The Shinola Forged Carbon Monster Automatic
Introducing The Shinola Forged Carbon Monster Automatic Dive Watch: Shinola's boldest, strongest, most technically advanced dive watch to date. The innovative Forged Carbon Monster features a 45mm case crafted from forged carbon a cutting-edge material that takes carbon fiber to the next level. Ultralight and corrosion-resistant forged carbon is ultra-strong—but weighs as much as plastic.
Inspired by the Black Beach of northern Minnesota, the Forged Carbon Monster has a uniquely etched and coloured case back that features the Great Lakes and arrives in a special edition gift set with a black rubber strap and woven orange nylon strap with a leather backing. To create the marbled, granite-like finish of the case, carbon fiber is chopped into small pieces and mixed with resin. Under intense heat and pressure, it solidifies into a forged composite capable of incredible feats. This cutting-edge material was originally engineered by Dr. Paolo Feraboli for aerospace giant Boeing, and first commercially applied to Lamborghinis and golf clubs.
Powered by the movement of your wrist, this Selitta SW200-1 Swiss automatic movement drives the hours, minutes, seconds and calendar aperture function and boasts a 38-hour power reserve. 26 jeweled bearings help reduce friction to maintain accuracy. An iron inner housing protects the movement from magnetic disruption.
Rated at 30 ATM and built beyond ISO-6425 specifications, the case also features a stainless steel core, a sandblasted PVD black stainless steel backing and top ring, a screw-down crown, and a unidirectional bezel to keep track of time elapsed under water.
The Forged Carbon Monster’s unique look takes its cues from the Black Beach of Silver Bay, Minnesota. An industrial past left the beaches as dark as the sandblasted black dial. Applied polished gunmetal markers with blue glow C1 lume fill and cream-tipped hands provide easy legibility in the dark. A diver down flag sits below the twelve o’clock marker, and a calendar aperture sits at three o’clock.
The rust orange woven nylon strap has a comfortable leather backing. Use the included black rubber strap for diving and other watersports. Quick release features make the straps easy to swap in and out to suit your activity—or your style.
