That's a pity...
    + I00 - They should replace the photo on Richon's book.

    Great to see your watch back in its original configuration, Andy!

    It's really a pity that so many of these extraordinary chronographs have been defaced during service by the replacement of their original dial and hands. It's always a joy to see one look as it should do.

    Looks great Andy!
    Where were you able to source the handset?
    Also tell us the details of where you found your "grail"

    Thanks chaps, the eagle eyed will be able to see that the second and minute chrono hand are a service set still, although the main min/hour hands are original and in very good condition - I have no idea why the service set was used on this particular one in the first place...
    I have the original second hand (all originals were supplied with the watch that was for sale on another forum) which is about .5mm longer, and the only original hand I don't have is the minute chrono hand - again, normally this would be .5mm longer. The service chrono hands are more similar to the originals than the main hour/minute hands and at some stage I would like to put the original chrono seconds hands back on, its fingery reach onto the 1/5sec chapter ring is lovely.
    I think it's acceptable 'as is' though, and accept that sometimes we can't be too fussy!

    Pascal - nice to hear from you again, hope all is well, here is a trio that I think you'll enjoy - the main variations of the 5100 - the 5100 in the EZM1, the 5012 in the SAAF and finally the 1045 in the Omega -

    That sure is one serious trio you got there! I'm still kicking myself for not getting an EZM1 when I had the opportunity, as this watch has definitely grown on me to the point of getting near the top of my favourite Lemania 5100 chronos list. But the Grail still remains in a class of its own...

    Thanks a lot for sharing.

    Wow! It sure does!

    Not too many people have managed to get one of these, the Italian market limited edition (200) Grail, made in 1990 to get rid of the unsold examples Omega still had in their inventory. It sounds incredible these days, but this watch was a bit of a flop on the market. Too big a watch I suspect, back when a simple Breitling Navitimer was widely seen as a ginormous watch (I know, as I bought mine at that time).

    Feel free to post other pictures of that beauty!
