Monta Updates the Popular Skyquest GMT
Dropping today, September 2, 2022, at 10am US Central Time is the latest iteration of the Skyquest GMT from St. Louis-based Monta. This new version has a redesigned case, new dial, new GMT hand, and what Monta calls a "patent pending bezel technology."
The Skyquest is perennially sold out on Monta's site — and with good reason. It is a handsome-looking watch and the improvements that Monta brings to this new version are definitely worth a long look.
There appear to be three key models: One with a black dial/black bezel, one with a black dial and "Coke" bezel (red and black), and one with the same black dial, but with a "Pepsi" bezel (blue and red) and gilt markers, indices, and hands. All three are extremely handsome watches and are powered by what Monta calls the "Caliber M-23", which is based on Sellita's popular SW330-2.
The Skyquest goes on sale shortly and will begin shipping in November 2022. The pre-order price is $2190 USD and will climb to $2435 USD as the full retail price.
Preorders will open shortly on Monta's site.
