Not the best set of parameters to keep a watch collection going. And that's why I've made myself pretty scarce on the forum: too many temptations!

    The crown jewels (including the Grail) are still here though, and I fully intend to keep the core my Lemania 5100 collection intact. Once I find a job, things will hopefully get back to normal...
    Wow. I'm so sorry to hear this Pascal. It's bad all over. I'm lucky to have a Goverment job driving the bus. You don't downsize buses.

    Your example looks cosmetically perfect. It seems like you just got it new from an AD!

    As a matter of fact, I do believe this watch is very comfortable to wear on a daily basis, just like a Speedy Pro can be. And despite the additional info on the dial, it's just as legible. But I also know that its extreme rarity is making some owners nervous, which is a pity. Obviously, I'm one of these people who believe that most watches are better off being on a wrist rather than in a vault. Mine is always part of my rotation.

    So my advice is that you should definitely try wearing it for an extended period of time before making up your mind whether to sell it or not. You're among the lucky few to have managed to acquire this marvellous chronograph, so if you ever let it go, the chances of sourcing another one later are pretty limited.

    I agree 110%. Normally i wear all my watches on a rotation except the Grails but you have convinced me. So during my lunch break i went to the bank and pulled the Grail out of the safety deposit box as a matter of fact i am wearing it right now . lets see how we get along. If not i will sell her and put the money towards a Rolex - Sub, muhahaha.

    Hi, I just acquired the grail but the watch is still with my friend in FL so I need to wait till April to lay my hands on it :( BTW I notice that minute hand has been replace to 1045-style hand. Is it possible to source the original one? I'm not sure if moonwatch hands can do since it looks very similar. Thanks.

    Congratulations on getting yourself a Grail!

    Sadly, the original hands (specific to the Grail) are near impossible to source, and that's why Omega has taken the unfortunate habit of replacing them by the stubbier ones found on other cal. 1045 chronographs. It's the same problem with the dials, as I see more and more example with the wrong type that Omega has been using as a replacement.

    As for using Moonwatch hands, you can forget about it. Hands made for cal. 861/186X will not fit a cal. 1045 watch.

    I wished Omega realized that with this watch they have a classic that deserves the to have spare parts made according to the original specs...

    Just have the watch in hand and found that the minute hand issue I mentioned earlier is a mis-understanding actually. So all parts are original as far as I know, included the 1450 bracelet. It's stunning!!
