20 years old, bought a black dial Milgauss (no green crystal). That was 12 years ago, actually wearing the watch today.

Before that my daily goto was a Breitling Chronomat Evolution.

43, SubC 116610LN. Growing up, the sub date was what I pictured when I think of Rolex.

31 for me. My first was a DJ 16013 and was a gift. Later that year I got a 16170 and it's been one after the other since.

If you count tudor, the I was 25 and it was a vintage big rose 7962. If not, then a used 6494 when I was 26. I dont have either any longer, and I'm now in my mid 40s.

I was 20 in 1970 when I got a 34mm OP blue dial, for $120 IIRC. Pawned it for an unmentionable in 1976. That I still have.

Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

40, never really had an interest and all of a sudden wanted one. Bought a YM Rhodium at my AD and have been loving it. Was wearing a Tag Aquaracer for several years and will still wear at as a “beater”. Now on to the next one hopefully!
