The Grey NATO - Ep 39 - Seaforth

We’ve waited and mentioned it many times before and now the Halios Seaforth is in the wild! Both Jason and James ordered their ideal version of this hot new diver and the guys break down all the details, #teampastel style. In addition to announcing the new TGN Supporter Bundles, Jason is looking for wallet recommendations and James is off to Pebble Beach (say hi if you’re gonna be there). For final notes, we’ve got lost space stations, a new ebook about watch photography, Netflix’s “Chasing Coral”, and the fastest up the hill at Goodwood.

The Grey Nato - Ep 38 - Does In-House Matter?

We dig into the various blends of in-house and kick off what may well be an ongoing conversation about the actual wrist value of a manufacture movement. We also announce the winner of the #Oris65TGN giveaway, chat about sailing in Bermuda, a couple of new watches from Halios and IWC, and offer up a solid trio for Final Notes. Just press play, thanks very much for listening and please send your feedback to thegreynato@gmail.com.

The Grey Nato - Ep 36 - Quartz Crisis?

Episode 36 kicks off with an amazing giveaway. No spoilers, but this is one you do not want to miss (hint: it’s a dive watch). Jason is off to Vail for the GoPro games and James has fallen down yet another camera gear rabbit hole (don’t even bother sending help). For the main topic, the guys are talking all about quartz! Why it gets a bad rap among enthusiasts, why it’s still awesome, and a collection of some of their favorite quartz watches, both old and new. To wrap it up, we’ve got new music selections from Lady Lark and Fleet Foxes as well as a 360 degree view below the ice in Antarctica, and a handy new gadget called the Firebiner.

The Grey Nato - Ep 29 - The Bremont Field Report

Our new website is live: thegreynato.com (a special thank you to Trevor Boyson for all of your help and guidance getting the website off the ground!)

Episode 29 is a field report that was recorded face-to-face in London at the Bremont Townhouse. As Bremont is not attending Basel, they invited press and retailers to come visit them on their home turf so Jason and James were visiting the popular UK-based brand to see their latest 2017 lineup. The guys chat about the trip, Bremont, and most importantly, the new watches! 

After that, we’ve got a mix of vintage space, trans globe adventuring, and the guys wax poetic about TGN demigod Dick Proenneke. Just press play and thanks so much for listening!

The Grey Nato - Ep 27 - Future Classic Watches

This week we’re tackling the idea of Future Classics. Watches that we will look back on in 30+ years with fondness and perhaps the urge to acquire. Also, flashlights, as James has gone off the deep end with a selection of hugely impressive torches from Muyshondt. Finally, we’ve got a new news platform, some TGN-approved Sci-Fi, and a time-lapse tour of some long dead military hardware. Just press play and thanks so much for listening!

The Grey Nato - Ep 26 - Field Report SIHH 2017

"LIVE" from James' hotel room at SIHH 2017, we're talking all about Geneva's biggest watch show.

Please forgive the lesser-than-normal audio quality and thanks so much for listening!

The Grey Nato - Ep 23 - Collection Inspection Vol 3

OUR FIRST GIVEAWAY! - Our pal @watchmax on instagram ended up with two Prospex SRPA21 PADI divers and wanted us to give one away - who are we to argue? Listen for all the details! For episode 23 the guys are bringing the Collection Inspection back! Now at Volume 3, James is talking about his much loved Bremont SOLO and Jason continues the aviation theme with his very cool Oris ProPilot Altimeter. For new business, Jason is back from Bonaire with a new dive computer and some underwater time with the Unimatic Modello Uno U1-B and James has gone off the deep end with flashlights (he can’t help himself). Finally, we’ve got a classic collection of car, diving and flying-themed final notes to get you through to the next episode. Speaking of which, please note that we will not have a new episode on January 3rd, 2017 but rather will push EP 25 to January 10th to better synchronize with SIHH. Just press play, thanks for listening!
