    Re: Grail definition??

    Wow, talk about rising from the depths. This is an old thread and my ideas have changed a bit since, but I have obtained one that fits my definition. I finally got a navitimer (Limited edition WITH manufactue movement) and I don't see anything I could afford that could replace it any time soon.

    Re: Grail definition??

    There was a thread over on TRF about this a few weeks ago, and the original poster was positing that there are grails and then there are GRAILS.
    A grail is a watch that you really want that would take a considerable amount of time to acquire, either because of the duration of savings involved or the rarity of the watch.

    A GRAIL is the one that would require an enormous change in finances (like winning the lottery) or unbelievable luck in the used/vintage market to obtain.

    The man who buys a particular watch to feel smarter or better than other people and the man who avoids a particular watch to feel smarter or better than other people are brothers.
