Anyone ever hear of AP shipping boxes? Buying Grey

Contemplating buying grey. The seller claims to have the original shipping box from AP. It shows the stock photo, the ref # and an arrow with the word ďUPĒ.

Are these legit? Never seen this before. TIA

They have specific boxes with padding inside to accommodate the entire AP package and watch box - a coffin of sorts.

I donít recall seeing an arrow though but threw mine out

Yes, these are the boxes that watches come in.
There should be an arrow on each side of the stock photo with ''UP''
There should also be a QR code next to the rectangular with the ref. number.

Yea thatís it. Thank you. Seller seems legitimate but wanted to check all the boxes. Pretty cool to get this.

I assume AP wonít give them to you. Curious how they got it if so (back door)

You get it if you get your watches shipped to you so seller probably just kept it for the flip. Enjoy your new watch!

Interesting, thanks! It’s not done yet. Still on the fence.

Thank you! Let’s see if we can agree on price first. Looking at a 15500

Got that one directly from the BH Boutique last week, so yes, they do send boxes.

LWC was able to convince a boutique to give him the shipping coffin when he got his 15407

I couldn't even convince them to give me the bezel protector for any of mine.

Way back in 2017 when AP still had ADs (that gave killer discounts) I had this shipped to my door for 21k
