What's your first automatic watch?

This is my Seiko SNZH55K1 and it was my first automatic watch that i bought more than two years ago. It restarted my passion for watches and i remember watching through the case back for so long and admiring how the movement works馃榿. I bought it just because i liked the way it looks. Now i love it for many more reasons! What was your first automatic watch?

Love it! you never forget your first automatic! a few years ago before I really knew the difference between automatic and quartz I happen to come across a little shop in the corner of a mall, It was a tiny little watch shop and I bought a white dial Buler pro champion diver. A year later I tried looking up the brand and it is as if they were wiped off the planet. But I love it and because its so odd and unknown I love it even more! Cheers 馃嵒聽

You're absolutely right, sir. There is a special connection with the first automatic watch. Cheers my friend. 馃槈

My first automatic is this Orient Classis. I got it from Santa ;) after hours of research. It was to be classy, elegant and to match all the shirts I wore everyday (prior the home office time). Even though it doesn鈥檛 have that much wrist time nowadays, I still like to wear it from time to time. Oh, one more thing. It has a see-through caseback. Something each first automatic watch should have :)

My first automatic was the citizen pepsi diver the smaller jdm model cost less than 100 quid. Still got it and its still pretty darn accurate.

Claasy watch. I am happy that my first also has that see-through case back. I remember look at it and wondering how it works and googleing to understand it馃榿.

That is exactly what I had in mind :) another thing I really enjoyed was (and still is) the power reserve indicator. Not that common thing but really helpfull for me at the beggining聽

I am a big fan of a pepsi dials, SKX being my favorite, but with that price these day, i thing i will consider the same as your Citizen. Looks very good! 馃槈

Absolutely! I wish more watches had that feature, especially so well displayed on the dial.馃憦馃徏

The SNZH55 was my 2nd watch, and the one that got me into modding! Mine came out of the box with a scratched bezel insert, and instead of sending it back I ordered a 55 fathoms style bezel insert and swapped that in. Also had more Nato straps than I could count! Got lots of wear, until I eventually gifted it to a friend聽

Still looks amazing especially with the tiny scratches that makes it better for me. I think you have to give that bad boy a little wrist time and it will make you smile, for sure.馃槈

Mine was the classic gateway auto, the SNK809. Out of my myriad of selling remorse watches it is number 1 for me. I can get another one but not the one I bought originally and I wish so much that I had kept it.聽
