This piece is so awesome. It's a perfect blend of horological tradition and modern hardware. Really high quality and thoughtful construction.

Zach Antonio
Excellent quality at an even better price.

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!

Beautiful Watch!

For the price it’s still of the nicest watches I’ve owned! Seems like stealing for the quality at this price point.

Jeff Weiss
Great watch, bad lume

I love this watch. It is very comfortable. fits perfect. Looks damn good! Price for what you get is fantastic. If only the lume were not awful; very weak and only lasts a few minutes. Maybe next iteration?

Maybe I’m in love

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.
