The Grey NATO – 223 – Film Club Vol. 9

In the ninth installment of TGN Film Club the guys are back with ten more picks for the collection that span fifty years, multiple genres, ...  and a wide variety of our favorite subjects.

Detectorists (TV Series 2014-2022) - IMDb

Detectorists: Created by Mackenzie Crook. With Mackenzie Crook, Toby Jones, Rachael Stirling, Gerard Horan. The lives of two eccentric metal detectorists, who spend their days plodding along ploughed tracks and open fields, hoping to disturb the tedium by unearthing the fortune of a lifetime.

Hands-On: The Vertex AquaLion M60C Pushes The Microbrand Envelope

With fewer folks in the chain that needed to wet their beaks, the value was passed onto the final buyer along with a special twist. When your company has less than 1,000 customers, you need to make sure that they get what they want. Otherwise, you're not keeping the lights on.

Introducing: The Vulcain Skindiver Nautique

Following last year's alarming relaunch of the darling Cricket, Vulcain has just announced a brand-new vintage-inspired dive watch for 2023 - the Skindiver Nautique 38mm. Taking direct inspiration from a model that was produced by Vulcain throughout the 1960s, this modern interpretation looks to re-issue the Nautique into what is left of today's nostalgia-driven market with the support of a price tag that barely breaks into the four-figure range.

The Value Proposition: The Doxa Sub 200 Professional

Like many (considerably) more expensive Doxa models, the Sub 200 is powered by an ETA 2824-2 Swiss automatic movement. Being the known quantity for Swiss off-the-shelf movements, the ETA 2824-2 is becoming less and less common at this price point.

Ocean Star Tribute

Mido pays tribute to the Ocean Star collection. In subtle reference to the past, the Ocean Star Tribute Swiss watch reinterprets the aesthetic codes of the diving models from the 1960s.
Momentum Watches

Sea Quartz 30 [42mm] - Black

The watch famously worn by Tom Selleck in Magnum P.I. is back. Same owners, different brand. Based on one of the first quartz dive watches ever made. The Momentum Sea Quartz 30 has 300m of water resistance, sapphire bezel, and C3 Super-LumiNova.


Issued to specialized US military units such as the Navy SEALs, UDTs (Underwater Demolition Teams) and US Army Special Forces, the Chronosport UDT is considered by many to be the ultimate military watch of it's time.

Review: The Sixth Sense, Director: M. Night Shyamalam As a film which has undoubtedly caught the eye of the film going world, it was difficult to avoid the surrounding hype and publicity.

Ghost in the Shell (1995) - IMDb

Ghost in the Shell is a masterpiece. I would go so far as to say that it's the second best science fiction film I've ever seen (behind 2001, of course), but no one knows about it.

Blade Runner (1982) - IMDb

The Grey NATO - 198 - Should You Break These Watch Rules?
