    Probably got glossed over because the grail was the worthless cousin of the moonwatch until Chuck got involved, it was just another German market Speedmaster that nobody cared about, prices were really low, then he started chasing them and the rest is history. Its sort of like the manual wind Daytonas, there are stories of deep discounts on them well under $1000 even in the 1980s, it wasn't until the last decade or two that people started caring about them at all.

    Yep. Strange this whole concept of "value" of vintage watches. I had a manual wind Daytona which I also inherited (!). Personally, it doesn't do much for me and I sold it at a ridiculous price that some collectors thought was the minimum it might be worth. However, if it goes out of fashion in a few years, it may well be worth only a fraction of what it's. Is "worth."

    Thanks Kyle. Fits pretty well too so it might steal some wrist time from the Chrono Cockpit on days off.

    Starting with the sparkle - used to be my Monday watch, now is my Tuesday watch (until a real watchmaker fixes it).

    Then we're hitting the beach so the Seiko gets the call.
