Apologies for thread necromancy...
Yesterday, on the train from Clapham Junction to Twickenham, 5:30pm. I was travelling to see Saracens v Ulster. A bloke opposite had a C11 Makaira on. I complimented him on his taste in watches but it was too crowded for a conversation!

I haven't seen any here in Colorado, however there are a few other forum members here in the Rocky mountains that I might run into one day.

Never seen one and only will se it when i give someone a CW as a gift :D

Not having AD's and being only know out of UK/Europe(maybe) by the iniciated on watches i don't realy think there are many CWL on Brazil.

I only know of 3 watches apart from my own here, and they were bought by some members of a brazilian forum after i showed my C60.

It would actualy be nice to know how many were shipped here to Brazil...see if my numbers are too far off or not.

Cheers,

This is going to sound really quite odd, but I once saw an original CW Malvern Aviator mk1, sat on a bedside cabinet whilst looking at houses to purchase. That almost edges on the side of a little creepy that I noticed, I know!! :oops:

I was at a works meal tonight and a colleague, who i'd met for the first time, commented on my C5. Turns out he's a wstch lover and a forum member for a number if years. I've still not seen another CW in the wild but it's good to have someone recognise my watch.

I've not come across any here in Charleston, South Carolina...USA. However, I am also extremely new to CWL...a matter of six days! So new, but I'm on the lookout for any CW's.
