Never yet seen anybody wearing one although a friend who works at VW headquarters says some guys there have them. Maybe not as many up north in Yorkshire buy them.

To be fair, the only notable watches I ever see in the "wild" are omega PO, AT and subs.

I did once see a guy wearing an SKX on a nato strap...being British I was too shy to ask about it but clearly he was friend material.

Now, I (used to) sit in an office with 3 apple watch wearers...

Dive C60 Trident 600 pro titanium mk2 V1 (the illegible one)

Bought my first 2 and did not see any around Norfolk for months. Now to date have seen 5 including my local landlord who looked at mine and went for it.

I don't see many watches in general. If someone is wearing one, seems to always be a fitness/smart watch of some sort.

Having said that, I did, in fact, just purchase a CW 65 Trident auto(black dial) from a fellow that lives in New Braunfels, Tx..now this is about an hours drive away from me(as the crow flies!!)..so, while I've never run into him, he and his wrist wear are just down the road..btw, I should be receiving it by Friday!!.. :lol:

C7 rosso corsa (original one) at a petrol station in Kent few months ago. Noticed it purely as i was looking for a red dial watch and spotted one on the wrist of the guy at the next pump.
Subsequently purchased one myself via a well known auction site but the whole C7 mkI/mkII doesn't work for me so its on the disposal list.

After 5 months of working from home during lockdown and barely leaving my village during that time, can we change this thread to be just "How often do you see strangers?" ? :shock:

Normally once a year at the O2 in Glasgow. This year is cancelled as CV19 took its toll on them with the death of Dave Greenfield (keyboards) so rearranged for next April.

Looking at the news headlines this morning and happened to spot what looks like a C60 on the student that got fined £10k for holding a house party in Nottingham. What do you think?
