5) Rotary Chronospeed (Chavitimer) £69.99

6) Rotary Aquaspeed second hand £39.99

8) Alpha Planet Ocean £69.99

9) Alpha Paul Newman Daytona £120

10) Parnis Portuguese £89.99

11) Casio Edifice EQB500 £300

I remember my first watch, it was a Smiths boys watch. When it no longer told accurate time I think it was replaced by an Ingersoll.

When I got a job, I bought a cheap watch and replaced it if faltered at telling time. My Dad and relations bought me a Timex and Sekonda and they went into the "draw" because I had "better" digital watches I bought from petrol stations.:biggrin: 

That's much the story until the late 1980's, when I saw a Citizen 7 and simply wanted it. I hated that it was being battered at work and retired it, I went back to disposables until I saw the Vostok Neptune. Bad move.:laugh:

I'll post most of the pictures I have of my watches in due course, if I haven't already.

I still have the Citizen 7, I just don't have pictures of it. My Nikon 990 broke, my 'phone has a cr@p camera and having spent years in the photographic industry I don't care much for cameras.:laugh:

I can't go back into the mists of time when I had watches before realising I actually liked watches, but I still have my first watch - a cheapie Oris my dad bought for me when I was at school (it was during an Oris bad period), plus a Cronel, Gisa and Pulsar, all manual wind and now battered and bruised and in need of some serious TLC.

More recently, I have parted with a Christopher Ward Bluebird, Seagull, Damasko DA36 and very recently a Seiko and Tag FI.

I have 9 others, 8 of which I actually wear, which hopefully will be added to shortly.

So not too difficult for me.

If only I could count properly! That should read 10 others, 9 of which I actually wear.
