Title: What is your very first watch?
Post by: cklim on June 07, 2015, 03:51:40 PM
I'm wondering whether you all still keep your very first watch?

Here is mine - boy size Comet manual wind, gift from my late father back in 1978.

The backcase. Interesting to see that it is not water proof but dust proof  ;D.

Silver-dial Citizen Automatic boy-size (with eagle logo IIRC) with stainless steel bracelet. My Dad was a watchsmith, so he chose for me a considerably good watch from his shop (bearing in mind that I was only in primary school then). I don't know about watches then, and I remembered being so envious of the boys with their RM10 Casio digital watches, as they laughed about my "old man watch". Watch was stolen some years after. I missed that watch :HammerHead:

My very first watch was a 'Cadet' brand boy sized.

I remember looking at the hand under the blanket at night as it glowed in the dark. This would have been around 1977-78. I lived in Johor Baru and the watch was purchased across the causeway in Woodlands..long gone now.

Don't really remember my first watch either, but the one that got me into horology was a G-Shock 6900. After buying it, I surfed YouTube for more G-Shock reviews, and found mechanical watches. The rest is history.

A Swatch quartz rubber strap watch. Got it when I was in primary school. Funny enough I hated wearing watches when I was younger but now I would never leave my house without one. Also my dad gave me another Swatch chronograph on an oyster bracelet and I think that propelled me into getting into watches...

Thank you for the compliment. It’s often overlooked perhaps because of the size but it’s a Rolex true and true. Pretty tough little watch, can take on almost anything in it’s path except perhaps scuba diving..
