    Default Breitling purchase from Birks?

    Hey guys, has anyone purchased a Breitling from Birks recently? I just got one today and it didnít come with the original massive a Breitling box, paperwork, pillow case, digital warranty card or anything. It came in a square Blue Birks box with a pillow case that seems to be made from recyclable material with a pillow on which the box was. Thereís a user guide and a hang tag and thatís it. No warranty card even and none of the nice big boxes that my previous Breitlingís came with.

    Whatís up with this? Is it because it was purchased from Birks or has Breitling in general has done away with that? Any ideas? If itís a Birks thing then I will likely return and purchase directly from Breitling.

    All I know is watches don’t ship in those fancy boxes, the AD boxes them, could be a Covid/supply chain thing?

    Was it a used watch? And you're sure it was Birks and not Firks?

    Brand new. Birks.

    I am finding some interesting articles online that say Breitling has done away with fancy packaging and moved towards blockchain or something and all digital. Still trying to confirm though.

    I thought this was a Birks thing and was gonna send it back but I guess it's gonna be like this regardless so I might as well just keep it.

    It's all digital now (they have NFT for my watch sent to me) and I made an online account and registered my older Breitling's too. I guess in a way it's less clutter but half the fun of these things was the presentation boxes. lol.

    If a watch company tried to send me an NFT for certificate of legitimacy I would return the watch.

    Shak, love the watch. I’ve had my eye on the same one, but with the Rose gold trim. Congratulations and unfortunate about the box

    My dad has the two-tone Rose Gold version in this which is why I went with this. Was contemplating this and the blue dial and since I picked up a Tag Monaco in Blue dial a few months ago, thought this would be better.

    I am going to be unloading a lot of my watches on Kijiji from Armani's and D&G's from my teenager days to Hamilton, Oris, etc. from when I first started collecting because I am running out of space so decide that I am going to keep a fewer number but all solid pieces.
