Let's see your Grail you've actually Got or one You haven't got:-
 
I've always (when funds were Available) just went ahead and Bought what I wanted plus I was always fortunate like some to have sufficient funds to never really have to justify outlaying the Money on some of the watches I've wanted.
I am for the record a member who has had Grails I've wanted then bought and still own but there is a grail I've still yet to pull the trigger on.

But in the true tradition of Wayne (Wayne's World) would say:-"Oh Yes She will be Mine"


The Grail I want.

And the Grails I wanted and now have.

1 of 50 made and a watch I cherish also as a symbol of a great friendship I have made through this interest.

I used to be into vintage Tissots - particularly the PR516 range. I lusted after this when it came out, but RRP in Aus was too high. I finally found a near new one at a more reasonable price. In the end, I don't love it and it's now on the block [emoji853]

This however, was never on my radar, but I saw it and took a punt on terrible pictures and a dodgy seller and it paid off big time.

I still want it, though! :D It may end up as my retirement watch. Heck, who needs to be able to see the date once retired? :grin:

Some of my wishes have not been fulfilled yet (e.g. 6159-7001, 7548-701A), but there is one watch I would really really love to get my hands on:

Don't know if it's real or fake as I only ever seen it once on YJ.

Didn't know I needed 2 of theses 35 Quartz from 1970.
Some days I toy with the thought of getting one of the reissue with 9F inside.
But then there is other watches in line first I rather buy so it has not happened yet.
Funding is a problem when it comes to grail watches.

I'm not comfortable with the term 'grail'. I've got several favourites though....

Here's a Dainii Seikosha produced 62mas that arrived last week. It's with Duncan (TheWatchBloke) at the moment for a checkover and possible relume:

http://i724.photobucket.com/albums/w...G_1283%201.jpg

Here's another of my favourites... a 1969 6159-7001 after servicing and an NOS bezel. I love it:

http://i724.photobucket.com/albums/w...6/IMG_1188.jpg

And a 1967 6215-7000 which has been serviced and a new insert fitted, and is currently on test with Duncan. I look forward to it coming home in the next week. They don't get much more rare than this:

I've managed to pick up a few models that where/are"grail's" to me over time such as Business Bell, 6309s, 6105s, digitals, various 7548s, Rolly Sub, Omegas etc etc.

But often for me when I finally do get one of my "Grails" which I like and enjoy it is some what of a let down as basically it is just "another watch" an anticlimax :(

For me much of the pleasure is the desire, the need, the excitement and most of all "The Hunt" :)

I'm pretty boring or easily satisfied because I will pick a watch and wear it for weeks, even months happily, I wore my 6105 (Dirty Harry) for two years solid and these days I tend to wear one of my TST's continuously as it is everything I want in a watch.

I agree totally.its a Beast from the side and did you get a glimpse of Dahascos Gold accent version? I've not seen that before but now want it!!! Badly.
As for dress codes I'm sure I could pull that off in a Suit or just a jockstrap and a million dollar smile :-)

LOL! Perfection would be a combination of the two for me. Silver accents are my preference but I prefer the matt shroud of the LE version.

Yes I noticed that.
Non gloss or Matt would not really matter to me wearing the Jockstrap mate!!:grin: I've just found a price of 2900 euros for the gold limited and only 300 being made? Selling my Soul for xmas!!! And some lightly used underwear:whoo

I was always chasing two particular watches - Business bell and a more modern GCLL999 Credor. I got them after months and months of daily searching.. :)

Only one left at this moment is an early 3180

VinceBo 12-04-2016 11:47 AM

Somehow, only a couple of weeks after acquiring a grail watch I've been hungering after for a long time, there suddenly appears te be another grail on the horizon. I used to think that if I only could get a certain watch, I would never need another again. Now I know better LOL.

Past grails I could get my hand on:

Samurai

6306
http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/q..._3-1-van-1.jpg

6105
http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/q...9/6105_5-w.jpg

Pogue

Latest grail acquisition: TST
http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/q...TST/TST_10.jpg

A grail that is just to expensive for me but I might buy when I win the lottery:

44GS 100th anniversary
http://i429.photobucket.com/albums/q...eel-case_3.jpg

APam002 12-04-2016 10:12 PM

My grail, the SBGE001 - bought , stupidly sold and repurchased!
