Wrist shot like this get me poisoned easily. Just a curious question. What age were you all when you all purchased your first luxury watch?
Need to define what luxury watch is..

I bought, or rather, my parents bought me my first G Shock at 14.

Yea I guess luxury is subjective.. Let's pin it to watches above 1k?

Erikas makes nice straps.. They're better off than jackostraps imo! But just a tad expensive after shipping and all. Check out the recent article on monochrome-watches.com where it was actually taken up to and photographed in space!

Late bloomer here. 1st luxury watch was a Tag Heur Carrera automatic at 39. Before that was PC, xbox game addict so life revolved only around that...haha.

The Tag is still my most worn watch as of today.

Yes it's from Erika's Originals. I've only had it for a couple of days but first impressions are that they are very high quality, elastic without being overly so, and due to its super adjustability, you can get a perfect fit (as opposed to conventional straps and natos with strap holes. Also love that Erika's Originals design only needs 1 layer of fabric beneath the watch, compared to other brands which need 2 layers like a normal nato would.

My first was a Sinn at the age of 28.

Things escalated quickly with a Lange soon after.
