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.

The Grey Nato - Episode 11 - "What's Old Is New (again)"  

It's episode 11 and Jason's chasing lizards in Florida while James is back from the canyons of LA. The main topic this week is the trend of "New Vintage" design in watches. Likely the biggest overall trend in watches these days, the guys get to the bottom of why we want new old watches. Keeping with the theme, Q&A covers diving with old watches and why Panerai watches aren't always considered divers.

The Grey Nato - Episode 10 - "Collection Inspection: Volume 1"  

This week we’re starting a new series, the Collection Inspection, in which we each pick a watch from our personal collection and explain what it is and why we like it. James chose his Omega 2254 Seamaster and Jason his Rolex Submariner 14060M. In Q&A we’re talking dress watches and chatting about some of our favorite hikes, from BC to New Zealand, Alaska and the North East, the list is long so get out there. Finally, we’ve got some certified fresh final notes covering everything from Briggs Cunningham to the latest issue of Gear Patrol magazine.
