With a nod to the mile-thick ice sheet that ten millennia ago covered what we now know as Michigan, Shinola has released its latest timepiece, the Ice Monster. The Detroit-based maker of luxury accessories has created a cool, crisp, dive watch that has the soul of winter woven into it. Made from ultra-lightweight and highly durable titanium, the Ice Monster is designed to resist corrosion from chlorine and sea water and it’s considered to be the brand’s lightest and toughest watch to date.
The white enamel dial — boasting Super-LumiNova hands and a diver-down flag symbol at the 12 o’clock position — has been designed for maximum legibility in the underwater dim. With a 38-hour power reserve, this timepiece can be trusted with your deepest, iciest dives. The Shinola Ice Monster is rated to 1,000 feet, and has a turning bezel useful for timing dives. With its monster performance and elegant looks, this watch can go from the frigid depths to a dinner party all in the same day.
