A little History
The Ultra Holy Grail as it is now known as, were made for one Italian Omaga dealer in Italy. They all started out as standard Holy Grail Speedmasters and were converted by SMH Italia, the Italian importer for Omega in Italy, which then became Swatch Group in 1988.
They were then personalized locally by an Italian watchmaker, who was responsible for:
replacing the standard dials, hands, bezels, crowns, and pushers by the specific ones (those parts being sent separately by OMEGA),
managing the numbering of the wat- ches (actually they were not engra- ved by the watchmaker but by ano- ther local supplier).
