C60 Mk 2.5 black dial with a red bezel at WindUp NYC today. This was not on a CW team member but a member of the public.

Popped round to a small deli close to my house this afternoon for some eggs. I normally don't do much food shopping and haven't been in this deli before.

The guy who served me had a rather nice black dialled diver on a bracelet that caught my eye. Without trying to be too weird and stare, the handset did look quite Trident mk3-esque. When he handed me my change, the twin flags logo was clear on the bracelet clasp, it was indeed a 42mm mk3 Trident.

He was chatting to another chap so I didn't mention the watch.

I saw my first on Saturday - but not on a stranger.

I was was chatting to one of my teammates after a hockey match on Saturday, and the watch he was wearing caught my eye - a brand new Mk3 Trident. Turns out it was a 50th birthday present from his wife - apparently it was to replace a Breitling given to him on his 40th by his ex....

When I mentioned it, he was shocked I noticed - but even more shocked when I told him how many of their watches I had...

Never heard of them till a friend tipped me off. Here in US you don’t see them at all.

Never seen a CW a stranger wearing a CW. However when my interest in CW started and after months of obsessing and paying attention to what friends, colleagues, clients and strangers were wearing. I discovered a colleague sitting opposite me had been wearing a CW for a few years.

A couple of years ago I saw a chap wearing a white C60 in a bar/burger joint in downtown Atlanta. He seemed genuinely delighted that some random Brit had bumped into him and complemented him on his choice of wristwear.

had a rather pleasant gentleman in work yesterday sporting a Grand Malvern PR, that then led to a 20 -30 min conversation about CW and watches as a whole :)
