Grail - the most desirable watch, tantalisingly elusive and just out of reach, but yet maybe attainable somehow. If I could acquire this watch, it would be the one and only watch that would sate all these horological temptations........for a month or two until nbg, stefs or some other so and so posts in the "what watch are you dreaming...." thread.

Holy grail
