    Re: Voila! Le Grail de Steve

    I know this is a question being asked by thousands who have looked at this threat with equal parts of jaw dropping admiration and hulk green envy. But I have to ask. What tips do you experts have for people like us who have been searching for this, the most perfect Speedmaster Professional. Where to look. How to find one?

    Thank you so much for this. This really is a very important post for some of us looking around for one. Reading this I now realise how many wrong ones have been sold. And with no parts to correct them it really would be a big mistake for anal ones like me. Thanks again.

    You don’t have to worry about the fakers as they seem to have left this one alone so far. Estimates are that only 1000 were made and the case design is quite different to the normal Speedmaster, thicker and with the pushers enclosed.
    I am on my second watch now and having recently sold the first one I bought.

    The main culprits for less than perfect versions seems to be Omega themselves.

    Examples that have been through Bienne, come back with alternative dial, hands, and bezel. Some of these changes are easy to spot other are not, so I thought I would list a few things I have noticed in my hunt for the Grail in case others may be looking for one.
    Here are the differences

    The Bienne – replacement dial
    Does not have the number 10,
    The minute markers are a smaller diameter and so leave a gap near the chapter ring markers.
    The luminous hour markers do not extent out as far as the chapter ring.
    The day and date window is not enclosed – and is open to the right of the date.
    The 24 hour dial has a shaded area from 6 to 18
    The word OMEGA has a different font - and
    The S in Speedmaster is very different.

    The Bienne replacement hands
    The hour hand is fatter
    Both hands are not so sharp/pointed at the ends
    On both hands the lume does not extend for the full length on the hand
    The chronograph second hand does not have a Diamond lume section.

    The replacement Bezel
    It has an accent over the E, not present on the original
    The 70 marker has a low dot, whereas the original has a dot to the right of the 70

    Bracelet and end pieces

    The original bracelet is the famous 1450 and ends are numbered 809
    whereas the newer replacements ends are numbered 808
    I have seen some Grails with different replacement bracelets, including the standard 1171 speedy bracelet.

    So all in all quite a few differences – I appreciate that parts are no longer available, however you would have thought that Omega could try harder to make replacements that keep the look of the watch the same.
    Good luck finding one of these, if you do in my opinion it is well worth the search.
    To anyone who has a Bienne refurbished watch – my advice is to keep the old parts safe..

    Cheers

    Mark

    The Bienne Re-furb



    My recent watch - the Chrono second counter has a broken end, but apart from that it is all original.




    The one I sold recently


    And before the day wheel was changed

    Here's a few pics of mine. It was purchased through tz-uk forum in the UK and from a member that's already posted pics of it in this thread.
    So same watch, but new owner and fresh pics. It's awesome and due to it's rarity, it's going nowhere!

    A very nice "Liberace Grail" example!

    Made exclusively for the Italian market in the wake of the lack success of the regular 376.0822 (probably due to its size, viewed as too large at the time; a year later, Omega came up with the "reduced"), this watch was limited to 200 examples. Nowadays, they are less desirable than the plain version, but personally I certainly wouldn't mind acquiring one at some point.

    A bit flamboyant, but still a great chronograph!
