Episode 12 is all about the “One Watch” question - listener Scott wrote in to ask if we could only have one watch, what would it be? We made this question our main topic for the show, so join us as we walk through our watch-picking process and answer this troublesome question. This week we also have a special interview as Jason sat down with Hamilton Powell, the man behind CrownandCaliber.com (@crownandcaliber) to chat about the vintage and pre-owned watch markets, the consignment game and literally deconstructing the Apple Watch. It’s a great interview. All that and more, just press play (thanks for listening!).

Rank #6: The Grey NATO - Ep 68 - What Watch Should I Get?

Podcast cover
Read more
Episode 68 is all about how to pick your next watch, and why it might not be the best question left to someone else. But first, catch up with a jet-lagged Jason fresh back from a trip to Sri Lanka full of old Land Rovers and more. Likewise, James is back from NYC with Free Solo on the mind and both of the guys are excited to be back in New York for the upcoming Hodinkee 10 events in early December (see you there?).

When trying to pick your next watch, an email to a podcast host or watch editor might not get you any closer to finding a watch that works for your wrist, this is why it’s hard for Jason and James to tell you what to buy. Watch taste requires experience and time to develop, and whether you get that experience from meetups, trying on friend’s watches, or buying and selling lots of different models, you have to be in the mix to figure it out - no one can do it for you. Listen in as Jason and James dig in on how to pick a watch, how to know what works for you, and if it makes sense to think about your watches as investments.

Finish up with Final Notes about risk from the filmmakers behind Free Solo, stretches we should all be doing every day, a gorgeous new magazine about Chamonix, and James stepping way out of his element to talk about cooking. Press play and thanks for listening. Any notes or questions, hit thegreynato@gmail.com to get in touch.

It’s that time of the year and the TGN boys have even managed to get their annual TGN Gift Guide up with shopping time to spare.

As summer fades and the days get shorter, we thought it would be fun to get another TGN Film Club on the books. As we in the Northern Hemisphere start to spend a bit more time inside, Jason and James have ten great movies to make the most of any time you have to spend on the couch. From James’ endless love of Denis Villeneuve and Michael Mann to Jason’s fondness for Redford as he sports a Doxa Sharkhunter, this list spans seven decades of amazing movies. The boys are sure you’ve seen some but hope there is a fresh pick or two among the list.

Films aside, both Jason and James have new home workout plans following Ep 91 and they catch up after a few weeks of travel. James finally got a vehicle and Jason managed to unplug in a manner most Bond. Just press play, please enjoy, and we can’t forget a huge thank you to Hamilton watches for sponsoring this episode of TGN - click here for a closer look at their Intra-Matic Automatic Chronograph (http://bit.ly/2Pcsrft).

Rank #11: The Grey NATO - Ep 96 - DOXA

Podcast cover
Read more
The last episode of the year! Of the decade! And what a year it has been (thanks to all of you who have been listening). For episode 96, the guys are reviving a format that hasn’t been used since Ep 28, a brand focus episode. The format is simple, Jason and James pick a brand they love and chat about why there is a connection, the scope of that brand’s products, and how they relate to the greater idea of watch enthusiasm. For the third-ever such episode, they are chatting about Doxa. A fav brand for both Jason and James, Doxa makes dive watches that are colorful, historic, and very nicely made – not to mention endlessly loveable.

Before Doxa, the guys have a chat about Leica and the show wraps up with a new (old) bracelet for your Speedy, the watches of James Bond, and a concert tape that James won’t stop talking about. As the next episode falls just barely into 2020, Jason and James would like to extend a huge thank you, everyone who has been listening, commenting, emailing, sharing, and reviewing and to all of the brands that supported the show over the past year. Just press play, thanks for listening, and have a great end of the year.

It’s our annual Baselworld Megasode! At over 2 hours long, the boys really broke the piggy bank for this one and they’ve got all the goods for your listening pleasure. New cameras? For sure. Backpacks? Got ‘em. Day trips into the Swiss Alps like it ain’t no thing? Get on their level. All this and Jason and James haven’t even hit the watches yet.

Dig in for a chat about a couple of new items from Garmin and then a full breakdown of everything the boys liked (and maybe disliked) from Baselworld. Spanning a new “Arnie” from Seiko, a $70,000 Doxa, a proper Navitimer, some heat from Oris, two-tone goodness from Tudor and Rolex, a new Aerospace, and a clock of literal automotive inspiration, Jason and James had a great time at Baselworld and left Switzerland with plenty to chat about.

It’s a new year, and that means a chance to consider the successes of last year and how to best navigate 2019 for maximum adventure (and watches). For episode 72, the guys chat about a handful of watch-related resolutions, dropping camera gear, and a selection of predictions and wishes for the show season at SIHH and Baselworld.
Will Tudor expand their use of Breitling’s chronograph movement? Will we see a steel sport watch from Lange? Is two-tone the next big trend?

The whole year is ahead of us and there’s no telling what the guys will get up to but be sure to stay tuned to the end for a solid selection of Final Notes featuring a magazine, two Netflix shows, and some pants! From a new season of Tales by Light to architecture for the masses, waterproof pants that wear like sweats, and the first issue of WM Brown magazine there is a little taste of a great many things in the TGN Spirit.

The Grey NATO - 120 - July Q And A

Podcast cover
Read more
It’s the end of the month, so it must be time for another TGN Q+A episode! A huge thanks to everyone who sent in a voice memo question. We get into everything from straps to cameras, how to care for a NATO, naming your watch after a problematic historical figure, Shadow Divers, "what ifs," and a whole lot more.

One quick note to those reading this in advance of listening: While we have loved making weekly episodes since March, the time has come to rebalance the schedule, and we're going to move to a format that will be three episodes per month. Thus, starting with the next new episode on August 13, we’ll be going back to an every-other-week format, but we're going to continue doing a monthly Q+A that will come as a surprise drop sometime towards the end of each month (so be sure to send in your questions and subscribe to the feed!).

A huge thanks to all of you who have been enjoying the weekly episodes and sending in your support. We think this new format is a good middle ground that ensures that TGN remains the best show possible. Just press play, and thanks so much for listening!

Jason is back from an amazing camping and diving trip on Lake Superior and James is dropping expensive camera gear and has convinced himself he can fix it.

Hot Dive Watch Summer continues with Jason taking delivery of a strapping new ana-digi Seiko as James continues to work through review units by spending some quality time with the latest and greatest from Sinn. If you want to talk about sport watches, this is your episode.

For the main topic, the TGN boys revive and old show format called “On Paper, On Wrist” in which they team up to review a watch that one of them hasn’t seen and the other has on wrist. For this installment, Jason and James are offering some in-depth feedback on the new smaller line of Seiko Prospex dive watches via James’ new SPX143 (SBDC101).

The Grey NATO - Ep 117 - Summer EDC With Kyle Snarr

Podcast cover
Read more
Fresh off of a week of vacation, the TGN boys are back with plenty of dock jumping energy. Jason kicked back cabin style and reports on the trip’s frivolities while James has become a shepherd to a flock of excellent new dive watches. From Tudor in blue to Seiko, Sinn, and Oris, too, this is an episode most summery and we haven’t even hit the main topic.

For a wider chat about some great TGN summer EDC options, Jason and James called upon their buddy Kyle Snarr who used to work for Gear Patrol and has recently started his own company Cantonment Co and launched their first product - a nicely made and very well considered kerchief (like a bandanna). Kyle chats about the origins of the new product and Jason and James report on their experiencing of using these handy swaths of colorful fabric for all sorts of uses. After that, the trio deep dive on some of their fav EDC gear, and there is certainly a little something for everyone.

Stick around for a varied Final Notes that brings great automotive history lessons, volcanic eruptions, and a new mini-series that is not to be missed. Thanks for listening – just press play!

As Jason and James are taking next week off, this episode is an extra long one as the guys dig into a big stack of excellent voicemail questions from all over the world. From mountaineering advice to King Turtles, watch storage, leather straps, women’s watches, and a lot more, the guys really appreciate all of the questions (keep recording and send your query to thegreynato@gmail.com).

After a week’s break, the show returns with a loose chat about what’s going on in the world and how it all aligns with TGN and the communities the guys love to cover. This episode does not have a formal topic, but rather serves as Jason and James’ attempt to support those in the watch world and encourage everyone to listen, learn, and donate to worthy causes. Finally, don’t miss Jason’s Instagram auction in which you can get an awesome LE Unimatic while supporting Big Brothers Big sisters of America (bidding closes Friday!).

Beyond the more pressing social topics at hand, Jason’s land rover is back from service, James managed to take one top off of his Jeep and then install a different one, and the guys both marvel at the world’s cheapest electric car – the wonderful Changli. Now more than ever, thank you so much for listening, for your emails and messages of support. We’re all in this together.

Episode 111 is the return of the TGN “brand focus” topic, this time taking a close look at none of that Tudor. From the brand’s roots to its relaunch in North America, and an in-depth highlight of many core models, Jason and James break down the strengths and qualities of this well-loved Rolex sibling brand. From the Black Bay to the Heritage Chrono and even the recent P01, there’s more than enough Tudor to chat about.

From the top, Jason is binging a great series for those who loved “Homeland” and James has got some new carbon strapped to his wrist. Stick to the end for a buzz-free (mostly) but tasty beer bread recipe, how to get back into the wild, a push to fix something around your home, and a journey some 36,000 feet under the sea.

Episode 108 is another installment of the Isolation Tapes and a continuation of “isolation socialization” with a special guest from the world of photography. Joining James via a call from Denver, the TGN boys are excited to feature Josh Perez in topic-hopping chat keyed for the creatives (and hopeful creatives) in the audience.

A talented photographer who cut his teeth in the ever-competitive world of adventure sports, listen in for Josh’s story, his tips for those wanting to make the leap into a creative path, and how the launch of his new apparel brand helped put cash in the hands of some talented photographers.

The Grey NATO - Ep 106 - The Isolation Tapes // A Refreshing Watch

Podcast cover
Read more
Back for week… we don’t even know, but TGN is back because it’s definitely 100% Thursday. In this episode, Jason and James are chatting everything from new weights to the history of the SAS, some new reviews, and a lot more. The main topic surrounds the idea of a “refresher watch” the sort of watch that inadvertently gets your watch enthusiasm back in gear. From oddball Seikos to inexpensive vintage watches and maybe even doing your own mods, the guys pull from all corners of the watch world for ideas that will refresh while still respecting a budget.

In Final Notes, Jason has an amazing adventure film now available online (for free!) and James has inherited a farm and bought some (virtual) chickens. Send your questions and comments to thegreynato@gmail.com, just press play, and a huge thanks to The Hodinkee Shop for their continued support of these weekly Isolation Tape episodes.

The Grey NATO - Ep 103 - The Isolation Tapes // Work From Home Like A Pro

Podcast cover
Read more
We’re back a week early! Jason and James are practicing social distancing and in light of having to postpone the NYC hangout, the boys wanted to try to brighten your week by going to weekly episodes for the next bit. We’re all in this together, and, while this will pass, we might as well support each other as best we can. So here it is, The Isolation Tapes.

While future episodes will explore great things you can do without leaving the house (films, books, and Q+A - send in your questions please!), this episode focuses on how to work from home like a pro (Jason has been working from home since 2004!). From planning a routine to understanding needs both extroverted and introverted, the guys do this for a living and hope to make your week just a bit easier (and more fun!).

From cutting your work into phases and understanding when you need a break to Jason and James’s disagreement on the merits of working from bed, it’s a chatty episode that should bring you closer to WFH bliss. Stay tuned for an extended final notes (which the guys are calling “Homework”) that cover Bond, brothers, TV survival, and survival guilt in the mountains. Thanks for listening, just press play, and please send your voice memo questions to thegreynato@gmail.com for our upcoming Q+A episode.

The Grey NATO - Ep 102 - Desert Island Picks (And The Meetup Has Been Postponed. Sorry)

Podcast cover
Read more
Hot on the heels of a very popular Q+A episode, the TGN boys are back with some sad news. Due to the public health concerns surrounding the spread of COVID19, the TGN hangout slated for March 18th has been postponed. While Jason and James were very much looking forward to it, they don't want to be an active element in getting people sick. Once the risk has been minimized, the meetup will be rescheduled.

Back to the episode at hand, it's a special TGN spin on the classic “what would you take to a desert island” question. From essential items to requisite booze, books, and breakfast cereal, it’s a veritable how-to for being a well-prepared recluse.

Stay in the mix for high-pressure final notes that looks into the history of the HeV and offers up a great list of adventure books that are just as good the second or third time as they are on the first read. If you have a question for the guys, be sure to record it as a voice memo on your phone and email the file thegreynato@gmail.com so it can be included in a future Q+A episode.
