Saw someone in the office a few weeks ago wearing a C60. Wasn't in a position to comment though as it was actually in a fairly crowded lift, and he was talking to another colleague. It's a big building (3000+ people), so no idea who either of them were to chat later.

Here in the DC area I've been wrist gazing for CW's for over year with no joy. For me it's kinda cool to be the only one who has ever heard of the brand. Then last week, I'm out in the cul-de-sac with a neighbor, who I see almost everyday and whose children play with mine almost everyday and I look down at his wrist and what do I see; a C61 on a Nato, quite unbeliveable. He goes on to say the his neighbor, who has since moved, had at least three CW's and had orginally introduced him to the brand. Had a big belly laugh that a CW was right next door to me the whole time... :D

I've never seen another CW however I live a small northern town so the range of watches I see out and about is quite small. I think the last nice watch I saw on a stranger is a Tissot Visodate. I have some family/friends that have nice watches but I very rarely see strangers wearing anything noteworthy.

Saw another C11 vintage pvd exactly the same as mine on Friday at the driver's parade at Le Mans. Tapped the guy on the shoulder and pointed to mine, think he was as surprised as me.

Had my first encounter in the wild this weekend which turned in to a double encounter. At a wedding and sat next to a couple and I notice a shiny C7 Bluebird peeking underneath the guys shirt cuff, it's quite a looker in the flesh. After chatting for a while and exchanging what our CW collections are like his wife pipes up and shows us her CW too! Luckily my wife was with me to hear other "real" people say how much they like these watches, should help get teh next purchase in the house....
