A grail watch is a timepiece that you desire to have. It is like a goal. It’s not necessarily an unobtainable watch. It doesn’t have to be expensive or hard to find, although that is where the term originated from – like the holy grail. Watch forum members would see a watch they wanted but couldn’t obtain and call it their grail.
A grail watch can also be a watch that you really wanted and already acquired. For example, when showing off your vintage Breiting AOPA Navitimer, a watch that you spent years saving and hunting for, you might say “this is my grail watch”.
A grail watch is simply the watch that is at the top of your list of watches.
So, what is your grail watch? Leave a comment below…
