For a long time I have dreamed about owning this watch. I loved it ever since it was first released and drooled over all the photo's of other peoples Black Bays.

Image

Yesterday I achieved my goal and purchased my grail. Dreams do come true. It's everything i dreamed it would be.

Image

I know it soon but now I have a new grail watch. One day I will do this again like I did in the shop but know they are both mine. Plus I've always fancied twins. :lol:

Image

Anybody considering the Blue it is truly lovely and oozes class. Deciding which one to buy was one of the hardest choices I've ever made. I had to go with my heart as it was the Red I had always wanted.

I would Imagine if it did it would push the price up near the Pelagos. I think they'll stick to the same formula and introduce a Mark II with the in house at some point when the brand is more established in the UK and US again.

The full picture from the magazine...

It mentions "nouveau calibre manufacture". Of course, it could be wrong.

That will do nicely :thumbup: . Will have to see if I can make a trip to the local AD without the lady of the house noticing.
