What is your grail Omega and why?

    I just saw my grail watch - Speedmaster Silver Snoopy 45th anniversary - listed on a local online marketplace and boy do I want to pull the trigger. Personally I've always loved the Silver Snoopy 2nd Edition since I first saw it. The pristine white dial gives away a dressy character without being too serious. The lumed hour markers, Snoopy subdial, and tachymeter scale are beautiful additions. The silver Snoopy on the case back reminiscent to the official pin flown on Apollo XIII. I'm literally in love with this piece. If I had to have only one LE this would be it.

    What Omega have you lusted / are you lusting over?

    PO LM LE... Owned one back in 2013, and moved it on due to financial reasons. But now they’re so pricey they’re becoming unattainable (for me)

    I'm not sure what my Omega grail is. I have a different answer every day :)

    The 23k-ish price is hard to swallow for that Speedy... and this is coming from a guy who spent 23k on a Daytona

    Can't agree more. Unfortunately the inflation hit the Silver Snoopy like a truck.

    Either this (courtesy of @sliceoftime_):

    or:

    I’d be more than content with either one.

    I just discovered the Planet Ocean 39.5--and I can't shake it--in either blue or black. I love how shiny it is. I'd never expected to fall for a PO, but there it is. Do people wear it as an everyday watch? (My wrist is pretty slim--6.5 or so.)

    The 95% of the population that are not multiple watch owners a Omega divers watch or whatever watch they buy or own is a everyday watch ;)

    All I want back is the Moonwatch I had to sell during hard times in about 2007. I sold it via eBay to a guy who met my now wife and I at a garden centre in central Scotland. I’d pay well to get that particular watch back. It had some very heavy memories attached to it.

    A hundred times beyond my wildest hopes. Thank you. I’m very fortunate now that to buy a new Moonwatch would be a relatively trivial purchase - but I would very much prefer that one.

    I completely understand, must have been a tough decision to make and I'm sorry you had to go through this ordeal. No Limited Edition or fancy gold watch can replace a piece you're attached to. At least you know the buyer so you could ask him to sell it back to you at market price?

    I just went back through my eBay history, but because it was so long ago I can’t see anything about the buyer other than his username :-/

    Maybe you can still contact him through eBay, or if he used Paypal you can find his email address there? Or go old school, and write an old-fashioned letter and mail it to his physical address if you can find it.
