    I know they're appreciating in value, but this might be a bit too optimistic, even for a nice-looking specimen:

    As far as I can tell, these are not appreciating in value. More than a decade ago, the peak price I saw was $14K. To put this into perspective, at the time, it was easy to get pristine 145.012 and 105.012 Speedmasters with original bands for under $3K. From this period of time, all sorts of other Omegas have seen similar increases in value (eg. 166.024, 165.024, 105.003, 2998-X) to the flown Speedmasters. Everything is relative and clean original more common 105.012 and 145.012 Speedmasters run in the low teens, with this in mind at best, I'd say the "Grail" has held its value and at worst has lost value.


    Why has the "Grail" failed to increase in value? In my opinion it is partly due to the price bubble that happens when any watch that is truly rare becomes highly sought after as it was when Chuck Maddox was alive. It is also due to the lack of an active market which happens when rare watches find homes with collectors who have no interest in selling.


    As an owner of a number of different Speedmasters, and in particular a 105.012 and a 376.0822, I'll say that I believe a "Grail" at $12.5K is bargain in today's market. I brought a number of Speedmasters to a local Red Bar gathering last year. While everyone appreciated the 105.012, the universal comment about the 376.0822 was "wow, never seen one of those in the flesh". In the context of the values of other collectible Omega sport watches, the "Grail" is under appreciated in my opinion.

    the 376.0822 aren't in my wheelhouse, but just that 1450 bracelet with the endlinks is worth a pretty penny.

    I was just clued in to the existence of this website. omegaholygrail.com

    I sent off a "thank you" email to the creator - haven't heard back yet.

    I suspect all of us on this thread would enjoy the information there.

    Re: Show me your 376.0822 Speedmaster!

    Thanks, EZ; that's a great informational site. I learned that mine has the original B2 bezel and the original Type 1 dial. Coincidentally, I recently procured this NOS replacement (Type 2) dial, although hardly for the 38.15 price on the package. The seller sent me a photo showing the lume brightly charged. Any thoughts as to why Pascal's NOS dial lume shows full patina whereas this one is still white? I don't know that I'll necessarily install it because the patina has grown on me, but I grabbed the dial just in case because I know how rarely they show up for sale. I also bought a replacement crystal with the chapter ring the first time I saw one for sale for the same reason. Thanks again to SteveW62 for the modification idea.

    38.15 is not the price, it´s the production date: 38th week of 2015. It´s an Omega service dial with Luminova.
