Grails, Holy Grails.

Watches I want, but may never have - and I'm ok with that. 
It doesn't signify a lack of ambition or acceptance of a situation, it could but it doesn't, it simply acknowledges that I may not have the money, I may never have the money or if I have the money I may choose not to spend it on these watches. This page is showing my favourite watches that I don't have, from the perspective of an artist or architect, you can admire works of art or craftsmanship, ownership is not required for appreciation.
