Had my first sighting last week.
My new boss!! Unreal.
He’d been sitting next to me and after two day’s happened to glance at his wrist and couldn’t believe my eyes.
He was wearing a C60 pro 600 38m.

His wife had bought him it for his birthday in 2017.
His father in law introduced him to CW.

We both laughed as he sent it back twice under warrantee. It had stopped working twice before CW said there was nothing wrong with it and kept it for 9 weeks! In despair told them to forget it and was going to pick it up from CW and take it to Hatton Garden to get fixed. They then had it back to him within a week with a new movement!
Been fine since. Poor, so poor.
His father in law had his back at CW twice too!

And me? My C1 went back 2 weeks ago after only 8 weeks of wear.

Not a good advert eh? :lol:

I think there's more people that you think with a CW - chances are they are back at CW for repair thats why no one is wearing one.

Was that tongue-in-cheek? I don't think things are that bad :shock:

Probably not that bad Patrick in terms of % of watches sold, but if it’s happened to you and the first person you meet who has a CW has had a bad experience along with his father in law too, well it’s just seems too many.
I’m desperately wanting your C65 (handwound or Auto, yet to make mind up) but it really does make you wonder whether to puchase again or just not bother. If all the above was a car then you just wouldn’t even think about buying another one from that maker.
