Shinola is paying tribute to the Great Lakes that surround its Detroit headquarters with a special edition automatic dive watch known as the Ice Monster.
As the watchmaker explains, the Great Lakes were once mile-deep glaciers during the ice age that buried its home state of Michigan.
The Ice Monster will be the strongest and lightest watch in Shinola’s collection thanks to the use of titanium for its 43mm case and bracelet.
Titanium is given a brushed finish that contrasts with the gloss of the Ice Monster’s glossy white enamel dial with white hands and hour markers framed by a black unidirectional divers’ bezel.
Its Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement with 38 hours of power reserve, is protected inside a watch that will survive to a depth of 300 meters.
The Ice Monster goes on sale on October 16th for $1,675 at Shinola stores and Shinola.com.
