Whenever a client of mine is on the fence of purchasing a genuine box set for their watch, I always give them the same advice. When you purchase the original box, your essentially increasing the value of your watch by at least whatever you paid for the box, and in some cases even more than its purchase price!
The next time you are in the market for a watch box, think of it as an INVESTMENT. For example, recently a client of mine was interested in an Audemars Piguet Alinghi watch box set that I was selling. No doubt, the triple box set was expensive at $750, but the Alignhi is a limited piece and it is impossible to find a standalone box set without buying a new watch. He was hesitant at first due to the price, but after explaining the specifics to him he went ahead and bought the watch box. 3 months later my client decided he wanted to sell the Alinghi for something different. Instead of competing with the other incomplete Alinghis on the market without boxes, he sold his right away and for $1250 more than what he would have got without the box. The client sold his watch faster and made $500 on the purchase of the box set. It doesn't really get any better than that, and I was stoked that he was able to make some money on his watch all because he INVESTED in the original box set.
