    One Grail Down, Time to Assign Another

    So some of you may know that I have been after this watch for quite some time. Being that it was a limited edition released in 2005 I really didn't think I would ever get one.

    Late last year I thought I had one, only to dicover at the last moment that it a different LE, not the one I was after.

    Well, low & behold, after a particularly profitable poker tournament I looked around a few forums & found what I was looking for.

    Fed-ex delivered it this morning.

    Oris Limited Edition 1945 Flight Timer.

    Now that is an awesome display box (and watch!). Definitely more than worthy of the grail terminology - and it's certainly been elusive enough for you.

    Any idea's as to what's next on the list?

    Seiko
    "Save the Ocean" Turtle; Tudor Black Bay; DOXA 1000T Project Aware (75/92); Seiko SKX013; Garmin Descent; Tissot PRS200

    oh, I don't know just yet.


    I have been really liking the Longines Lindbergh or the Trans-Atlantic Chronograph.


    But who knows when the funds will swell to that realm.

    The only thing is that the lining of the box is a little beat up (as you can see in the pics). Maybe I'll re-upolster it at a later date.

    Congratulations on your grail! Lovely limited edition piece, and the presentation box and accessories only make it better. Looks like we both got what we wanted today.
