One of the mums at my son's school has a red W8 (as does my Mrs)

I spotted it as she was parking her car one day..... then accosted her as we wandered into school with a "very nice watch". You know how it goes, one thing lead to another and she told me her hubby had bought it for her.

Never seen anyone in Oslo wearing one. Not a big surprise perhaps...

Rare to see one in Houston, TX, other than a co worker and a friend who bought one on my advice. And I always compliment them on it when I see them wearing it. One bought C5SKK and the other bought a Trident C60. That's the benefit of owning a CW in Houston. It's going to be unique among what your peers are wearing.

As someone who notices stuff like watches, I can honestly say the only CWL I've ever seen is my own. I'd probably strike up a conversation if I saw another CWL wearer - something that would never happen with any other watch brand

Welcome to the forum! :D Yes, it seems that CW watches are a rare breed out there but then it is still a young company. I wonder how many watches CW sells each year?

Is that 15,000 in a year or since they began trading?

Decent amount for a relatively small company and likely to expand year on year :D

I've seen two in the wild and both on the same RAF station. One was a Silver C7 with black dial. The other was a C3 Malvern chronograph Silver with cream dial. I asked one chap about his, he loved it and it was a gift from his parents.
