2 and 4 are completely different animals. One is around $12,400 and the other $39,870 MSRP. Should I blow my load on one watch now, or save for my Grail Watch (5712/1A)?

Go for AP 3 now, still not easy to find at retail now, and keep your eye on the grail 4 in the future. That's where you want to land eventually.

Maybe your decision will come down to what you can acquire readily versus what might be a long wait on lists. I like option 2 but they are as rare as henís teeth unless you spring for the massive premium in the secondary market (I wouldnít personally). Good luck.

I shouldn't have this problem...

#3 AP. Itís a great piece and will diversify your collection. Personally, I have doubled up like you are considering and eventually my collection got thinned back down.
