Shinola’s Bronze ‘Monster’ Diver Makes Its Beautiful Debut

Shinola’s Bronze ‘Monster’ Diver Makes Its Beautiful Debut

Inspired by the Prohibition era and the stealth of rumrunners on Michigan waterways, Shinola’s new bronze treatment for their automatic diver is a first for the Detroit-based watchmakers.

The Shinola Bronze ‘Monster’ seeks to transport wearers back to the 1920s with a commanding wrist presence that simultaneously flies under the radar.

Joining a collection of steel dive watches otherwise named after the Great Lakes, the new Monster keeps a low profile with a black dial and a black bezel highlighted with matching bronze numerals.

Housed in its 43mm case is a Sellita SW 200 automatic movement with a 38-hour power reserve and 300 metres of water resistance.

Given that bronze is both a first for Shinola and still a relatively premium material, the Bronze Monster is US$200 dearer than its steel original, retailing at US$1,650.
