Must admit a real live person no. My C7 was once mistaken for a Tag Carrera, in of all places a Tag shop, by the staff. When I showed them the watch, and price, they nearly fainted !

Today is the first time I've seen one out in the wild.

Very briefly compared C60 notes with a GMT owner in the sandwich shop up the road from my office.

He must have also known it was Trident Tuesday - I duly obliged with my Trident SH21.

Seems we both bought them in the same sale in late 2016.....

Needless to say, the rest of the shop looked at us as though we had two heads!!!!

Working in London I'm constantly on the lookout for people wearing CWs and in the few months of observation I've never had a confirmed sighting.

Arrived in the Dordogne, France yesterday and visited the mini supermarket in the tiny town of Salignac and out walks a chap wearing a Hornet...

I used to wear my C60 Kingfisher to work every day (it's been in storage for a while and I'm currently watchless...). Bumped into a colleague this morning and noticed he was wearing a C60 Trident Chrono with black dial. It looks a lovely watch. I mentioned it and he said he'd looked up CW after seeing my Yellow Kingfisher and bought it earlier in the year (while I was away). 8)

I've never actually met anyone who owns one, from time to time I have to explain what my watch is but then again I like having something that needs a little explanation.

I recently visited the USA on a business trip to our parent company that's based near Pittsburgh. During a meeting with some guys I was eyeing up the watch from across the table worn by one of the guys giving a presentation. It turned out he was only bloody wearing a C60 Trident pro 600 (the same watch I was wearing). I couldn't believe it, I've never even spoken to someone else that knows of CW watches but when I travel half way across the word I find someone who does.

Amazing! Presumably you talked about it with him?
