I got a Submariner 16610 as a high school graduation gift from my parents in 1991. The watch still looks and works great. I have also added a few new ones along the way.

BLNR was my first Rolex at 33... Prior I had a Tag Carrera (Sold), Pam183 (Sold), IWC Top Gun (Sold), Kobold Spirit of America, Corum Ti-Bridge, and Chronoswiss Kairos. Since the BLNR I've added quite a few watches.

I was 23,.........about 46 years ago, haha!
GMT, Watches of Switzerland, Bond Street London.
It was 240 quid, a small fortune to me then.
I was nought but a lad and thought I wanted a TAG.
The very nice salesman soon put me right.
(Thank you, whoever, wherever you are)

I purchased my first Rolex (a Submariner) when I was 38 but I purchased my first new Lange at 25, so I guess I kind of did things backwards.

I was 59 when I bought my 114270. I wore a plethora of inexpensive watches before and even today, I still wear a plethora of inexpensive watches when the notion strikes.

31. Everything else I had in my collection is still in my signature. I believe I wore my Tudor Ranger the day I went to pick up my Submariner.

For the record, I’m still 31, for a couple more months.
