First watch I ever purchased. I was 16 years old, in Jerusalem, 1985.
My first ever automatic bout at age 16 in the 80's a Seiko 5, what else do you buy that is inexpensive, keeps great time and can take a beating. I still have the watch and it runs great when worn but not much power reserve now. Only thing I have done to watch recently is replaced the plexi crystal. I love this watch, it's been half way round the world, seen a lot of women come and go, still looks great and I think it still looks quite fashionable even by today'sMy wife was digging around the basement today looking for Xmas decorations and discovered this. My old Fossil quartz watch I bought in the mid 90’s and wore the hell out of. Scratched plexi, worn crown, crusty sweat patina on the braided leather strap. What I find interesting is that it’s a 36mm watch with 42mm lug to lug. I go back and forth these days about whether or not a sub 38mm watch will be too small for me. Evidently it wasn’t 25 years ago. My wrist size hasn’t changed so I’m going to stop debating watch size and enjoy the ride.
So how many WIS’ out there have a first watch lying around the house? What does it tell you about your current tastes?
The “crustier” the better.

I can remember when Babe Ruth died and VJ Day.Who can remember back that far?!
But the answer is no.
I can only remember as far back as a Seiko Sports 100, which I sold for no good reason.
I have pictures from my youth while wearing other watches but they are unrecognizable to identify.
