A different Tact on this one.Which watches do you have that you've owned long before collecting watches started?These are watches
that rarely if ever get posted because they aren't considered as part of your forum collections.
I guess that would be another topic about the watches you've bought since being on forums.
Heres some of mine that I bought before forums.These were bought for various reasons like for dress, sports, special events.

Awesome Zodiac - - love it! Let's see more.

The watch I've had the longest is this 1966 Caravelle diver that I bought new in late 1966. I can't get the back unscrewed so it's never been serviced, but it still keeps near perfect time! Watches that you've owned for years? Icon_biggrin

I believe I got this watch around 1982 and I still wear this watch on my yard work days or working on the house. Funny thing is, as beat up as it is I didn't wear it while painting because I didn't want to get any paint on it! Pitiful I know!

That would be a pair of Hamilton Ventura my wife gave me about 20 years ago.
Waaay before "Men In Black".

The other would be a Citizen Skyhawk I bought for myself to celebrate a new job I thankfully still have almost 10 years later

Still have all 3

Great stuff Sean, I don't really have anything that fits that bill...

...when I started my dad pointed me toward good stuff and stuff to stay away from.

Course I did venture out a bit too...

I've never seen a box-o-rolex's before. Thanks for the pic's.
My mom got me a real nice Seiko for my H.S. graduation but I killed it many moons ago.
All I remember is that it had a green dial. lol!

Here are the watches I owned before I found these forums...The Tag was bought in 2001, so that is the oldest. Still own all of these.

I had a tag 6000 on red strap. you can see it in this photo.

It made it through 6 crashes. on the 7th crash though, it got pinned between my wrist and the concrete with the bike on top of it.
It ground the watch down to the mid case.saved my wrist though.
