The Grail Matrix, 1x05: Watches and Wonders Edition

Daily Grail's guide to what's currently major, dull, profound and trivial.

A breakdown of this week's Grail Matrix:

Profound (and Major):

  1. This precious moment between Aurel Bacs and JCB at the launch of Biver

  2. The stunning 217 carats of yellow diamonds on the new Jacob & Co. watch

  3. The Tudor Roomba at the brand's new manufacturer in Le Locle

  4. Being both equally scared and fascinated by the new FFC model from F.P. Journe

Major (and Trivial):

  1. The hilarity that ensued after Rolex released the jigsaw Day-Date

  2. The cuteness of all the bellhops at Cartier's Watches and Wonders booth

  3. There only being 1 of the Les Cabinotiers Dual Moon Grand Complication from Vacheron Constantin

  4. Dimepiece subconsciously making the Baignoire the new "It Girl" watch

Trivial (and Dull):

  1. The beauty of the colored eggs at Globus

  2. The unpredictability of the weather in Geneva

  3. Missing the S4 premiere of Succession because you have no VPN

  4. Debating whether to start a petition for Hublot to make a Murakami less than 42mm

Dull (and Profound):

  1. Wondering why more brands aren't like TAG Heuer and embracing pink dials for everyone

  2. Wearing anything other than Open Walks to schlep around this week

  3. Never being able to commit to ordering fondue

  4. Being too jaded to ask your childhood icon for a photo when you are booth at the Tudor booth together
