Speedmaster Ultimate goal To the Italian MarketSince we provide the Speedy Tuesday feature here on Fratello Watches, we are to determine a considerable amount of Speedmasters weekly. Once in a while, something really rare happens. We already had the honour to feature an astronaut's Speedmaster, a prototype Speedmaster that finished up on someone's wrist and astronaut Stafford's personal gold Speedmaster audemars piguet watch prices . Today we again have an existing - or rare - to feature, an exclusive type of the Speedmaster Holy Grail.This kind of the Speedmaster Ultimate goal - simply because it was nicked from the late Chuck Maddox - was produced for that Italian market in 1987. Only 200 pieces were produced with this automatic Speedmaster in a 'Professional' case.Speedmaster Holy GrailA few words for the Speedmaster Ultimate goal before we discuss the featured watch here on Speedy Tuesday. Chuck Maddox wrote in the legendary article around the Omega caliber 1045 replica watches (based on Lemania's 5100 movement):An individual admission: I'm the main one critical to "the Grail Watch" moniker…My first Vintage Omega eBay purchase was nearly a 376.0822 from Germany in January of 1999. Considering that the 376.0822 what food was in Germany, I didnt know any German (hell anyone in Germany right at that moment), I went instead for any 176.012 (the most common in the 7-8 Speedmaster c.1045 variants which sports an indication II/IV style case) from Iowa for approximately a similar money (about $600 USD). I needed owned my Mark II for 15 years at this time, that style case was a known quantity in my experience, and if I'd an issue with the watch I assumed I could truthfully gas up my Explorer and drive seem to Iowa if you have to, I couldn't actually do by investing in the German watch.In regards to a month later I noticed If only I needed bought both examplesSo I stared seeking another example to buy. And that i searched, and searched, and searched. The only one I found was listed at substantially more than $10,000 on a Japanese website high wasn't a speck of English with that site apart from "Omega Speedmaster" and Arabic numbers. I had to spend each year and a half to discover one more (apart from the Japanese origin one) offered on the market also it was on eBay out of Philadelphia. I acquired into a three way shootout for it using a fellow TZOFer and another on the well healed Japanese collectors and arrived in 3rd place by having an winning bid well north of $2,700 (that is summer 2001). I finally tracked one down about 6-8 months later with the help of another TZOFer and brought home my example. Within this quest I searched while using intensity that King Arthur searched for the Holy Grail and I began calling this model "the Grail" since i was that obsessive about it.Ever since, folks have been searching looking with even more interest because of this particular Speedmaster model. Would it also mean it was Chuck Maddox' favorite daily wearer though? No, that's something totally different, click here article.The Speedmaster Holy Grail was introduced in 1987 being Speedmaster ref. ST376.0822. As stated before, the movement scaled like a Lemania 5100 and used as Omega caliber 1045. This movement was implemented before in (a.o.) the Speedmaster Mark 4.5 and Speedmaster Mark V. watches This time around however, Omega chose to employ this work-horse movement in a Speedmaster Professional 'Moonwatch' case instead of the chunky 1970s Mark-series case or the German Speedmaster Teutonic case. Only 2000 Speedmaster Ultimate goal reference ST376.0822 replica watches have been produced, according to Chuck Maddox' article perhaps even less.Bi-color Speedmaster Holy GrailIn any case, just like the Omega Speedmaster Professional DD 145.0022 - a bi-color version of the Moonwatch - which was especially produced for your Italian market quite a while earlier, Omega chosen to produce a bi-color style of the Speedmaster ST3760822 in 1988.Although you'd might expect this Italian form of the Speedmaster Ultimate goal to possess a DD 376.0822 reference number, the master assured us how the throughout the case has got the ST376.0822 reference number engraved.Limited to 200 pieces only, this Italian form of the Speedmaster Ultimate goal is more rare than its steel brother. Nobody kjnow for sure to all of us weather this model seemed to be delivered using a steel bracelet (reference 1450) or a bi-color variation. The Italian Speedmaster Ultimate goal models we have seen before - in official documentation - were all on leather straps.We found this other Italian reference 376.0822 Speedmaster Ultimate goal having a bracelet on OmegaForums but discussing sure whether this bracelet was originally delivered on this watch.As you have seen, the dial has gilt sub dials with back small hands and a gold tachymeter bezel, pushers and crown. Actually, due to this, some collectors out there call it the "Liberace Grail" rather than Holy Grail.The situation back on the watch is the similar towards the regular Speedmaster Holy Grail, a Speedmaster medallion while using sea horse on the. The only real difference will be the engraved special edition quantity of the watch XXX/200 pieces. The conventional metal Speedmaster Holy Grail does not have any mention whatsoever with the small number of of replica watches.Why Omega didn't make more Speedmaster replica watches like the Holy Grail with a Lemania 5100 based movement is unknown to all of us. It might are already a 'interesting' replacement for the hand-wound Speedmaster Professional as opposed to Speedmaster Reduced has ever been.At that time (1988), the Speedmaster Professional in stainless-steel (with metal bracelet) stood a market price of 1395 Deutsch Mark (which had been while using original Euro conversion rate of 2000/2001 approximately 700 Euro). The steel Speedmaster Ultimate goal ST376.0822 had a market price of 1495 Deutsch Mark (approx 750 Euro). Merely a small difference, so our guess is that the production costs weren't significantly higher (or lower).Anyhows, both versions are rare and had limited productions. It's usually reliant on taste what kind you enjoy best or you undoubtedly are a collector; you simply need all of course.A big thank you in our anonymous Swiss Speedmaster collector for sending us photos of his Speedmaster Holy Grail.More photos inside the gallery below. the best replica rolex Be sure to sign-up for weekly newsletter, you are able to register (above) in the right pane.
