Shinola Lake Erie Monster

Nov 8, 2017

Category: Style

For four years Shinola has consistently produced attractive and classically styled watches. Now – after a long wait – they’re finally releasing not only their first dive watch, but the first watch with a mechanical movement. Introducing the Lake Erie Monster dive watch.

The timepieces’ 43mm 316L stainless steel case holds a Swiss Ronda R150 mechanical movement that drive’s the date window and three luminescent hands around a black dial marked with Super-LumiNova indices. The entire timepiece is rugged enough to withstand pressure in depths as low as or 1,000-feet underwater, and boasts an anti-reflective sapphire crystal that makes legibility easy both in the deep and on the land. The caseback on the watch features a sapphire-eyed monster – an homage to the legendary creature first spotted in the freshwater lake as far back as 1894. While these will not be as hard to find as that one true leviathan lurking beneath the waves of our Great Lakes, only 500 of these will ever be made. Each comes in a box complete with three straps, a Princeton Tec Genesis black dive flashlight, and a map of Lake Erie.

Purchase: $2,250
