The case and packaging is pretty simple, a hard black cardboard box for the outer packaging and the actual presentation box isn’t that much different. The box opens up to reveal a white or cream-colored plastic interior with the Gycine logos and the pillow on which the watch rests. For the most part, packaging from Glycine seems to differ between market and model, from the more basic like this example to solid wood boxes for some others. I think a nice box is always nice, but for the most part, it ends up in the closest 5 minutes after I get the watch, so not necessary.
