I’ve never seen a CW ‚in the wild‘.

My C61 has received a few compliments though!

First I've seen in the wild.
Surprisingly saw another CW watch today at another Berkshire golf course - this time it was a Kingfisher with the Orange (? Is that what the colour is called?) dial.
:thumbup: :thumbup:

A rare spot but was it the Tangerine (quartz) or Burnt Orange (Automatic) Kingfisher you saw. :wink:

Burnt Orange Auto seen (again) this morning.

I was just waking up in the recovery room on Thursday the past week after a medical procedure when my attending physician came in to check up on me and he noticed my Oris hat beside my bed.

That started a great 10 minute conversation about watches we both owned and loved and he showed me his CW C65 Super Compressor that he wore that day. He explained to me how the internal bezel worked and also the adjustable bracelet.

I told him about the new Sealander release and later that day emailed him the link from CW on the new watches. His reply was he is leaning towards the C63 Elite in titanium for his next acquisition.


So while this was my first time seeing a CW on someone else he is not my first Doctor who is a watch guy. That distinction belongs to my surgeon who walked into our first meeting wearing a Kermit and when I recognized it and mentioned it, well that started a nice conversation about watches and I remember my wife sitting there in disbelief that someone other than me could be this passionate about watches.

Cheers, Mike.

After 7 yrs of CW ownership, I’ve yet to see one in the wild.

Never happened before and I don’t expect it to ever happen either.

The closest I’ve come is seeing a C5 Mk2 for sale on eBay with the seller being in a city near me. The seller didn’t respond when I messaged them. :/

Matt Tebbut was wearing a bronze C60 on a blue hybrid strap on the telly at the weekend. Does that count?

I haven't seen one on the wild, and I have work it into a fairly large multibrand AD who also commented he hadn't seen one before.

Ahhh, but what if that stepping seconds hand turned out to be a JLC True Second and you've missed the change to take a closer look
Or a nice quartz Grand Seiko.

Never seen on in the wild, but I know there are a few folks on the Rolex forums with C.Wards
