Question: would you give up your entire watch collection to only own your grail watch for the rest of your life?

No, but mainly because I don't have a single grail watch. I also don't have single favorite movies, books, or music because tastes change over time. I can see myself loving the same watch forever but I don't think I'd ever have a single grail. The watch I love would have severe sentimental associations and could be a Timex!

If I can get my grail sports and dress watch, then yes.

100% no, I have several grails in my collection lol

Nope. Every single watch I currently own is one I would never let go of. I’d rather never buy another watch again than sell the ones I have as they are very significant to me (and also cover all my wearing needs)

The grail is an illusion! I came up with this a couple years ago (modified slightly for this bowl ☺️): THE 10 GRAIL COMMANDMENTS 1. There is no Grail 2. Thou shalt not name any timepiece thine Grail 3. Time is the ultimate currency in life, but a timepiece does not allow one to live it better 4. Honor thine current collection 5. Thou shalt not keep a timepiece once its meaning has died 6. Thou shalt not lust over a timepiece not seen and worn in person 7. Thou shalt not steal time from those we love in search of material things 8. Thou shalt solicit honest feedback before any purchase 9. Thou shalt remove one timepiece from the collection prior to adding another 10. Thou shalt not covet a fellow Fish’s timepiece

*11. Minute Repeaters are exempt from all Grail Commandment considerations ;)

As much as I love my microbrands, yes, I would 100% give them all up for an FP Journe Chronometre Bleu. Doesn’t hurt it’s worth probably 10x my collection.

Wow it’s at $70k now? Unbelievable...
