Drafting Adventurous High-End Watches – A TGN Special With Collective Horology
This is a special bonus episode of The Grey NATO brought to you by Collective Horology and their new collaboration with Armin Strom – The Gravity Equal Force P.03 for Collective. Earlier this year, the folks at Collective reached out to see if we had any ideas for helping them promote the launch of their new Armin Strom collaboration. The result is this, a free bonus episode for the entire TGN audience featuring an enjoyable chat with Collective Horology’s Asher Rapkin to learn more about Collective, their latest limited edition, and then finish with a seriously fun draft of adventurous high-end watches.
And now, a bit about the watch, which is not your usual Armin Strom. In working with Collective Horology, this limited edition model offers an adventurous take on the Gravity Equal Force that draws inspiration from the world of technical outdoor equipment. Sporting a 41mm titanium case, the Gravity Equal Force P.03 for Collective channels the great outdoors with a khaki green fumé dial, luminous markings, a tech-derived patterning for the black movement plate, and ruthenium-coated bridges with a special cut-out design.
Powered by Armin Strom’s automatic ASB19 movement, the P.03 for Collective is the first titanium model for the line and is limited to just 30 pieces. For more information, please visit Collective Horology.
A huge thank you to Asher and Gabe at Collective for the support and especially to Asher for being a great guest and a talented drafter. We hope you all love the episode! Please hit the comments and let us know what adventurous high-end watches you would draft (the sky is the limit!).
