First time ever spotting a CW at a random food court of all places.

Vacationing in Vancouver Canada, and while getting a quick dinner at a food court in between shopping, I spotted a good looking watch on a chap sitting at the next table. Looked familiar, thought it may have been a sub. But then the orange of the bezel shone through.

Turned out to be a first generation C60 with an orange bezel. I believe it’s the watch by spotting the orange bezel, 12 o’clock double baton markers, tear drop hour hand, and round & baton hour markers. Could be a GMT, wasn’t too sure—the bezel looked busier than a standard sub bezel, but couldn’t spot the GMT hand on the dial.

In Canada of all places. Definitely rare, might be the last time I spot one!

I recently took my c65 Diver to Feldmar Watch in Beverly Hills CA. The sales guy there said it was the first he's ever seen in person. He also said he was really surprised by the quality (and thinness) of the watch.

Someone on the 6.10 from waterloo to Guidford standing right there, next to me, sporting a C60 mk 1. First time in ages I've seen another CW in the wild.

Never knew about the brand until I was trying to replace my Torgoen that I lost.

Discovered brand a few years ago, but almost forgot about it. Saw one on the wrist of a stranger on the train the other day. C60 - last edition. Got me looking again!

Spotted 3 today!
At Helmingham Hall car festival I spotted two C7 Rapide models (one green, one black) and an older model, possibly a Malvern?
First time spotting a CW in the wild. Not really surprised by spotting a motorsport model at this type of even though.
