Monta has once again demonstrated their knack for blending elegance with functionality in their latest release, the Noble Voyager. Building on the beloved Noble collection, the Noble Voyager introduces a GMT complication, transforming this luxury sport watch into an even more versatile timepiece. For enthusiasts who appreciate refined details but need the practicality of a GMT, this watch is a compelling new offering.

A GMT for the Modern Traveler

The standout feature of the Noble Voyager is, of course, its GMT complication. Monta has opted for a skeletonized 24-hour hand that mirrors the local hour hand, maintaining the dial’s clean aesthetic. This thoughtful design choice keeps the watch legible and sophisticated, without the clutter that can sometimes accompany additional complications or something like a GMT with a massive colored arrow at the tip.

The 24-hour scale along the dial’s perimeter complements the GMT hand, providing a seamless integration that enhances functionality without sacrificing style. Whether you’re tracking a second time zone for travel or coordinating with colleagues in different parts of the world, the Noble Voyager makes it effortless and elegant.

Dial and Design: Drama in Green and Blue

Monta offers the Noble Voyager with two striking dial options: a sunray blue or green. Both variations feature a lightly textured finish that adds depth and visual interest. The effect transitions smoothly from a rich center to darker edges, creating a sense of movement and sophistication.

Polished markers and hands, treated with Super-LumiNova, ensure readability in low light conditions. The date window at 6 o’clock maintains the dial’s symmetry, a hallmark of Monta’s attention to detail. These elements come together to create a dial that is both functional and visually captivating.

Dimensions and Build: Compact Yet Robust

Measuring 38.5mm in diameter and 10.7mm thick, with a lug-to-lug distance of 47mm, the Noble Voyager maintains a compact profile that is well-suited for a variety of wrist sizes. Its water resistance rating of 150 meters adds a layer of robustness, making it more than capable of handling the rigors of daily wear and the occasional aquatic adventure.

The watch comes on a brushed steel bracelet, enhancing its sporty yet refined aesthetic. This bracelet not only adds to the watch’s overall durability but also ensures a comfortable and secure fit.

Movement: Precision and Reliability

At the heart of the Noble Voyager is the Sellita SW 330-2 movement, a reliable and accurate caller GMT. To me, that sort of detail is less important if you have a rotating 24-hour bezel on a watch, which would still allow you to make on-the-fly jumping hour adjustments quickly while traveling. Still, I’m sure this watch will be great for folks that just casually track a second time zone for work or family contact purposes.

Our Take

With my deep love for the Skyquest, I’ll admit that I haven’t paid much attention to the Noble line. But I think this recent update will open up the collection to folks who might find a watch like the Atlas a little too sporty and under-dressed. If it were up to me, I’d try to score that killer green dial version. The price comes in at $2,395, and delivery is expected in August.
