Awesome is Now Affordable.
Our company mission - to break free of the "collecting and loving watches is expensive" mindset. Most of our pieces do not cost more than $300, are all automatic, and use many or most of the same parts as pieces costing 3X as much. We just cracked the code. And we want you to wear them! The design? A perfect yet eclectic tribute to the classic dive designs of the 60s. We are very proud of our product, price and the people who wear them.
Assembled here in Virginia, USA

Monterey Watch Company is a USA-based "white label" watch
company that uses high-quality components to create amazing value for our clients at low cost. We take the “Trader Joe’s approach” - We don’t advertise or spend money on marketing with the exception of some online promotion. We create, assemble, package and QC ourselves using sourced parts from Japan, HK, Switzerland and Singapore. Our pieces are all mechanical/automatic using either Japanese or Swiss movements.
All of our pieces are based on classic watch designs from the ‘50s-60s and can go effortlessly from t-shirt to tuxedo.
Monterey Watch Co. offers a one-year warranty on mechanical repairs and a 30-day return policy.
And why the name? We just thought it sounded kinda cool. Classy yet surf-y. Sky, sun, ocean. A little Pacific, a little Mediterranean. A night at the casinos in Monaco. Spearfishing in the Maldives. Cue the theme music. You get it. Umm, yeah, and then there's the fact that the owner shares a last name with a famous fashion brand that just may cause some copyright issues.
This piece is so awesome. It's a perfect blend of horological tradition and modern hardware. Really high quality and thoughtful construction.
These blacktips are just the best. You will catch people checking them out. Plus Tim's a great guy.
Tim and Monterey always get the little details right that make each watch just a little different. The knurled bezel is so unique. I've never seen it before. The gloss black case looks even better in person and the markers are super readable. 10/10
This could be twice the price and I would still recommend it to anyone into watches. Overall feel, look and build are top notch. Thank you Monterey for providing such a great product!
I've had my eye out for a green bezel white face diver for years. The only two real options are Rolex or an Orient they made a few years ago, but is even harder to find than the Rolex version. Low and behold, Monterey makes one. So, I buy the watch, not knowing what to expect. For the price, it's a really awesome watch. I'm impressed with the quality and feel of it. It has an automatic movement. The metal watch bracelet is branded. Honestly, this watch brings me a lot of joy to wear and is become more and more my daily watch. It's a quality piece!
For the price it’s still of the nicest watches I’ve owned! Seems like stealing for the quality at this price point.
I was attracted to the Great White JTR by it's white face. Because I travel often having a second time zone is important. I saw another creation in which a 1-12 bezel was placed instead of the standard 1-60 dive bezel. An email to Tim and my special creation was on it's way to me. Just like my Blacktip Standard the JTR is a high quality time piece, it fits comfortable on my wrist. It is worth looking at regardless of which bezel you select. Most important is the Tim and Monterey Watch will work with you to create the best watch for you.
I can’t say enough about this watch. I just got the Casino today and couldn’t believe the quality for how much I paid for it. Tim and everyone at Monterey Watch Co. were great and the customer service was fantastic. 10/10 would recommend.
Yeah, it is. Blacked out. Display caseback. Actual leather strap. I’m happy.
Tim is the man! Quality piece and a bang for the buck. It’d buy another
Absolutely delighted with my purchase from Monterey Watch Co.! The craftsmanship and attention to detail in their timepieces are truly exceptional. The elegant design seamlessly blends classic and modern aesthetics, making it suitable for any occasion. The customer service was impeccable, providing me with all the information I needed to make an informed choice. The watch arrived promptly and was even more stunning in person. I'm thrilled with my purchase and would highly recommend Monterey Watch Co. to any watch enthusiast looking for quality and style.
I could just be a spoiled brat, or maybe I just like nice things. But after owing my first Monterey Watch for just 10 days I picked up another. Thanks to Tim and his great communication we put together a beautiful BlackTip standard that feels very one of a kind. I don’t think you can go wrong with a Monterey watch on your wrist no matter what model you choose. Heck, if you can’t decided then get 2 or 3. And you will still have money in the bank. And won’t need to lie to your spouse.
Watch was damaged during shipping. Watch was returned for repair. Still waiting for the watch to be returned.
I purchased the Blacktip Standard for my husband and it hasn’t left his wrist! He loves it and has received so many compliments in the short time he’s owned this piece. Tim from Monterey even personally emailed and spoke with him on the phone when he had a question. Truly can’t beat quality, price, and all around customer experience. Thank you to everyone at Monterey for widening the circle of watch enthusiasts and hobbies alike. My husband is already eyeing his next purchase!
Tim personally intervened to ensure the ordering process went smoothly as possible and even threw in an extra strap at no charge!
The 101DM is a gorgeous time piece!
