    What a beauty!!!Congratulations K, that's a stunner! A couple of days ago I nearly bid on a beaten up version of this watch... But with my current luck of buying, I let it pass!How is the movement looking/running?Marc

    Oh wow, OH WOW, oh wow!

    Now I am officially jealous!

    And btw I hope you have taken note of that stamp on the watch back and are including it in your dating timeline?

    Re: Grail day today

    Thank you all. Obviously I paid way over the odds, but it is not like this opportunity comes about every day.

    As you might know, I have bought a number of these trying to get one good enough - 4 in the photo below, there are also 2 others not shown. Such as obsessions are. I really must reshoot this photo with all of them.




    I will have to use one of those as the stunt watch - I doubt I can bring myself to wear this one.

    Damn you Kris

    Now you've made me go and buy one. Mind you now you've stopped driving the price up by buying them all, the prices seem a little lower. Hope mine will work, lol.
