    I was lucky enough to acquire this yesterday and I'm so happy!
    It's a grail and I'm over the moon with it, just want to share with some fellow WIS.

    Thanks y'all! I am really, really digging it, spent way too long last night with my loupe and examining the dial and playing w the light bouncing off the tri-colored sub registers :D:D

    Patience, luck and a friend that knew I was dying for it. He went big on a PP recently so decided it was up for grabs, I got the first call and agreement was made :)

    Looks like a great pickup, congrats. As stated above look to clean up the crystal and you'll have a cracker there.

    Friends and first calls are the foundation upon which we stand to get the good ones. Get it all dolled up and post some pix when you can.

    I am absolutely loving it! I am on the fence about having the crystal polished as I really like to preserve the natural state...
    One question I am going back and forth on is whom to employ for the service of it? This watch is special to me and I think my local guy could do it, but I don't mind paying more to get this in front of a specialist, any recommendations are appreciated!
