Hello

I was recently fortunate enough to acquire a Hamilton "Odyssee 2001" watch (the later version with the baton markers). I would love to acquire an original empty box to house it - from either version - not picky. There is nothing now on eBay but I was wondering if folks here have tips on other ways to find such a thing. I realize this may be a silly question but I thought I would give it a try. Thanks, Ted

I believe the correct box, for the original one anyway, is what is known as the "Aztec" or Mayan calendar box and they seem to pop up on eBay quite frequently, and for reasonable cost.

This completed listing shows the correct box. The only thing to check for is that you get one with the wide cushion/keeper shown here. Sometime this box comes with a more usual looking keeper and that is for other models that used the same box.

Welcome to the forum! Actually there IS one on eBay currently (auction ending tomorrow night), so you might want to check again.
