24 and it was an explorer II. It was a daily wear watch for 12 years. Still love wearing it, however now it's part of a rotation as my collection has grown.

In 2001 when I was 22, I purchased a mid-size YM1 two tone w/ slate dial for $4200. My wrist was smaller at the time so the 35mm YM1 looked great on my wrist.

I guess it's inappropriate to ask a girl her age when she bought her first Rolex but that's me at 'that' age.....

36. I almost bought the first when I was 32 and regretted afterwards I didn't, because the subs price had increased by ~1K.

39. Green Sub. I've never been into watches until I bought a employee a black Sub for Christmas a few months back. Then it changed.
