    Hi,

    I just picked up this fine example of a WWI deck watch. It came with the internal wood box but not the outside shipping container. Looking to find one. Any leads?

    Thanks,
    Cincy

    There is a cabinetmaker who makes the boxes. They also frequently appear at NAWCC regional meeting and there will almost certainly be at our National Meeting in Louisville next July.

    The outer box from a Waltham flat deck watch from the same period will work, but will be incorrect in details.

    By the way, the outer box is not for shipping. It is designed to be attaced to a workspace and provide safe storage for the instrument on board ship.
