Was it Ferg? He’s off to Goodwood, and I think he brought a C60 Chrono! :lol:

EDITED TO ADD: I’m now seeing the other comments. Was it Ferg then? That’s awesome!
The guy I met today had a beard.

There’s not many ‘stranger’ than this chap of late. Anyone of our knowledgeable brethren know what this watch is?

I see that CW are advertising on the back page of Private Eye these days. I’ll be keeping my ‘eye’ on Ian Hislop in future.

They have been advertising in "Private Eye" for several years now, so I wouldn't hold your breath.

Met a guy in Keswick on the 30th Sept in a cafe wearing an Orange Trident, much talk about watches whilst the better halves rolled their eyes

Having worn CWs for 17 yrs now, was delighted to spot a Super Compressor on the arm of a chap shopping for glasses in SpecSavers UK.

He was a bit taken back and wary of me when I first approached him and complimented his choice of watch. Once he knew that I knew my CWs he was very welcoming then.

Sod's law - I didn't have a CW on that day to swap CW stories.

They are out there, but I was lucky as he was stretching his arm out to select glasses!

No doubt we will get to see more as sales volumes increase. Judging by ebay, there are plenty out there!

Does your father-in-law count as a stranger?

Oh and the fact that I bought him his first CW watch for his birthday, probably discounts him.

Anyway, he will be v pleased on his upcoming birthday, as I have wrapped him up a nice C20 auto which I acquired from ebay recently. I must admit to swapping out the SS strap for my C20FLE though, bit at least we're both winners👍😁

On the internet yes. In person, no never yet. But so what. I've never happen-chanced upon a person wearing a Patek either.

Spotted a lovely PP on the arm of a chap I had meeting with through work. He was delighted to have somebody appreciate his choice of watch, although knowing his character, I think it was more about advertising his wealth, rather than a true horologist. Still, at least it wasn't the usual 'must have' watch of the day on his arm, trying to bolster his hubris!
