Never. That's what makes us CW owners special. We're so rare. :lol:

Two CW asylum escapees happen to book the same flight for the same time and day and sit side by side, both wearing CW watch? That’s rare indeed! :wahreliebe:

Black C7 on the 8:02 Dunfermline to Edinburgh. Very nice piece and first in the wild proper.

Bloke in lift at work this week wearing C6 Kingfisher with black face (the watch, not him.) He didn't see my C60 Trident GMT. We both had clients with us so I felt it would have been rude to start a discussion about CW to the exclusion of everyone else. Will now have to seek him out in an office building with 2,500 people in! :?

Another colleague noticed my watch the other week. He knew exactly what it was and said he was trying to decide which CW to buy in order to give his Omega a rest.

I live in the US. I would be very surprised to see another CWL in the wild.

I ordered a watch today, over the phone. When I gave my post code, I was told that there are two CW customers in my Close, and which one was I? I shall keep an eye out. Anybody else on the Forum live in small village in mid-Beds?

I have never seen a CW watch when out and about,and I do try to notice the watches people have on.
I think people just tend to go for the big names,but they don't know what they are missing :D

Agree with all of this! I do find myself trying to identify peoples watches when out and about!Never seen a CW but the name is out there, a friend of mine did consider but then went with Tag.To an extent people will always go mainstream but CW is deffo on its way up and getting exposed. My old C70 DBR1 got a lot of comments from friends and they always wanted me to take it off and have a closer look. Little things like that will see the brand being spread, as it rightly deserves.

One c3 cream faced malvern chrono and a c8 black mk 2 in my office of 65 folks. Cw Tends to be a popular purchase with long service awards and word is spreading as there are three potential new customers poised to buy, although apparrently i am not helping narrow down the choice given that i wea a different watch by rotation most days!

I really like the Americans. There is only one thing; they know almost everything about -
there own country ... but beyond those borders :löl:
lol I am rereading this thread... one of our problems is we have quite a bit of space in those borders... so if I knew everything about the US I would be happy... course I have only been to 49 states... did go to France (seemed rather small)
