Shinola is launching an addition to its ever-growing Monster Automatic collection, which is a nod to the 1920s.
The Bronze Monster Automatic Timepiece features a bronze case and dark colorways, inspired by the Prohibition era and paying homage to the ‘rumrunners’ on the Michigan-Ontario waterway.
During the time, the people of Detroit developed effective methods of bootlegging alcohol from their neighbor across the river: Canada.
People developed underwater crossings, partially submerged houseboats and even a pipe underneath the Detroit River that connected a Windsor distillery outlet to a bottling plant in Detroit
Powered by the SW200-1 automatic movement, the watch features 26 jewels and a 38-hour power reserve.
It comes in bronze, which marks a first for Shinola, and has a stainless steel caseback and an impressive dive watch aesthetic.
