Since its introduction to the Japanese market in 2007, Italian watch maker MONTRES DE LUXE has garnered much attention from that country’s fashion and design circles.  Partly because well thought out layouts on MONTRES DE LUXE’s timepieces.  Another is their sturdy built.  But MONTRES DE LUXE watches quick gain in popularity is mainly due to its value-centric pricing, where timepieces with similar features could easily double in price.

The MONTRES DE LUXE – Black Avio NATO Collection comprised 2 of MONTRES DE LUXE’s popular models from its signature series – the Black Avio.  The Dual Type (or Dual Time) allows time keeping in 2 time zones.  Further time zone calculations could be made with world locations etched on its bezel.  The Tachymeter, with its stopwatch function, allows the calculation of speed, time, and distances.  Inspired by watches wore by Italian troops during the 1950s serving as part of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) coalition, both incorporated rip-stop nylon webbing as wrist bands, instead of the regular metal links.  Both also feature:

- Quartz Movement
- 14 mm Thick Aluminum Casing
- Non-reflective, Scratch-resistant Mineral Crystal Glass
- Attachable Compass
- Waterproof Up To 30 meters

Both are now available exclusively at Japanese specialty retailer, BEAMS, and its branch within the ZOZOTOWN shopping network.
