This watch is made complete with a lovely black leatherette covered OYSTER shaped period box. Please remember that vintage watches have survived for many decades by being treated well. Vintage watches are not for wearing while doing yard work, working out, or swimming. Vintage watches cannot keep time like their quartz cousins and will need altering on average between +-2 to +-5 mins per day.
They are a little more destructible than modern watches. Vintage watches also require periodic service and cleaning. Every couple of years, they would like their 20,000 mile checkup, oil change, and general service.
By taking care of your vintage watch, you will have years of great service, and a quality heirloom to pass to another generation. I describe all of my items to the best of my knowledge.
