    Your watches history

    Hi guys.. im relatively new to the site and new to collecting watches. I have this timex ironman. Was a gift from my gf for my birthday. This is my work watch. I am an advanced paramedic and wear this watch for every shift. Its my least expensive watch but love it caus its what I wear most. Fun fact about it is that it has personally called 3 time of deaths (so far). Anyone else have a special bond with a watch? Cheap or expensive

    Hopefully no more "fun" for you then.

    Not fun. But part of life. And unfortunately part of the job

    Welcome! The watches in my collection are generally purchased in conjunction with a significant achievement. None them see the kind of things you do, I'm sure. The first watch I was ever gifted is a Timex Iron man and wore it for all outdoor activities up through high school.

    The watch I have a special bond with is one i purchased last year, my Timex "21 series" and here is why:
    1. The first watch I ever owned was a Timex
    2. This watch was made in 1968 (the year I was born)
    3. It is a manual wind (I like winding it every morning)
    And yes it is running

    My first watch was a Timex too, not sure where it is now. I believe it is somewhere in my parents' house. I have an Ironman now that stays in my gym bag for exercise, tennis, basketball and soccer days.

    This little Eco-Drive was the first decent watch I ever purchased for myself. I bought it with some of the relocation money I received from my current employer about 7 years ago. I still wear it regularly, and it works great.

    Very cool. The thread grabbed my attention as I have been part of the AED (and defibs in general) industry for 20+ years. Props to the paramedics.
