    Default how to mantain Omega red box?

    does your Omega red box crumble into pieces?
    happens to my 1st and 2nd Omega's boxes... i got fed up with the first box and so i threw away cos it crumbled and made a mess :P

    Any advice on how to keep it in pristine condition and still looks good?

    TIA!

    Its synthetic leather hence easily deteriorate under singapore climate - hot and humid
    One way is keep the presentation box in cool dry environment eg in a drybox

    Doesn't happen to boxes that use genuine leather

    Did you add any drying agent together with the box?
    Mine ok after 4 years, i add silica gel into the box and wrap with plastic bag.

    My box also deteriorated quite badly... Omega such a big brand should provide at least a nice wooden box!
