move them up stairs? :bitenails:

Looks like the safe has a storage place. Not large enough? I'm kinda OCD about them (and I also don't have that many to keep up with) but I like them to be as protected as my watches (from theft, fire, etc) so I keep mine in the bottom of my safe.

I like your wife's idea as mine are all over driving my wife nuts. How about stacking them against a wall showing of the tops as some sort of display?

I too am a little OCD about my watch and jewelery boxes. I have a dedicated closet for them.

For an option on what to do with them, the coolest thing I have seen is a lamp. I have also seen this done with cigar boxes as well.

Wow if she is worried about how it looks in the closet. I am thinking you better get that tote before you wake up some mornign with the whole lot shoved up your .....Which is what my wife would do. :bitenails:

I sold a few of mine for about $50 a piece on eBay....then I started wondering why anyone would buy them and got worried about my willingness to sell fueling some knock-off artist's business of passing s**t off in real boxes. I have about 25 sitting around that I now keep because I like them and we have room.

Does anyone know why someone would pay that much for an empty box...any ideas?

The plastic bin plus silica gel is a good idea. I've been using freezer bags for mine

Some buy the boxes for older watches where the box and papers were lost.I have some older tag heuers that I bought the vintage boxes for,so not all of them get bought to put replicas in them.
I keep them all in a closet with all straps,links and documentation with them.Since I buy and sell quite abit,having the boxes helps the sale.
