I have however been in the company of strange men who were wearing Christopher Ward watches.

Quality Scooter, I'm going to say that counts!

I am regularly in Lichfield.

Next time I am there, I shall wear a CW on each wrist, and wave my arms in the air for the duration of my visit.

Keep an eye out for me.

On another note.

I did see myself in the mirror the other morning after a heavy night out with much lubrication.

I was wearing a CW, and I certainly didn't recognise the neanderthal stranger that was staring back at me.

Does this count?

This certainly counts as a very silly tending to extremely silly thread.

I'm in!

I can fully attest that I have never seen a stranger wearing a CW whatever the obtuse criteria so far postulated.

Ah, but what do you do if you see a puffin wearing a CW?

Is there a thread for that, and if not, why not?

I am not sure why this thread is started as there is similar one that has been active for over 7 years.

How often do you see strangers wearing a CW?

If you look at many of the responses to the thread you quoted, I think it’s fairly obvious why the thread was started...... :lol:
