Worth its weight in gold: The omega replica watches

It can be viewed straight on one side or angled to the point of the other. When laid flat on its edges, it evokes the pediment, tympanum, and structure of a classical building.

This "box" was a tour de force, and a collector's item on its own merits. It ranks alongside the cork boxes housing the first Nautilus and in which the 1969 Omega Speedmaster Tribute to Apollo XI was displayed. It was remarkable like the watch it contained, and took as its inspiration a magnificent piece of antiquity from the British Museum. Midas stamnos is a famed lidded pottery vessel that combines aspects of amphora and vase. It was made around 440 BC. The black ground is decorated by red figures representing Silenus' life before Midas.
