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.
