Last weekend when I was flying from Heathrow to Dubai, I saw a chap wearing a C9 Jumping Hour.

Standing at the baggage reclaim at Sal airport on Monday (Cape Verde), chatted to the guy next to me about our mutual baggage reclaim horror stories and noticed he was wearing a Black faced Trident! Didn't say anything as we were both distracted by the lack of suitcases (all fine in the end, of course).

How long have you owned the Speedmaster? If it's an older one, it would be great to see some pictures in other brands.

Saw my dentist again today - he was wearing the same C60 white dial 300 I saw him wearing last time. But this time I mentioned it to him and showed him my C60 Vintage that I wore in preparation, indicating that we were both CWL enthusiasts. He looked at me as though I was the biggest weirdo he'd ever seen and was not in the least bit interested, ushering me out of the room before I said anything else overly-nerdy! :oops:

I just don't understand these strange people who don't obsess about watches. :lol:

How odd! :)

My dentist also owns a white faced Trident 300 38mm. Unlike your dentist, she's rather keen on it.

Oh, yes. My dentist is my daughter... :lol:

He clearly has no idea or interest in watches and probably took it in part payment for a filling!

So not strictly a sighting of a CW in the wild.....

As I finished up work the other day at London City Airport, I saw one of the drivers waiting for his pickup. None other than a Christopher Ward, I wonder if it was The Christopher Ward?

Saw a white face black bezel C60 on a chap in a chip shop in walton on the naze this weekend.

Were both too preoccupied with children to have any discussion.

On the train to Birmingham this morning I saw a chap wearing a C3 Malvern Chrono mk 2. He was wearing it on a fairly substantial gold bracelet, not sure how well that went with the silver case/cream face but it was good seeing another one in the wild.

But would you though...go up to a stranger on a crowded train ask him about his watch and bracelet choice! :o
