MONTA Skyquest review: A round-up of what people are saying about our GMT watch

As we get ready to close-out the pre-order phase of the MONTA Skyquest, we looked back at the online reviews of our first GMT watch. Overall, there has been a very positive response from the watch industry press and that, of course, makes us very happy. Here’s a round-up of what what top watch experts wrote about the Skyquest:

Gear Patrol: “What you’re getting here is a diver-style GMT watch with multiple bracelet/strap options for under $2k that looks great and is available in several dial and bezel options – to my mind, Monta is filling a niche here in the GMT market, and they’re doing it with an attention to detail that typically costs much, much more.” (Read more…)

Worn and Wound: “My favorite detail of the Skyquest is the ramp-up in the GMT hand. The resulting shape tightly conforms to the chamfered edge of the the applied markers at 12, three and nine. As the GMT passes over those markers, the space between them is a mere fraction of a millimeter (though I have no way of precisely measuring this). The inner part of the GMT hand skims the dial just as closely. I’m reminded of the ultra-precise tolerances within the engine of my old BMW motorcycle, tolerances which I inexplicably found quite sexy.” (Read more…)

A Blog to Watch: “Monta has shown that microbrands can produce a really high quality watch complete with the finer details we would expect on a higher-end Swiss piece. From the polished case accents, to the excellent bezel, and ultra-comfortable bracelet, the Monta Skyquest checks a lot of boxes for me, and I greatly enjoyed my time with it. I’m a sucker for GMTs, and the design of the Skyquest is well-executed.” (Read more…)
