Shinola Introduces Its First-Ever Surf-Rated Quartz Watch With ‘The Duck’

Apr 2, 2020

Shinola’s timepieces have always possessed a distinguished and dignified air, but over the last year, the horological outfit has been venturing into new, more playful and adventurous territory with the releases like the Detrola. And the Detroit watchmaker’s latest offering wades even deeper into this realm, with the introduction of the brand’s first surf-rated watch: “The Duck.”

Named after the “duck-diving” surfing technique where riders dip the board’s nose under a wave instead of rolling over the top it to avoid getting wrecked, the sub-$1,000 dive watch features a 42mm stainless steel case with a bidirectional bezel and drilled lugs. Offered in yellow, blue, or flat black, each version boasts dials with Super LumiNova illuminated numbers and hour markers and paired with a color-matched expandable rubber strap and dive buckles — the same item found on Shinola’s “Monster” dive watch. There’s also a brushed stainless steel version partnered with a stainless steel bracelet. Water-resistant to 200m, The Duck is powered by a 713 quartz movement. The Duck becomes available on April 7, with pricing set at $650 for the Canary Yellow and Bay Blue, $700 for the Black Matte, and $850 for the stainless steel “gift set” version which includes a black expandable rubber strap.
