For the first time today I was in a meeting in London when I spotted a fellow attendee wearing a CW (a C11 auto on some sort of aftermarket black leather strap).

It wasn't the sort of meeting that was suitable for having a casual chat about watches, unfortunately.

However, it was quite an upmarket gathering (excepting yours truly, of course) in that also attending were a JLC Reverso, a JLC Master Moonphase, a 2-tone Datejust II, a Cartier Tank of some sort and a couple of gold dress watches (possibly Omegas from the 1960/70s).
There was plenty to try to identify during the bits of the meeting that didn't concern me.
Regards,
Mark

Were there any people at the meeting besides yourself? ;D

Not long after I started looking at CW's. I met a guy on a friends stag do wearing, what i think was a C5 Malvern. He didn't seem to know anything about it, or didn't want to talk about it. even after complementing him on it and inquiring as to his thoughts as i was looking at buying one.

Yeah, very funny.

:clap:

I hadn't seen a TT DJ II on the wrist before, and they really do look very blingy.

Aparrently I missed one yesterday as someone came in wearing a C60, I was told. He was very surprised that the sales staff knew the brand. :)

It would be a heinous crime if your staff didn't know about CWL; wouldn't it Kip?

It certainly would, but no chance of that happening. :)

I like thought that 'strangers' wear a CW. I guess I'm one of them.

Well that will work out prefect. I sell the beer.
If we had omegas... With our watch powers combine. Captain planet ocean could be our hero.

Saw a C70 BRG (or similar) on a spectator when I was at Lords in July.

Only time I've seen one out there.
