    I know they've had a bunch of varieties over the years - metal, plastic, black leather, brown leather, wood, etc... Perhaps this thread can evolve to discuss all of them, what types there were and which watches they were matched to.

    But to start, I'd like to focus on the wood boxes with embedded coin that were used for MM / HP / 12 Gauge until they got replaced by the plastic ones. Though they're mostly identical, there seems to be some variations. Hopefully there have been enough Oakley watch collectors over the years that together we can define what all came with what.

    First off, there's the one with this coin:

    Oakley watch boxes - 20160426_183629.jpg

    It has a white interior and seems to be mostly associated with the MM. Was it also used for the HP? Any other watches? Ever seen one with that coin and a black interior?



    Next, the one with this coin:

    Oakley watch boxes - 20160426_185355.jpg

    These I've seen with both white and black interiors and seem to be mostly associated with the 12 Gauge. Any other watches come with them?



    And then there's one with this coin, has less relief than the other two:

    Oakley watch boxes - 20160429_203116.jpg

    It has a white interior. Don't know which watch it was associated with or if there was a version with a black interior. Anybody have any info?

    Were there other versions of this same box with a different coin?

    I believe (and may be incorrect) the 2nd box also associated with the HP.

    Let's ask @Dyeraudio

    The first one came with 12 gauge. I have to double check what color the inside is.

    I think the tags are pretty useless so I've been doing that for a while just to see if anybody notices. A couple people have but you're the first to publicly post about it. As a prize, I'll add another one... :D
