    Searching for a GRAIL! Thoughts on the 2017 JLC Reverso Tribute Moon?

    Hi everyone

    Recently, after a long, long discussion with my wife, I have decided to purchase my grail, the 2017 Rolex SD43. However, after months and months of searching for it at RRP, I finally gave up and decided to forget about it, at least for now, because it is virtually impossible to get one atm! I was fortunate enough to travel a lot for work and have been looking for it across 12 countries in the past few months, but to no avail.

    So, I've since looked elsewhere, particularly JLC and fell in love with the Tribute Moon and thinking of pulling the trigger. I know that the SD43 is a completely different watch, but I'm simply looking for a piece which I can be proud of (considering a huge milestone I successfully achieved early this year). Thoughts? I'm interested to hear your opinions.

    Thank you.

    don't give up on the search, because the SD43 is what you REALLY wanted in the first place

    are you opposed to buying from one of the well known sellers on here? Takuya, Davidsw etc.

    i've seen more than a few on watchrecon

    If it were me, I’d wait on the SD43. But you’re not me. As you mentioned totally different watches. Ones a sporty watch and the other is a dressy watch, which one will get more wear time?

    I know you mentioned that you’ve been searching, but have you decided to put your name down on any waiting lists. Their availability is just gonna go up from here.

    Ultimately, they’re watches. They do 2 things.
    1. They tell the time (both will do this, obviously)
    2. They make you feel good.
    Which of these two will do more of #2 for you?

    EDIT: Dunno if my pictures are working. One looks like a 43mm Submariner with a matte dial and a line of red text.
    The other looks like a reverso with a moon complication.

    Agree with those above, you will always want your true grail the SeaDweller. Find a way to make it happen, even if you have to pay a premium. It will be less than the massive loss you will take on the JLC when you flip it for your true love. If there is a Rolex price rise in the future you are down even more.

    Trust me. Dont settled, wait and get what you really want. I literally went thru 50 watches just to get a Sea Dweller.

    Grail doesn't mean what you think it means.
