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.

The grail that I have and will never let go,





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

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.

The Grail I want.


Neil, that's funny because that is probably mine. I've never justified it as it's not a watch I consider to be very versatile with all dress codes and that's normally one of my key requirements. 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:

Many of my wishes came true:

6159-7010


SBDX011


6306-7001 Scubapro


SBBN00C


7C43-700B:


7548-700C Teal Dial:



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.

Seiko SSBS018 Scubapro:

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:



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



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.
