The Grey NATO - 128 - Aquastar, Doxa, And Hayabusa Swaps With Rick Marei
This episode features an extra-long interview that has been in the making for a very long time as Jason and James have an in-depth chat with the man behind the re-launch of brands like Doxa and Aquastar – Rick Marei. From the early days of online watch retail to how Rick’s watch collection helped set him on a path of bringing us all some of the best vintage re-issue dive watches ever made.
Along with watches, Rick chats with the TGN boys about some of his wild cars, almost losing Clive Cussler’s watch, and how he came to own Jacques Cousteau’s own Doxa. After that, stay in the mix for a set of final notes that sticks closely to the diving and car themes brought up in this episode. Thanks so much for listening and to G-Shock for supporting this episode. Just press play!
