Mind you, I'm fairly new to CW so perhaps I've missed them.
I've not seen anyone yet but a lot of people have seen mine and gave them the web site.

Only last week I saw a security guard wearing a C600 and it was stunning and far better than the photographs that are posted. I had to to have a chat with the guy and he was delighted with it and I'm now thinking of buying one. If only I could see a C60 GMT in the flesh.

I casuually deposited the catalogue on the coffee table at work a while back. No takers yet. Miserable bunch of one-watch Lizzie Duke shoppers they are, I reckon, apart from 1 Rolex, 1 Omega (both ladies) and 1 Mondaine.

Yes, we lived there for a year around 1985 (in fact, Kate & I got married at St Joseph's on Garden Road). We go back every few years, so maybe we could have a CW gathering of our own...

...and maybe get the trip sponsored if we promise to do some advertising around Central :thumbup:

Bring it on Jimbo and Drmarkf! I bet Chris will be overjoyed to notice some oriental presence and might put us on the next CW mag :lol:

The only other people I come across wearing CWs are the friends and family I have introduced to the brand.

I saw a guy on the Metro this morning wearing a C5. Didn't get a chance to say anything, too many people. It was my first CW spotting in the wild.

I have never seen anyone wearing a CW.
Of course I am located in a plains state in the US - I don't expect to see one

My 1st sighting:

Just this Saturday I saw an airline pilot in the Denver airport, he was wearing a C60 Trident pepsi GMT.

I would have said hello but I was on the up escalator, he was on the down escalator.

I wouldn't even have known about CW watches if it wasn't for an article in a watch mag. I have never seen one other than my own and I doubt that I will be able to convert any of my friends as they all think that the likes og Guess and Fossil make very nice watches! One of them even thinks that TAG makes the best watches in the world! TBH I prefer it like that as it makes my watch more exclusive! And to add to a post by another member, TBH I know only 3 people that own genuine Rolex and Rolex makes millions of watches a year!
