I think I saw a BA pilot wearing a C60 in the staff canteen the other week, couldn't tell exactly and didn't want to ask as they can be a funny lot, some are very approachable and others a bit stand offish.

I hope the fact that (s)he was a pilot wearing a dive watch didn't represent his/her flying skills!!

Have never seen one on the wrist of anyone else except of forum wrist shots. I see more fashion watches worn these days rather than a dress watch or even a diver.

Had a new guy join me on the golf course this morning for the Sunday comp and he was wearing the merc version of the c11. Got chatting and it turns out he also has a c70 chronometer and a c80 sector. Nice chap too!

The image of a sector and plus fours might actually make my head explode! :D

In my 3 years of being familiar with the brand I have only ever seen one CWL watch on another wrist (in London) .. until today. :) Stopping off at Taunton Deane Services on the M5 I spied a C20 Lido (original logo) in the fast food queue. A quick introduction and chat ensued whereby the owner (later identified as Andrew) and I engaged in watch chatter for a few mins waiting for our calories to be cooked and served. Seems Andrew is also a big fan (as is his daughter) and after my recommending this forum he hopes to join us all on here soon :-)

So just been chatting to a chap in John Lewis in Reading who was wearing a C6 on a NATO strap.

It was the strap that caught my eye and I asked him what watch he was wearing and he very keenly took it off and started to explain what it was.

Sadly today I'm not wearing a CW, at the moment, but we chatted about watches and bread makers (he had a faulty bread maker he was exchanging)

In Birmingham (AL) one other person wears a CW and he's the one who made me discover the brand. Funny thing he was selling me another watch with the CW on! Been enjoying CW since.

A customer turned up yesterday sporting a lovely C40 Speedhawk. He was surprised to hear me comment on it but even more impressed when I showed him my C60. He'd never seen one in the wild.

Another customer recently recognised my C60. The brand knowledge and recognition is definitely growing.

On a slightly separate subject, I was in a rolex AD the other day and the sales person inspected the C60 while it was on the table and was extremely complimentary about the quality for the price

So far I have not yet seen anyone wearing a CW however I quite like that and I have been asked about my C9 Harrison by complete strangers.

I've never seen a Christopher Ward in the wild other than mine. I see quite a few omegas and tons of Tags though.
