The White Hurricane 48mm
TRUE THROUGH FAIR OR FOUL
Precision is everything. Inspired by the Great Lakes Storm of 1913, historically known as the White Hurricane, the latest 48mm Runwell Sport Chronograph is crafted from ultralight, ultra strong titanium—like its sister watch, the Black Blizzard.
Tough enough to weather any storm, the White Hurricane’s core attributes elevate it as a trustworthy timepiece. From the titanium case and strap to the double-domed sapphire crystal, it’s tough enough to weather any storm. And in every squall, there’s a light. The entire face of the White Hurricane’s dial glows blue in the dark—like a beacon in a storm.
To celebrate this extraordinary watch, each comes with a custom display box, additional black rubber strap, and story book that dives into the inspiration behind the watch.

TRUE THROUGHFAIR OR FOUL
INSPIRED BY THE STORY OF THE GREAT LAKES STORM OF 1913, THE TITANIUM WHITE HURRICANE RUNWELL SPORT CHRONOGRAPH IS AN INSTRUMENT OF PRECISION.
Because when the going gets tough—and visibilityis nil—you need a watch with the grit to stay true.
November 1913. A winter storm approached the Great Lakes basin from the west. At that time, there were no tools or measurements that could predict what would happen next.
The Great Lakes Storm of 1913 was an extratropical cyclone—a blizzard with hurricane-force winds. It left devastation in its path—and sparked an enlightenment.
After the White Hurricane, men and women dedicated their lives to understanding these invisible forces, forging ahead with innovations in meteorological prevention that saved lives and livelihoods.
To measure forces that can change at the whim of a butterfly's wing, forecasters use tools finely calibrated for accuracy. The Titanium White Hurricane is a tribute to these powerful, finely crafted machines.
FULL BLUE LUME DIAL
Like a beacon in a blizzard, the white dialglows blue in dark conditions.
The 48mm case is constructed from ultra-strong, super lightweight titanium.
Swap out the titanium bracelet for the expandable, breathable black rubber strap.
THE ARGONITE 5050 IS KING OF MULTI-TASKING
The high-accuracy quartz movement in this Runwell Sport Chronograph powers the calendar aperture, three sub dials and a powerful long-lasting battery.
To protect the precision of the movement inside, the White Hurricane is crafted from solid titanium. The case features a classic pumpkin crown, a unidirectional bezel, and double- domed sapphire crystal. Sapphire is second only to the diamond in hardness – making it ideal for protecting your watch from scratches.
FULL LUME DIAL
White with a matte velvet finish, the White Hurricane’s dial is the first in Shinola history to have full lume. Like a beacon in a storm, the white dial glows blue in the dark. Other attributes include three sub dials, applied Arabic numerals and a remote second hand sweep.
SOLID TITANIUM BRACELET
Talk about a strong finish. This three-link bracelet is light, versatile, and made from brushed titanium. It is also removable, making the timepiece customizable with the included rubber strap.
A WOODEN BOX TO TREASURE
Built from premium wood, every Shinola watch box is designed to last for generations.
