    Yeah, if I recall correctly, the two were within $50 of each other, though I can't recall which was more expensive.

    Funny what time can do...

    Since the original 376.0822 dial is so difficult to find (it personally took me almost two years to track one down), I assume that Omega Germany took the easy route and mounted a replacement part destined to a 176.0012. If it is among the old parts that were returned, I would be very curious to see what the original dial looks like...
    Sorry, couldn't post earlier - this is the original dial with crystal and ring...



    Best regards

    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.

    Nice catch!

    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.

    The 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!

    Here's mine. Bought it in June.
    Hands, dial, patina, bracelet, endpieces, everything correct.
