Expanding from their successful range of aftermarket straps, Everest Bands launches their own independent watch company, Monta. The company recalls the dive watches of the '50s and '60s and reinterprets that idea through a contemporary lens. Their first watch, the Oceanking, is a carefully constructed timepiece featuring a 40mm 316L stainless steel case that is rated to 1000ft. The case is accompanied by a 12-piece bezel construction that features a patent-pending 60 click design with a scratch-resistant ceramic bezel insert.
The crystal is a seven-layer anti-reflective double-domed sapphire that sits atop a semi-matte dial with Swiss LumiNova markers and rhodium-plated sword style hour and minute hands. Movement is an automatic Eterna Caliber 3909A with 65-hour power reserve. The watch will have both a micro-adjustable link bracelet option and a rubber strap.
