Shinola Monster GMT Automatic Watch

Published By

Tool watches do a lot more than just tell the time—they’re tailor-made for specific purposes, like the dive watch’s pressure-resistant case and rotating bezel used to indicate when it’s time to come up for air, or a race watch’s stopwatch function for recording lap times. They’re heavily on the “function” side of the form versus function debate.

Shinola’s Monster GMT Automatic Watch takes its cues from tool watches, all while creating a new and highly individualistic style to match the Detroit-based brand’s aesthetic. Replacing a ceramic bezel with a shiny and durable stainless steel one, it’s fully protected for up to 10 atmospheres of pressure. That makes it a reliable—but extremely handsome—tool for land, sea, and air, and a truly unique watch to add to your collection.
