    I wish I still had it - No idea what happened to it.

    If I ever find one that's not beaten to hell and/or bezel worn out or split/cracked - I'll buy it.
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    Mine was a Raketa, like so

    When I was 10 or so, my parents bought me a horrific ladylike Oris


    All the cool kids had Timex military watches on colourful nylon straps

    So when I got into watches, I knew I had to have


    Guess my watch tastes set in early :-)

    Very much so. I wouldn't buy it to wear, just for my own sentimental reasons.
    I was 13, and a bit of a 'shrimp' at that. I had it on a studded bund strap (the like of which I've never seen since), and as far as I was concerned; it was 'the business'.
