    Your Unattainable "Grail"...

    Everyone of us has ONE watch we lust over above every other watch.

    It makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside... yet we know deep inside, we can never purchase/source it, we can only own it in our dreams.

    Like a soul-mate you met at the train station going to the opposite direction, or your first love at high school leaving the country.

    This is how I feel when I look at the Credor Eichi:

    For years, I have been searching for that "perfect watch". The watch that could represent all of my life's achievements, failures, and success.
    This watch WAS supposed to be the culmination of my love for watches, and my love for beauty.

    But alas, it seems it was never meant for me:
    Watches by SJX: The last Seiko Credor Eichi is sold


    Nevertheless, life goes on, and I hope the Montblanc Villerets and ALSs can fill that void in my heart.

    I would put my three unattainable grails at:

    Breitling Navitimer
    Rolex Sub C
    Panerai PAM 305

    Not very imaginative I know, but those are the ones I covet and will never have.

    The ALS 1815 Rattrapante Perpetual.

    I like to think that I may be able to one day spend into the mid 5 figures for a watch, say upon my retirement, if I save properly. However, at 220,000+ USD this bad boy is firmly out of my reach forever. Even if I won the lottery for 25MM USD, That is a full percent of the pre-tax winnings on ONE watch. My wife wouldn't have it, and I don't blame her.

    Now if I won the lottery twice...

    I'm the same way, I make decent money, I could buy any of my grail watches I listed above right now if I really wanted to, but the wife would likely divorce me and I quite like her.

    My grail watches are pretty low according to most folks but like you even if I were to win the lottery I have my own internal limit as to what I would ever pay for a watch.
