    I bought mine just over 15 years ago I think. Still looks new.

    A lot of if sentimental value - something I can never sell even though it doesn’t get that much wrist time

      I bought my first one 22 years ago. I was 20 years old and had to have a seadweller. I wish I still had it!

        First one was I think when I was 22ish and if I remember correctly my old man came with me and part paid towards it- from Blowers in Hull. A TT Submariner - which got traded in against my 16808- full gold submariner a few years later- That I still have and it will be one of the last to go.

          TT black Sub which I bought new in 1992 when I graduated from Uni.
          It's my go-to watch and most of the time makes me wonder why I have any others...

            I was in college in 1970 and my PT job boss was going to Switzerland and wanted a GMT badly. He got it, and asked me if I wanted a Rolex. I gave him $100 and he brought me a OP 34mm blue dial, IIRC. It was $120 + $6 doody, I believe. I traded it in 1976 for a firearm which I still have.

            My oldest Rolex I still have is a 16600 SD from 2005.

                  My first Rolex was a 36mm Explorer bought new in 2000. I thought it would be my only watch but it’s long gone, traded for something else.

                            About 15 years ago - an OP Date.

                            A slippery path!
