Wrist Scan for Friday 6th of March is Open!! Theme "Defining Grail Watch"

Mar 06, 2020,05:21 AM
 

Hello dear Friends!  Wrist Scabn is open and you may post in this same thread!


As announced last Wednesday I will have the pleasure of hosting this week end edition and I am inviting our members to participate sharing with us their Grail Watches.

We are specially interested to view your Grail Watches already in your collection, regardless its comercial value. The important matter is the significance of a Grail for its owner beyond a market price.


Additionally I thought  it would be very interesting to know your points of view regarding what means "Grail Watch" answering a few questions:

- A Grail Watch is always a timepice with a high tag price or it can be a rare piece we covet but we can´t find though the price is low?

- Does exist only one real "Grail Watch" in our collecting career... or when we finally reach it automatically our mind sets another Grail to hunt?

- Can we have more than one "Grail Watch" in our wish list or this category should be reserved to only one piece?

-  Does a Grail Watch loose this status once we are lucky enough to own it?

- Are true Grails only those pieces that we absolutely know are beyond our reach due to our economic/financial posibilities or those pieces so rare that are almost impossible to be found?


As I told in my provious announcement, in my personal case my Grail for years had been the 5110 Patek WT, a dream I could fullfil a few years ago through a lucky event.

Last year I was thrilled when I got another Grail: I had dreamed for years with the 1969 full gold Speedmaster and the new Omega offering of a new versión of that watch made that dream come true: The Speedmaster Moonshine.


Presently I keep several other "Grail Watches" in my wish list ... though I know some of them I will never be able to own. For example: a Patek Perpetual calendar chronograph with salmon dial and platinum case ( Their  reference 5270P would do nicely!) .   Dreams are free of charge... and who knows... sometimes they come true!


So the challenge for this week end is to share with us shots of "Grail Watch" (or Grail Watches) you own and also share with us your thoughts about what means these magical words for you.
Your own definition of "Grail Watch"!

Have a lovely week end and an enjoyable participation in our WS!!
Cheers! Abel.

As usual, there are three categories:

Best Wrist Shot
Best Static shot
Best Watch of the Week (to be judged among the watches submitted to this edition)

Participants may submit photographs for any of these categories or for all of them.

Grail pair of vintage dress waches

Life is funny! As a collector of vintage jumbo manual-wind time-only (JMWTO) watches, with jumbo being defined as 36mm and up,it's often harder to find these. Especially for vintage VC and PP. Jumbo VC's are a bit more common than jumbo PP's, but they're ...  

Thank you so much dear NT931 for sharing these two Grails!! I´m sure you´ll get the one you have in your soul to complete the trilogy!

 
 By: Subexplorer : March 6th, 2020-05:36
These are two marvellous pieces which I can feel makes you very happy! Keep enjoying and loving them and good luck with your hunting for your third Grail!! Hagwe! Abel

The Grail for me...

 
 By: Cpt Scarlet : March 6th, 2020-06:07
is a journey and not a destination. This is something that I have learnt along the way. So many “stops” on this journey and these are just a few to share with you this weekend. Great theme Abel. ...  

That´s a great definition of Grail Watch my dear Captain! "A Journey not a Destination" can answer my opening questions!

Some Lovely Grails you share! Didn´t know there was a 6238 Pre Daytona in you collection! That´s a most charming timepiece I love so much! I just wonder what could came next in your list! But these are things that can make for an interesting chat next tim... 

The journey is longer than I originally expected

"No. Thank you. I have got an alarm watch. It is an automatik." I cannot forget that scene! I was laughing in silence because that woman would most probably know nothing or not much about watches. I certainly knew what you were meaning 😀. Top pieces!!! ...

most of them are THE absolute grail (that couldn't be obtained) for me you definitely a lucky collector, my friend and i'm lucky enough to join this forum & be able to look at your pictures of those grail watches. cheers

Two beautiful Grails Tyo! The Breguet La Tradition is in my Grails wish book too. I was very near to catch one a couple of years ago, but finaly I couldn´t make it. A superb timepiece...

Grails

 
 By: Gelato Monster : March 6th, 2020-17:23
IMHO every piece I get is a grail. I never knew whether I can get it or not. (due to rarity or specific limited number or other reason). Most of all due to limited budget, I have to always ask myself, is it another true love or just passion and desire.

Good answer Gelato Monster! These are questions we collectors do ourselves some times: which? where? when? Budget allow? ...

 
 By: Subexplorer : March 6th, 2020-17:55
While love, passion and desire are part of our game... Always! May be you can share some of your Grails with us? Hagwe! Abel

In my case

There is thin line differentiating passion and stupidly in love 🤣🤣

Thanks Abel for a nice and thought-provoking theme this week! :-) Since "grail" has already been defined extensively (and in various interesting ways) by other friends in this thread...

 
 By: FabR : March 7th, 2020-14:11
..Let me also add my personal and very theoretical definition... My "grail" must: 1) Be created by my favorite watch brand; 2) Carry an iconic, 40+ year-old movement on one side and a masterpiece on the dial, authored by the most talented contemporary art...  

A breathtaking beauty indeed. A fabulous timepiece. May be next time you can connect with it or let it go forever. It is something strange...

I can well imagine that dear Fab. Truth is that the experience of examining a watch in the metal is supreme. Much more in the case of these...

 
 By: Subexplorer : March 7th, 2020-18:55
... So important pieces which we consider Grails. This has been my own experience and it can be an exhilarating feeling every time we have in our hands and wrists the pieces we have been lusting through magazines, books, or internet pictures. Best, Abel

The 6102P is great, but I much prefer yours regardless

I was completely in awe from both the dial design and technical movement design perspectives when Zeitwerk was first released in 2009. Its dial design is deceivingly simple yet quite complicated. It became my grail instantly. It continued to wow me year a...

Thank you so much Alex for sharing your beautiful Grail (no need to tell you how much I love this watch) and also for telling us about your own definition of "Grail". I agree with...
