How Rolex Ships:
Brand new timepieces are safely packed in these plastic protective cases (referred to as watch coffins by Rolex collectors) along with warranty cards and hang tags, then they shipped to authorized dealers with a secure courier in a large steel container. Most people don’t realize, the green box you get with a new Rolex watch is actually shipped separately from the watch itself.
The cases are never marked with “Rolex” or a coronet logo, so they are perfect for watches from other brands as well. These cases are guaranteed to come directly from Rolex and have originally been blessed with have a Rolex watch inside. The hard outer shell is marked 4290911 which may be a reference number of some sorts. the inside foam holders are marked 4290912.03 and 4115772-06.
How It Works:
The foam insert helps keep your watch in place. There is a flexible foam strip that lays between the bracelet and the plastic case to prevent any marks from rubbing against the plastic. The hinged door snaps shut. The top and bottom of the case have grooves so that multiple cases can be stacked on top of each other – perfect for keeping a big collection organized.
Note: Some cases have a square hole as pictured, and some are solid. The square hole cases are more common but the solid ones are more desirable. Rolex still uses both, and they seem to be random. We cannot guarantee that you will receive one style over the other, but we will try to make sure all cases you receive are the same style.
