About Montres Allison
“Montres Allison” means “Allison Watches” in French.
Terry Allison began in the business in 1996 by buying and selling watches such as Omega, Rolex, Breitling, and other well known Swiss brands using classified ads in the Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News.
In the late 90’s, Terry started a website for watch enthusiasts and also created the Montres Allison watch brand. The website for watch enthusiasts was sold to a publicly traded watch company based in New York during the internet boom. Terry became the vice-president of that company. By this time, Terry was very well known in the watch industry as the host of the website for watch enthusiasts.
The publicly traded company helped fund the design and production of the first Montres Allison watches. Those first Montres Allison watches were produced in very limited quantities and were overpriced for the movements they contained and their country of origin. However, Terry decided to only produce very limited edition and custom watches with precious metal cases beginning in 2004.
Terry has made watches for people such as Oprah Winfrey, Celine Dion and her husband; Ben Afleck, Dennis Hopper, Steven Seagal, Josh Duhamel, Molly Simms, Rob Lowe, Joe Nacchio, Jake Plummer, Rod Smith, Joe Pantoleone, James Caan, and numerous others. In fact, more than 10,000 watches designed by Terry Allison have been sold to people around the world.
