Icon20 Project: Which box belongs to which model....?

Hi friends,

Just a few months ago I realised that I have some watches and not the appropriate boxes.
From reading many posts here I saw that there might be the interest to get an overview which box reference belongs to which model.
Said this it is not that easy and time consuming whilst knowing that many ADs just give and gave out watches with boxes they have in stock.
I thought about it and started from another point
Just builded 3 cluster (watch reference / date of purchase and box reference) and put it into a sheet.
Attached you find the output and there might be the interest to complete that further

My 168000 when originally bought came with a 68.00.55 box which is incorrect according to the info above. Is this a commonplace occurance with AD's in the past?

Axel,
That is a great idea
I can't help with any box references unfortunately though as I'm not convinced any of my watches have the original boxes.
Good luck with it and I'll be sure to use the reference in future.

Hi, I'm a new user in this forum. I have been doing a lot of research here and it seems like a really nice place. I inherited a 1655 from '72 from my grandfather, unfortunately without box or papers. Now I'm looking for a box that would match it. However, it seems that that the connection between box and watch is rather blurry. So far I have info that 68.00.2, 68.00.3 (and as listed above 06.00.06) would fit a 1655 from the 70's, as well as 11.00.2 (which I think might be for the 80's(?)). Could anyone verify this information or tell me what the connection is and which box I should look for to be sure about originality?
Thanks a lot.
Kasper

Are we talking about the green box?

Because it seems you get whatever box your AD feels like giving you. The watches and boxes are shipped to an AD separately, without a particular watch in mind.

For example, each of my 2 SS Daytona's were presented in different size boxes, as all Rolex does is ship each watch in a BIG shipment with a couple of dozen watches like this...

Thank you.
Now the right question as to Box # can be asked of seller's, "who tho sometimes thru no fault of their own", are getting in most cases good money for a box they're selling that is not appropriate for the buyer's ROLEX timepiece.

Many thanks for such a useful reference source. Taking my own watch as an example (4112 Cellini) the box number on the list is 49.00.08 whilst my actual box number is 49.00.71. Does that mean that I have the wrong box or merely that the last two digits in the Box number vary over time? My watch is a 1995 build.
What does "Date" refer to - is it the date the particular model commenced? (the "Date" listed for mine is "ott - 83"
Thanks, Rocky.

Hello,
I don't think that box is remained the same after 12 years. Unfortunately I have no other Cellini Box References.

Danely, the number on my box is on the trailing edge of the bottom of the box. It also says " Montres Rolex S.A. - Geneve Suisse " with the Rolex crown at either end of that line of print and the serial number of the box below that line.

WOW!! That may not be very useful information (as long as we know the watch is genuine), but it certainly is very interesting.

I always wondered if those numbers at the bottom of the box made any sense!! Now I know!!

Many thanks - JJ

Perhaps you will not find the right box, but you can go near it.

Edit: I believe the '05 models got the XL current model with the ripple on top otherwise prior to this they had the "president 81.00.09".
