Never underestimate the ability of watches in sprucing up your look, or giving you that extra dose of confidence for an interview. We all need to invest in a watch that we’re proud of wearing on our wrists. But let’s face it –– not everyone can afford a luxury watch that costs thousands of dollars.
And so we’re about to unveil one that costs only a hundred-plus dollars, and still works like a charm.
Cue the Gr Montre, a watch that’s crafted to perfection, and is still surprisingly affordable. Follow along as we uncover the amount of thought that has been put into crafting the intricacies of this timepiece.
“Powered by an automatic movement, the watch continues ticking without having to wind it everyday… this timepiece displays a complete calendar.”
Powered by an automatic movement, the watch continues ticking without having to wind it everyday. As long as you wear it, your arm motion keeps the movement running. In addition, this timepiece displays a complete calendar that shows you the month, day and time.
Now, here’s a treat for all the watch enthusiasts: the Gr Montre features a tourbillon. What this does is that it counters the adverse effects of gravity on the watch’s movement, therefore ensuring precision in timekeeping. Having a tourbillon in an affordable watch is extremely rare; it is usually only found in high-end watches.

The Gr Montre is designed for everyday wear. Made of Hardlex crystal, the watch’s glass case is impact-resistant, and thus less susceptible to shattering. The subtly domed curvature of this glass case enhances clarity as you read time off the dial, plus, it lends a vintage touch to the watch’s aesthetic.
This timepiece also feels sturdy and luxurious on your wrist, since it’s built with a stainless steel case and croc-embossed leather straps. Even then, the watch is light enough for ease of movement.
Balancing fine craftsmanship and design, the Gr Montre ticks all the boxes of a luxury watch –– without the luxury markup. You’re getting an automatic watch that exudes the qualities of a brand-name watch for merely US$120.
