Hi Dan,
This company, Frederique Constant, was a sponsor at our  2005 AHCA Conclave 
in Winston-Salem, NC, USA.  They produced a beautiful watch that comes with 
a 1/18 KYOSHO model Austin-Healey Tri-carb with a BRG exterior, Black 
interior and fabulous detail.  The doors, bonnet and boot open, steering 
works, etc.. The entire product was delivered in a beautiful wooden box as 
you describe (but not a humidor).  Their representative was here and was 
most knowledgeable regarding our cars, although I can't recall his name.
Of course, I'm also not reliably sure of my own address!
I am not sure that this is still available, although it was sold for a while 
through the AHCA magazine, Healey Marque.
