The Grey Nato - Ep 33 - The Perfect Watch Trio

What three watches would you get if you has $10k to spend? Based on a simple but thought-provoking question sent in by TGN listener Matt, Jason and James dive into the idea of a perfect watch trio, from how to pick the watches to the philosophy behind perfecting the blend of sporty, diver, chrono, GMT, titanium, quartz and more. If you want to weigh in, send us your perfect trio via email to thegreynato@gmail.com. Also in the show, James is prepping for a trip into the South Pacific, Jason is back from St. Barts, and the winner of our Unimatic Giveaway - listen to find out if it was you! Finally, tweed and whisky in scotland, the rules of professional speeding and a list of great gear to kick off the camping/hiking season. Just press play, thanks for listening!
