The Forged Carbon Monster Automatic 45mm
Our latest Monster Automatic Dive Watch has surfaced. 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. Read more on Our Stories.
Inspired by the Black Beach of northern Minnesota, the Forged Carbon Monster has a uniquely etched and colored 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.

WHAT ISFORGED CARBON?
Carbon fiber is the stuff of racecars, space
shuttles, and robots.
FORGED CARBON IS THE STEP ABOVE.
To create the case of the Forged Carbon Monster, 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.
- ONE-THIRD AS DENSE AS TITANIUM—BUT STRONGER
- HALF A BILLION CARBON FIBERS PER SQUARE INCH
- NO TWO FORGED MARBLED PATTERNS ARE ALIKE
UNDER THE SURFACE
Along the shores of Lake Superior, there is a legendary Black Beach surrounded by rust-orange cliffs. This dark sand and bright stone bear witness to the Great Lakes’ long industrial history. Taconite, a byproduct of iron mining, is the source of the shore’s strange color.
Long since regulated and now a public park, the beach stands as a unique reminder of what the Great Lakes have given us—and what’s worth protecting.

AUTOMATIC SW200-1 MOVEMENT
Powered by your movement, this 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.
FORGED CARBON CASE
To create the case, carbon fiber is chopped into short pieces and forged by mixing, melding, and molding it with resin under intense heat and pressure. Ultra-light, the forged carbon case possesses three-dimensional strength that traditional carbon fiber sheets can’t achieve.
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.
IN THE SHADOW OF
THE BLACK BEACH
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 indices 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.
A DIVER’S TREASURE CHEST
