I finally got my grail. The GW-9200MBJ-1JF, the Men in Mat Black Riseman. I "accidentally" bought it by placing a very low maximum bid and winning it. I knew the watch was in a rough state (seller had good pictures) but I didn't expect it to go for one-third of a BNIB one.
It's a nice watch. The module is amazing and very extensive, it shows the full date in the timekeeping mode (with year and day-of-week), you can "flash" the second timezone by holding the top-right button. The six-button layout is very natural, unlike my GDF-100. Almost every mode has current time. And the barometer, altimeter and barograph are nice features to have.
So, I now have my grail, but with a serious case of wabi-sabi. I don't mind having an "imperfect" watch, but I am a bit conflicted as with this being my grail. What should I do?
Strip it, polish it, put it back together and enjoy a watch with experience. Wear it with pride and add some more scuffs!
Restore it to new and wear it occasionally to the office
