Duneshore Shallows | Tangerine FissionSeptember 29, 2021 4:15 pm
The Duneshore Shallows reinterprets the original Duneshore into a fun-loving, unashamedly casual sport 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 maintaining the overall footprint) meant shrinking the dial 2 mm in diameter and creating an all-new handset. The change to the minute hand should be obvious, but the hour and seconds hands are actually new, as well. The dial is datefree and all of the lume on the watch is C3 SuperLuminova. The Shallows makes use of a high-beat Miyota 9039 automatic movement. For more legible elapsed timing, the Duneshore minute hand is now less ‘pen nib’ and more ‘plongeur nib.’ The solid, curved caseback of the watch features a sea lion (with a nod to our lion’s head door-knocker logo) embossing. Dimensions are unchanged from the original Duneshore (44 mm x 42 mm “cushion” case; 51 mm lug to lug), except for thickness, which has increased to ~14 mm (dimensions are a little tricky due to the curved embossing). The Duneshore Shallows is available in 5 dial/case configurations across a variety of straps.
