    Which watch would you send back in time to your teenage self?

    When I was a schoolboy (back in the 90's) I didn't have money for any fancy watch or indeed more than one watch at a time. I did take a great interest however in whatever I was wearing at the time and would have been quite proud of the little Casio / Accurist / whatever.

    I was wearing my snk809 today and it occurred to me that I would have really loved it back in school - much more than now, as it would have been my only watch, not just a part of an adult outlet for disposable income and dissatisfaction

    What would you send back to your 16-year-old self?

    A Rolex Submariner (the model right before the idiotic ceramic bezel craze hit this iconic model).

    If I could literally own only one watch for my entire Life, that would be it. Why not enjoy it as a teenager?

    I would send back one of those watches with erotic scenes on the dial, my 16 year old self would love it. Also, a sports almanac (assuming that jerk Biff didn't get to it first).

    The most expensive watch in the world. So then I could sell it and get a nice set of wheels and be set for a good chunk of my life.

    Realistically in high school, I wouldn't get anything too nice. Might as well walk around with a big fat wallet tied around your neck.

    A watch with the upcoming lotto numbers engraved on the back.

    None, 16 year old me would not have appreciated it. But in the spirit of the thread, probably a Skagen or DW 5600
