What type of watch was your first?

Technically, my first watch was a Relic in the 90s. I still have it somewhere. But I consider my answer to be: E. None of the Above

The first piece I ever bought myself was a cheap fashion Analog/Digital combo watch at 13. Looking back, it was terrible -- folded links, stamped clasp, etc. But I didn't know anything about watches at the time, and honestly, Rolexes still came with stamped clasps back then. I still have it. I will take a photo of it tonight and update this post.

I'm so old quartz watches hadn't been invented yet.

Gotta love 'em! This isn't the one referenced in my post, but it's the first watch I consider to be an "adult" watch. It was my 18th birthday present:

First watch was a casio f91 in elementary school. First adult watch after school was a citizen calibre 2100 eco drive back in 2005.

I don't remember exactly what my first was, but the first I remember and loved was a Timex Atlantis. I still have a couple in my collection, even though the original(and a few others) has gone missing.

It was a square analog Quartz watch made by the brand: KA:OZ. 😅

Classic Casio F-105 was my first watch

There’s certainly been a lot of “first watch” threads lately.

Mine was a Timex mechanical watch that my grandfather gave me. It was in the mid 1970s. I was 5 or 6; I don’t remember exactly.

edit: Photo added. Taken earlier this week for a different “first watch” thread. It still runs, but I haven’t tested it to see how well it keeps time.
