Thinking about this again, the Locman above (which I sold years and years ago to start my real watch collecting madness) was actually AFTER this one. I bought the watch below in high school I think.1) very first watch I bought was sometime in the early 80's and was a Casio digital something. It was "wicked" cool at the time and inexpensive
2) my first expensive watch I purchased was in 1990. It was a Locman Briarwood Chronograph, which at the time was very expensive for me. Here is a picture of it -
It makes me laugh since I NEVER wear gold watches any more and I NEVER wear straps (bracelets only). So my tastes have changed a lot over the past 20+ years.
I STILL HAVE THIS ONE in my watch box BUT it never ever gets worn, lol
