Big look. Big dial. Big numerals. Bright lume. Hella style. 

The 442 is named after one of the biggest, bad-dest muscle-car big block beasts to ever roll out of Detroit - the Oldsmobile Cutlass 442. Both a pilot watch and diver, if you're looking for a piece that you'll never want to take off, and can survive a snorkeling or skydiving adventure, or both on the same day, look no further. Drape this baby along your driver's-side

A perfect gift for your dad, Son, or any male friend.

Comes dressed up with our 316L stainless bracelet. And the 442 looks pretty dope on women who wanna rock some wrist candy too. This piece looks amazing on a NATO strap.

Incredible watch for the money!

Today I received my 442 Adventurer in Americana.This thing is stunning! It has the tried and true NH35 movement, solid end links, screw in links and the clasp has micro adjustments as well. Lume is quite good on the dial and the Bezel 12 o clock PIP. Super easy to size, and they included a ton of instructions (QR) to do or yourself if you want to. The reason why I liked this so much was not only because of the actual dial and American color scheme, but also the homage to the Oldsmobile 442! I lusted after one for many years as a kid, and wanted one for my first car. Although I never got one, I have several Ford Mustangs, and love anythitn related to American Muscle. I will definitely be picking up a few more Monterey Watches, and if they ever make a homage to the Mustang, I'll be buying one as well!

442 All Day!!

Received my 442 and couldn't be happier with the numeric dial and matte black bezel. Within a day I received multiple compliments and questions from strangers that saw it on my wrist. The luminescent is fantastic!!! I wear this piece with a suit as well as jeans; it fits all occasions:) If you're looking for a timepiece that's different than what's on others wrist, this is the perfect option! If you're on the fence, take the leap and you won't regret it!

Great watch, exceeded my expectations

This is my first Monterey watch purchase, but I don't think it will be my last. The 442 has rugged minimalist good looks and reminds me of a Sinn watch (but at a fraction of the price). It is also versatile enough that you can wear it in a variety of settings. Tim is a pleasure to work with and seems to care about each customer. One thing that blows me away is how accurate the watch is for an automatic at this price point...the watch had already been regulated to within chronometer specifications when it arrived:) My watch loses about 3 or 4 seconds per day on the wrist. However, if I place it face up on the night stand when I go to bed at night it gains back those 3 or 4 the watch stays remarkably accurate.
