For me it was this Star Wars watch that my Aunt gave to me when I was in kindergarten. That is when the sickness began!

Wish I still had it but here is what she looked like. I got it in 1990 when I was 7.

I don't remember the exact first but I do remember my first decent, my dad gave me a Cartier Santos when I was a freshman at high school, bad move. I lost the watch, then was replaced by an Alfred Dunhill which I unfortunately also lost. He was so upset that when I asked for another watch, I go a Seiko 5. He still won't give me his Patek though.

My first ever watch was a wind-up Mickey Mouse watch that I received when I was about 4 years-old from my beloved grandparents as a reward for going to the dentist for the first time to have a loose tooth removed.. I remember the watch had an apple green band. I don't know where it is now, but it was the watch that started me in my path to WISdom.

Cheers,
Andy

It's so hard to see how this elegant beauty was a war watch! Man, them Italians do everything in style!

My first was a swatch when I was about five! Thinking about this has lead me to believe that this is where it all started for me! Been wearing a watch ever since! Wish I still had that watch! Still have the watch I got when I was 13 though an Adidas! replaced with an Armani when I was 18 and then with a Tag when I was 21 (which I'm wearing today and I'll have until I die or pass to my son)
