The Speedmaster 376.0822 was nicknamed ‘Holy Grail’ by Chuck Maddox for one simple reason: according to himself he searched for this watch with the intensity that King Arthur searched for the Holy Grail. He began calling the Speedmaster 376.0822 “the Grail” because he was that obsessed with it. Source: Fratello Watches.
The watch was loved by Chuck for a number of reasons, it has the famous moonwatch case combined with the legendary Lemania 5100 movement. Named the 1045 by Omega.
Research by Moonwatch Only suggest there were only 2000 pieces made. But it is possible less exist today.
These factors alone are not enough however, this watch is a truly amazing example and the serial dates it to the last production of the Holy Grail, in 1987.
