Here's mine. It's my grandfather's retirement watch from 1949. He subsequently painted the hands white for my grandmother to wear, until her eyesight got too poor. It was given to me by my father for my 12th birthday:
... which probably wasn't such a smart idea :oops: After a year, it wasn't running. I took it to a cheap watch mechanic for a service a few years back. Unfortunately I neglected to tell him not to 'restore' the hands
For my 13th birthday, I got my first new watch, a Timex A much better choice for a kid that age. Here it is, modelled by my 8 year old son:
This is one of the last mechanical Timexes. The case was made in Scotland, but the rest of the parts and assembly was in Taiwan. The bracelet is a recent addition. It's a 1950s English sheet-metal 'homage' to the Oyster Stretch. Very easy to remove the links.
Does anybody else still own (and use) their first watch.
