    Default What was the first ever watch you put your hard earned $$$ on?

    Gifts from parents, relatives and friends don't count.

    Mine was a $2750 boy sized breitling quartz which I wore for 10 years. I still have it but still wondering why I didn't switch to bigger automatics earlier.

    IIRC it was a Bulova quartz for me, many many many years ago. I will move your thread. No worries

    More than 10 years ago, Dunhill Rectangular Quartz Watch.

    Instantly loved it. It is a classic. Seems too small on my wrist now.

    Does is pose any second hand value???

    In 1987 as a 17yrs old teen-ager woking as a part time waiter in Dennis Restaurant in Holland rd getting a monthly pay of $650. I spent $400+ to buy a gold plated leather strap sekio alarm quartz watch.
