The other day I let a solicitor in and the first thing I noticed was his orange C6 on bracelet, I flashed my C60fle and I think he was really impressed, or worried not sure which

On Saturday i saw a Policeman wearing a C6 and exactly the same model as mine. He had his on a black Nato and said it was his most reliable work watch and that he also owns a C11 and would always buy CW's in the future.

Spotted a chap in a coffee shop today wearing a C11. V pleased - it's the first time I've spotted another CW in the wild. Looked good too. Didn't have the chance to say anything unfortunately.

Just the once... a Royal Navy officer I was in a meeting had his SS C20 on the table in front if him. During a tea break I picked it up... and bought my C5 Aviator the next morning :-)

Never seen a CW in Denmark, and I have only noticed one other danish member of the Forum for a very long time. What a pitty, that we danes always buy the well known watchbrands Tissot, Certina, Seiko, Citizen and more.

Cirrus......does that comment you made mean you took the man's watch....and returned the following day and swapped it for your C5?

Also I found during my time on a "Grey Funnel" line ship, that the officers couldn't tell the time, they just talked about the "Morning" watch....the "afternoon" watch...."first dog"...."second dog" .......etc......and kept steering the ship around in circles rather than making straight for the tropics and the beach....strange bunch matelots.........

No luck so far, except mistaken my boss' B&R for a black vintage C11! I'll try harder next time.

No, I just looked at it and was impressed enough to buy one. He was an ET, so I trusted his judgement :)

Was at the Le Mans classic earlier this month and saw a chap wearing his C70 Monte Carlo. Thought it looked so good that i came back and ordered one in the sale!

In the Philippines, none at all. But I suspect in due time, there will be sightings.

I've never seen anyone wear it either, but then again I don't really walk up to people ask. My brother just bought the C5 Malvern Automatic - Galvanic Dial and is waiting it's arrival, so I guess he's going to be my first person.
