I’ve never seen a CW ‚in the wild‘.

My C61 has received a few compliments though!

42mm Blue & Orange C60 Trident GMT 600 spotted and confirmed on a Berkshire golf course this morning.
First I've seen in the wild.
Surprisingly saw another CW watch today at another Berkshire golf course - this time it was a Kingfisher with the Orange (? Is that what the colour is called?) dial.
:thumbup: :thumbup:

A rare spot but was it the Tangerine (quartz) or Burnt Orange (Automatic) Kingfisher you saw. :wink:

Guy
Burnt Orange Auto seen (again) this morning.

I was just waking up in the recovery room on Thursday the past week after a medical procedure when my attending physician came in to check up on me and he noticed my Oris hat beside my bed.

That started a great 10 minute conversation about watches we both owned and loved and he showed me his CW C65 Super Compressor that he wore that day. He explained to me how the internal bezel worked and also the adjustable bracelet.

I told him about the new Sealander release and later that day emailed him the link from CW on the new watches. His reply was he is leaning towards the C63 Elite in titanium for his next acquisition.


So while this was my first time seeing a CW on someone else he is not my first Doctor who is a watch guy. That distinction belongs to my surgeon who walked into our first meeting wearing a Kermit and when I recognized it and mentioned it, well that started a nice conversation about watches and I remember my wife sitting there in disbelief that someone other than me could be this passionate about watches.

Cheers, Mike.

After 7 yrs of CW ownership, I’ve yet to see one in the wild.

Never happened before and I don’t expect it to ever happen either.
