First one today......in the dentist waiting room lol

A guy sat next to me had a Trident pro 600 on, I spotted it straight away and complimented him on it.

Have been promoting CW since I got my first Trident. Today my wife, father-in-law, cousins and colleagues are all proud owners. So I see them wearing their CWs in office and during outings.

Can that be counted as sightings??? Ha ha ha..

Similar here, my sister's partner now has 2 C60 Pros after seeing mine.

Along with the purple malvern I gave my mom and the C8 I gave my dad, the only other one I regularly see is when my girlfriend is in town and is wearing the 38mm Trident GMT which she commandeered from my collection. She loves it and wears it every day. I do have a couple coworkers who have expressed interest but neither actually have a CWL.
Family CWLs: C1 Grand Malvern Moonphase, C1 Worldtimer, C5 Malvern Quartz in Purple, C900 Single Pusher 148/250
My CWLs: C3 Mk II Malvern in Green, C3 2017 FLE 31/50, C60 51 Squadron Trident 300

I can safely say that I have never seen another CW in the wild. I get to see plenty of Breitlings, Tag Heur, the occasional Tissot and Rolex, and countless Rolex homage, but not one single CW.

I like to be different to everybody else, if they were more popular, I'd have to find an even more obscure brand :)

After wearing a Rolex Sub every day for fifteen years, I have only been asked about it once, by a guy who was wearing a dive watch, wanting to know what kind it was. I know a couple of watch guys who noticed, but I think that was the limit. Do normal people look at each other's watches? That closely?

Some of us do. I'm one of them! I also try and look at who wears what on TV (yeah, probably a little sad I know!)

Only ever seen one other person wearing one. It's funny how one makes snap judgements but I instantly liked this chap because of his choice of timepiece!

I've never seen another one in the wild. But a couple of guys at work maybe getting one after seeing mine.

Only once, about 3 1/2 years ago. It was coming off a Delta Flight from Atlanta to London Heathrow. Saw the man sitting eating at a café waiting for his flight. He was wearing an older model C5.
