Re: Nope. I had a bad habit of taking things apart to see how they worked.

Hey! I got my first Timex for my first communion, too! It was a small handwind with numerals if my memory serves. I still have it somewhere and I've been thinking of digging it out just to know where it is. I would guess it to be about 24mm case size or so, gold case with white dial. I only wore it on Sundays to church for years as I was too immature to appreciate it.

I'm quite sure it doesn't run anymore though. Too bad. Once I locate it I might open it up and see what gives with it.

I recently got an old Hanhart mechanical stopwatch to run again after being dead for over a decade but its running fast (2 secs/minute) and what good is an inaccurate stopwatch? I need to learn how to regulate it.

Always Late!

Better later than never but better never late!

No. Mine was a Caravelle, but have no idea what happended to it. I recall playing Bingo as a kid. . . Jpeg Attachments Kelly 99 April 07, 2017 10:45AM
Haha, everybody remembers the Mickey Mouse watch Hemel 88 April 10, 2017 12:01PM
No, but I do have the first watch I bought myself. Jpeg Attachments BobbyMikeRedux 142 April 06, 2017 05:18PM

Nice lume shot! Hemel 97 April 10, 2017 12:03PM
Cool - had a Star Wars Texas Instruments LCD Digital as my first watch in the '70s, but this Jaz is my first nice one... Jpeg Attachments Mike D 145 March 26, 2017 07:19AM

Star Wars your first? Confused Gif Attachments Caveman 161 March 26, 2017 07:32AM
Great story! Hemel 88 April 10, 2017 12:08PM
Yep, was 11 when the movie hit the big screen. I might have had another before the Star Wars one - probably... Jpeg Attachments Mike D 118 March 26, 2017 08:35AM
No way likely you had a quartz Timex handed down in 1977 or earlier. BF Hammer 126 March 28, 2017 02:55PM
You're probably right - I can't remember - my dad had a lot of Timex mechanicals. (n/t) Mike D 89 April 03, 2017 08:10PM
Haha, lots of good stories Cheers! (n/t) Hemel 139 March 25, 2017 08:29AM
Alas, no. Caveman 129 March 25, 2017 02:26AM
No, and I'm sure I tried to take it apart. Smile PN 125 March 24, 2017 11:33PM
No, it was a sweet G.I. Joe watch that came with a folding toothbrush for some reason. zekeryan56 142 March 24, 2017 04:42PM
I just had to look for this. Jpeg Attachments BF Hammer 150 March 25, 2017 06:08PM
Haha yup those are them zekeryan56 126 March 26, 2017 11:01AM
Short answer: Don't have it. Hang around for the long answer though. Wink Jpeg Attachments BF Hammer 151 March 24, 2017 04:23PM
Nice Waltham! (n/t) Hemel 83 April 10, 2017 12:09PM
Bonus: My "first" watch before my first watch. Jpeg Attachments BF Hammer 145 March 24, 2017 07:45PM
Still, that's a cool Waltham. Thumbs Up Do you juggle? (n/t) Zeb 131 March 24, 2017 04:28PM
I tried to learn juggling, but I'm terrible at it. I can barely juggle scarves, and had small success with bouncing balls off the floor. (n/t) BF Hammer 153 March 24, 2017 04:36PM
I used to be pretty good before my joints disintegrated. I was a big spazzy nerd, so having such a skill was awesome. Smile (n/t) Zeb 134 March 24, 2017 04:48PM
It's our generation Hemel 127 March 24, 2017 02:11PM
I wish. Sad It was an early '60s Timex boys watch. Probably been gone 50 years now. (n/t) jhargrave 142 March 24, 2017 01:18PM
I probably chucked it in the mid 1980s as a teenager wearing a Casio calculator watch. (n/t) JohnSNY 161 March 24, 2017 01:11PM
