Rank #2: The Grey NATO - Ep 92 - TGN Film Club 3

Podcast cover
Read more
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).

Podcast cover

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 #12: The Grey NATO - Ep 78 - The Baselworld 2019 Megasode

Podcast cover
Read more
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. Just press play and thanks so much for listening.

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.

The Grey NATO - Ep 93 - A Chat With Andy Mann

Podcast cover
Read more
To most watch enthusiasts, the name, Andy Mann, might be familiar from his association with Zodiac watches, in particular, the recent Super Sea Wolf 68 Saturation collaboration that he helped design. But his work goes well beyond sketching out dive watch dial designs. He’s a National Geographic photographer, a senior fellow at SeaLegacy, and an award-winning filmmaker. He’s also an avid rock climber who makes his home in decidedly landlocked Boulder, Colorado. In this episode, Jason talks to Andy about how he got started in his enviable career, his travel and packing hacks, and what is on top of his adventure bucket list (it’s a good one).

This interview was recorded remotely and includes some strange audio qualities as a result of the equipment available onsite. Our apologies for the less than incredible audio quality and we thank you for your patience as we work out a solid solution for recording these remote interviews in dynamic environments. Thanks to Zodiac Watches for facilitating this interview and to Andy Mann for taking the time to chat with The Grey NATO. Enjoy the show.

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.

Whether fall is when you start to sharpen the edges of your skis or hibernate while planning next year's adventures, it's always important to consider your readiness for whatever adventures lay ahead. And while factors like cost, gear, and goals are all important, you want to make sure you're fit enough for the task. In a rare face-to-face episode, Jason and James respond to the numerous fitness-related inquiries they've received over the past couple of years. Recorded while both Jason and James were briefly in NYC, this episode digs into the guy's history with fitness both in success and in failure.

From a shared disdain for gyms to a lasting appreciation for activities that take us outside, Jason and James have dabbled in more than a handful of workouts and diets and are constantly evolving their approach in an attempt at highly functional and healthy living (a fella can dream!). Be sure to stay all the way through to the end for a chat about the new Land Rover Defender and a strong set of final notes.

The Grey NATO - Ep 90 - A Chat With Paul Scurfield Of Scurfa Watches

Podcast cover
Read more
Episode 90 of The Grey NATO is a conversation Jason had with Paul Scurfield, a UK-based commercial saturation diver. For some, Paul may be familiar from his other job as the founder of the Scurfa watch company, a brand he started in order to make tough, affordable watches he and his fellow divers could wear on the job. But Paul isn’t just a microbrand champion. He’s collected Tudors, Rolexes and the odd Patek Philippe over the years and remembers his teenaged years looking longingly at COMEX and military Submariners in the Army Navy shops in Newcastle, England, before their prices got where they are today.

Paul talks to Jason about his work in commercial diving, the nature of this arcane kind of work, his history collecting and wearing watches, and explains why older iPhones were more helium safe than newer ones. He also talked a little bit about running his own small brand and the philosophy behind Scurfa. Additionally, don't miss Paul's fascinating report on WatchUseek about the function and application of Helium Escape Valves, he's one of the few people that can speak about HEVs with authority and it's worth a read for any dive watch enthusiast (click here to read: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f74/helium-escape-valves-my-findings-4846395.html)
Producer's note: this recording was done several months ago via Skype between Paul’s home base in England and Jason’s in the US. At the time we didn’t have a specific intention of using it for The Grey NATO, so the sound quality isn’t quite up to the standards you’ve come to expect from TGN. But James did his best with the edit, and we think the content of Jason’s chat with Paul is worth it, which is why we decided to run this as a full episode.

For more information about Scurfa Watches, you can check out his website (www.scurfawatches.com), and be sure to follow Paul on Instagram (www.instagram.com/scurfawatches)

James is back from the road with some of the latest and greatest from Leica in hand and Jason isn’t exactly slumming it while hitting the great lakes with the new Two-Tone Rolex Sea-Dweller (aka. the TTSD) on wrist.

The Grey NATO - Ep 88 - A Chat With Nirmal “Nims” Purja

Podcast cover
Read more
Today’s episode is a special one because it consists entirely of a chat Jason had with the mountaineer, Nirmal “Nims” Purja. Nims is a former Gurkha Regiment soldier and Special Forces operator in the British military who has set out this year to climb the 14 highest mountains in the world in just seven months. To put that in perspective, the current record for such a feat is over eight years. He calls this ambitious goal, “Bremont Project Possible”, which obviously takes the first part of its name from his primary sponsor, Bremont Watch Company. In fact, when I spoke to Nims a couple of weeks ago, he was in London for a short break after completing 11 of the 14 climbs, and he recorded his side of our call from Bremont’s London boutique (our apologies for the background noise).

Even if you haven’t heard of Nims, you’ve probably seen a photo he took. After a particularly tragic climbing season on Everest, the news media turned its attention to the issue of overcrowding of guided climbing clients, and a photo Nims took of the queue of climbers on the South Ridge became famous, appearing everywhere from the New York Times to CNN. Nims and his small team were the first to put up ropes to the summit of K2 this year, and along the way to several other peaks, he’s led rescue efforts to aid stricken climbers, even as he’s been chasing his own record.

Nims is heading back to the Himalayas shortly after this episode airs, with three mountains left to climb: Cho Oyu, Shishipangma, and Manaslu. You can follow his progress by checking out his Instagram feed at @nimsdai. Thanks so much for listening, just press play and please consider supporting Bremont Project Possible via the links below!

The Grey NATO - Ep 85 - A Chat With Cory Richards

Podcast cover
Read more
Welcome to a special episode of TGN. It’s been far too long since we had a “chat” episode (our term for episodes that feature an interview)and Ep 85 features the incredibly talented and entirely affable Cory Richards. A professional photographer, alpinist, and adventurer, Cory has been all over the world shooting photos and telling the stories of far-flung lands.

Cory is also an ambassador for Vacheron Constantin and the brand recently supported a recent expedition of Cory’s (along with his climbing partner Esteban “Topo” Mena) where they attempted to summit Everest in a truly daring fashion (and with a unique prototype VC on wrist). It’s a wide-ranging conversation about motivation, the fear of death, and the things that bring us all together. Just press play and a big thank you to Cory and Vacheron Constantin for making this interview happen!

The Grey NATO - Ep 84 - Homage, Yes Or No?

Podcast cover
Read more
The boys are in full summer mode as Jason gets back from another trip deep into London with Omega and James is on mic from HODINKEE HQ in NYC. From the depths of the five oceans to war museums and maybe even a pub, Jason has plenty to share from Jolly Ole and James soldiers on after his MacBook Pro finally gave up and drew its final breath.

For the main topic, Jason and James attempt to dig into the idea of homage watches. The good, the bad, and the ugly – you might be surprised that the boys aren’t entirely on the same page when it comes to this hotly contested and entirely divisive topic. Jason and James do their best to capture both sides of the discussion so please let them know in the comments. Do you like homage watches? Would you buy an homage with your own money?

Finishing up with a varied set of final notes, James has a new camera case and Jason has an excellent Netflix diving documentary and a NATO-adjacent strap recommendation. This episode is proudly brought to you by Bremont Watches – thanks so much for listening and just press play!

The Grey NATO - Ep 83 - Collection Inspection Vol 7

Podcast cover
Read more
Jason is back from Wales with stories to tell. From RAF bars to the hangouts for alpinists and special forces alike, Jason went from the coast to the peaks in hunt of castles, grey skies, and meat pies.

This week’s main topic is a new installment of Collection Inspection (Vol 7!). James has picked his Doxa SUB300T 50th Searambler and Jason his vintage Tudor Submariner. It’s a dive watch heavy inspection but both of these classic designs are worthy of time of your wrist and the boys take a closer look at the appeal and value of both watches.

Stay away from the “next” button long enough for Jason and James to recommend a soil trio of final notes. From watch cases and straps to a wonderful nautical photography project with a special subject, the boys have you covered. Thanks so much for listening, just press play!

The Grey NATO - Ep 82 - Watches, Adventures, And Ambassadors

Podcast cover
Read more
Exploring the relationship between watches and adventure, the boys dig into tool watches, brand sponsorships, ambassadors, and more. As the format of the modern tool watch continues to evolve, the concepts become more and more tied to the few that are out there looking for real adventures. From Omega with the Apollo program, Rolex with the high and low points of our terrestrial home, and several other brands looking to explore and preserve everything in between, the adventure is real and there are likely some watches involved along the way.

Also in this episode, James recounts his experience at the Monaco Grand Prix with TAG Heuer and Jason packs his bags for Wales. Stay in the mix for a solid set of final notes that will keep you listening, well-caffeinated, and maybe even supporting a worthy new watchmaking project. Just press play.

The Grey NATO - Ep 80 - Vintage Cool Or Too Cool To Wear?

Podcast cover
Read more
We made it to 80! Thanks for tagging along. In this episode, the boys dig into a question from a listener that considered what happens when a vintage watch becomes too valuable to continue its life as a sport watch and may force the change of context into becoming a pure collectible. As you can imagine, Jason and James want nothing more than for all of you to wear your watches and enjoy life’s adventures, but there is definitely a turning point where a watch becomes more of a collectible than something you wear to tell the time.

Jason and James wax (non) poetic about this conundrum and top off the show with a trickster final notes from Jason and James’ recommendation of a lovely guide to the world of mid-century modern design. Just press play and thanks for listening!
