Production of the Duneshore Shallows has been put on hold. We still aim to make this watch.
The Duneshore Shallows reinterprets the original Duneshore into an unashamedly casual sport watch (hence the Shallows name; as a basic understanding of pressure vessels informs, one should not go building a hardcore dive tool around a concave-backed watch). Though the Shallows understands it will most often be worn with short sleeves and not a wet-suit, it does possess 200 meters of water resistance - enough for just about any recreational dive - should you choose to get wet. This 100 meter increase in water resistance over the regular Duneshore was achieved with a solid back, a 1 mm increase to the wall thickness of the central case, an additional seal in the screw-down crown, and a 3 mm thick sapphire crystal. These changes, along with the addition of a rotating bezel, mean nearly every component of the Duneshore Shallows is unique from the Duneshore. Thickening the central case (while keeping overall length x width dimensions the same) meant shrinking the dial 2 mm in diameter and creating an all-new handset (the change to the minute hand is obvious, but the hour and seconds hands are actually new, as well). The dial now has no date and all of the lume on the watch is C3 SuperLuminova (the original Duneshore and the Linden use BGW9). For more legibile elapsed timing, the minute hand is now less 'pen nib' and more 'plongeur nib.' The now solid, curved caseback of the watch features a sea lion (notice the knocker held in its mouth) embossing. Pictured dial colors are white and teal, but orange and vibrant blue will also be options. The Duneshore Shallows will be offered on the new Duneshore bracelet, as well as on a new rubber strap. Dimensions are unchanged from the Duneshore (44 mm x 42 mm; 51 mm lug to lug), except for thickness, which has increased to 14 mm at the valley of the curved caseback and 15.5 mm at the crest. The unidirectional, 120-click bezel is currently 41.5 mm in diameter. Pre-order price is $750.
