The Great White debuted in late 2022 and sold out all three drops.

The 42mm version is the newest 42mm in the lineup.  It’s named after the famous shark and its creamy white underside coloring. The initials "JTR" salute Iraq War vet Josh R., who is such a badass we can't use his last name. Josh was our very first customer and came to us with the idea of a dive piece with white dial and red sweep hand. We loved the idea and it's been one of our best sellers. (Thanks for your service, Josh!)

the GW42 also features a deep domed sapphire crystal  

The Great White 42 looks fantastic with either blue or black bezel inserts, (but we are particularly fond of the blue.) The JTR uses the same case, bracelet and movement as the Blacktip 42, but the dial is a slightly off-white cream, with cream markers and baton hands. And, of course, the awesome red pip on the sweep hand.

Crafted from surgical grade stainless steel, its 42mm automatic movement commands attention and resilience in every adventure. With a robust 100M water resistance, ceramic bezel insert, and domed sapphire crystal, this watch is not just an accessory but a reliable companion for the bold. The black matte dial, adorned with dot indices and luminous hands, offers clarity in any environment. The meticulously polished beveled case and 120-click bezel enhance its aesthetic allure, while the engraved case back and screw-down crown with the distinctive M logo signify craftsmanship and precision. From the three-link brushed satin finish bracelet to the single foldover clasp, every detail exudes sophistication. Let the GW42 redefine your style as you make a statement and push the boundaries of exploration.

This one has become my favorite. I love the aluminum bezel. The red becomes iridescent in the sunlight. Ceramic is still great but the aluminum bezel is something special.

Great watches and great customer service

I loved my Blacktip Standard so much that a couple months later, I ordered a Great White 42. Both are beautiful watches and are exceptionally well made. Monterey Watches is a rare company. When you call, you actually get to speak to the owner. Tim seems to be a nice guy who genuinely cares about his customers. Go ahead and order one but be careful because it probably won't be your last.

Love this watch. Super high quality for the price and looks even better than it did online. It will not be my last Monte!!!

Made me forget about my “dream watch.”

This is a gorgeous, well made and significant statement watch. I like a big, heavy watch and this does the trick. It looks like a watch by my formerly favorite watch company that costs 30x as much. Everything about this watch and band is first rate. Monterey was kind enough to make a GMT version of this for me. Thank you so much Tim for my “precious!”
