The Watch (the Duck), The Board, and The Cooler:
Ride on. The latest watch in the Shinola Great Americans Series is dedicated to the founder and soul of snowboarding, Jake Burton Carpenter. Limited to a run of 1977 pieces—in memory of the year Jake founded Burton Snowboards out of a barn in Vermont—our most rough-and-tumble sport watch, the Duck, is custom-detailed to honor the legend (and survive any pow turn you throw at it).
Crafted from rugged stainless steel and outfitted with extra thick sapphire crystal, this watch can take a tumble and come back for more—just like Jake. An exclusive blue colorway with red and white detailing harkens back to vintage Burton Performer boards, and the caseback features a 3D image of Jake doing what he did best. Adventure-proof and with the attitude to prove it, the Duck is the perfect tribute to the man who couldn’t resist shredding a coat of fresh powder…or teaching his kids how to flip the bird.
This Great Americans Series watch comes with exclusive gear designed by the talented craftspeople at Burton. Each piece is an homage to Jake and his hands-on passion for making things: a 1980 Burton Backhill Replica Board, influenced by Jake’s early board shapes; a convertible carrying case that doubles as a backpack cooler; an ice scraper modelled after one of Jake’s licenses; and finally, a coffee table book filled to the brim with insights into the life of the soul of snowboarding.
