Generally wondering what other serviceable parts would be worth finding before the well starts to dry up, with omega stopping distribution next year.
    I saw an OEM crystal with the chapter ring attached on ebay last year and snapped it up. The same seller has since listed a few more. Still hoping to find a NOS dial even though the old lume is still surprisingly better than I thought originally. I (barely) use a crap phone but I gotta remember to have my wife take a good picture of my setup because I think the black Fortis day & date wheels look infinitely better than the white Omega wheels.

    For some reason, I can't copy/paste a quote to my last post.

    I'm guessing around $7K. The last one I saw up for auction got pulled by the seller with about a day left at $5,500 because he was afraid it wasn't going to go much higher, but I think there would have been a bidding war if he'd have left it up.

    That's the one that was just listed on ebay a few weeks ago by timelimit, right?
    Here's the picture that I never got around to taking before. The day & date wheels have been changed to white-on-black Fortis wheels.

    Beautiful example of the Grail, but I'm not a fan of the black day/date wheels.

    Understood. It does take away from the original vintage look that purists prefer. I've kept the original German wheels (obviously) in case I ever decide to part with the watch and I've procured a NOS set in both English and French as well. It always just bothered me that the original white wheels always seem mismatched in that the date wheel stays so much brighter white than the yellowish day wheel because the former receives less than 25% of the light exposure of the latter over the lifetime of the watch.

    Chuck knew his speedmasters, but "Grail" is passed around far too much now....it's not a moon watch. For me.... Case closed.

    Well, for folks that enjoy pure handwound pieces without the benefits of an automatic movement and date feature, going pre-moon is the way to go. Nobody is doubting that.

    However, for those who prefer a day/date feature with the legendary robustness of the 5100 movement while retaining the original moonwatch case, the 376.0822 might be an option to consider.
