    Thumbs Up Re: Show me your 376.0822 Speedmaster!

    Lovely, and all original indeed! Hands are the right ones, and the luminous markers on the original dial are in good shape with just the right amount of patina on them.

    Great catch!

    Thanks Pascal for bumping this thread back up so that a few new owners can share their wonderful watches, (and for sharing your 'reference' knowledge throughout!).

    I can't believe the condition of the last few - truly rare and desirable examples of a great watch.

    Thanks for sharing - hopefully one day I'll be lucky enough to find a nice one and be able to share it between such an appreciative crowd!

    Cheers,
    Andy

    Wow! That is a great picture!

    I wish mine looked this good, though it will eventually once I sort out the finances to have it worked on. Incidentally, I've been wearing mine over the last week after a month wearing my Speedy Pro, and the Grail still has one hell of a presence. It's really a wonder that this model didn't meet with more success back in the late 1980s. They sure don't look dated now!

    A nice one went at a German auction amidst a myriad of other watches for about Eu3400, add 22% commission of course, only last week. Shame that I was strapped, but hey-ho, such is life.

    A friend of mine (I was in the army at the time) bought one in '88 (I've asked him about it and he's a bit vague but said the Speedmaster he bought worked 'like a stopwatch' rather than a normal chrono) and while getting changed in a washroom in Orly airport he left it on the washstand and forgot it when he went to get a pint....he went back later but it had gone...

    Wow! €3400 for this watch, even accounting the auctioneer's commission, is a bit of a bargain these days! Grails are pretty scarce at less than €4500, and the ones that go at these prices often have issues such as the original bracelet missing or a wrong dial...

    I still remember a few years ago being pointed to a recently ended auction on eBay. A very nice 376.0822 has sold for about €1700 because the listing was so badly written that it had gone under almost everyone's radar! Someone got very lucky though...

    Re: Show me your 376.0822 Speedmaster!

    The dial on this dummy (this watch has no movement, as indicated by the position of the hand on the 24 hour subdial, which should indicate 10:00 PM and not 12:00 PM) is probably a prototype. Its layout is correct, but the luminous marker at 3 seems to be missing, and so does the "10" next to the luminous marker at 2. But what shocks me most on this watch is not the slightly weird dial but the incorrect hands: these are the ones used on the other calibre 1045 watches, as they are a bit chubbier and shorter than the Grail's originals, and the chrono's second hand should have a luminous diamond.

    This picture is of the example that is on display at the Omega Museum and I know for a fact, through correspondence with Marco Richon himself, that some of the watches exhibited are not complete and are just meant to look like the real deal. What bothers me is that this seems to extend to such an authoritative book as Mr Richon's one, basically allowing Omega to do whatever with the aesthetics of this rare chronograph during service. That's a pity...
