WHY ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SO AFFORDABLE?
Monumental Watches as a company is proud to distance ourselves from the other companies in the watch industry. Instead of spending a fortune on Brand awareness and marketing and passing these costs onto the customer, we rely on word-of-mouth marketing and social media to keep our costs down. Companies add a huge markup on their products because of perceived prestige. However, we implement a fair markup to allow individuals to purchase and enjoy more than one timepiece from us.
