Satki statement.

Got balls to go for the one of highest end as your first.

Not many will go your route. Never really enjoy the path to "heaven".
It's your choice so good for you. Just wondering why you choose ap as your first.
I think its more like a statement for him than it is an appreciation of the watches and its many designs, functions and most importantly (to me), its history.

Different strokes for different folks.

My first was a Calatrava when I was 23/24. There was a Bvlgari Chrono that I got sometime when I was 21, but I'll always consider the Calatrava my first "real" watch. My next watch was a Skx007, and I've come to realize that this hobby really isn't for me and I'm just vain and will go for what I think looks the best on my wrist; movement, heritage and other intricacies be damned.

You hit the spot on that one. I wind my watches maybe once a month to make sure they're working, but that's about it. I wear them without setting the time or date mostly.

They're just man-jewelry.

No shame in that.

Think the Zelos looks quite good on flat vent diver strap.

Finally a watch manufacturer sponsor me a watch, albeit a entry level one.
My colleague lend me his war world 2 goggle and leather gloves for these shots.
