I get that the term GRAIL is way over used but is there anything wrong with that watch?

Amen brother! Testify!

The list of most overused annoying watch terms online is getting larger:

1. Mint (inlcuding "minty" and every other stupid sounding variation)
2. Rare
3. NOS (and Near NOS, which is a state that doesnt even exist for god sakes!)
4. Grail
5. Poor Man's Heuer (I am going to end up beating someone unconscious for using this term in front of me I think)
6. Ploprof (not every heavy dive watch is a Ploprof)

and the list goes on and on.....

I saw a new one today!

    Condition:    Pre-owned
    Seller Notes:    “new old stock condition, $1895.00 retail!!”

A Zodiac from THAT company made at the turn of the century, but the seller has replaced the leather band with a NOS one from the 1990's (you can tell by the recycled buckle they used from the 1970's and the band markings).
