Aaah, here we do have the real deal. This is more like it!
Two sure ways to tell a real Grail dial from one destined to another 1045 Omega is the presence of a small luminous marker at 3 next to the day-date windows, and the "10" between the luminous marker at 2 and the Omega logo.
Thomas, have you ever thought about getting this original dial cleaned up and relumed? Your watch would look even better with its true face...
It appears that Thomas' Grail is not the only one to have received an incorrect replacement dial from Omega.
Have a look at this listing from Antiquorum's Omegamania auction!
Time to shake the cobwebs off this thread and see if we have any new owners around.
I know of at least one, but there might be other lurkers out there...
It may be missing its chapter ring, but its dial is PERFECT.
While parts for this beauty are hard to come by, many can still be found from several sources. It's a pity the dial is not among them...
It took me about 2 years to find this one!
The markers show a bit of aging, which I quite like actually, but the effect is slightly enhanced by the wrapping.
Stop showboating ALBThe example I have is PERFECT in every way (not just the dial... I haven't seen a cleaner (MINT) example anywhere), hence my desire to Bienne it... it's more than worth to do it right by factory specs/docs... the whole thing!
When it returns from Bienne I'll take a boat load of high res pics with my 3 Ploprofs 166077s (as Icons) and my new DSSD!
Maybe throw in the 1516, 1511 and the 1510 too... then again, maybe not!

Hands, dial, patina, bracelet, endpieces, everything correct.
