Here’s another watch from the new Detroit manufacturing company, Shinola.
As with the Runwell, I really like the look: Industrial, but with a modern design aesthetic.
From the sales pitch:
Inspired by the watches of locomotive brakemen of the early 1900s, a handcrafted watch offers classic American style powered by an innovative Detroit-built quartz movement. A magnified date window and luminous markers detail the easy-to-read dial beneath a double-curved sapphire crystal case. The handsome cushion case and genuine alligator strap create a tailored silhouette that transitions from work to weekend.
47mm case; 24mm band width.
Deployant clasp closure.
Detroit-built Argonite 715 quartz movement made with Swiss parts.
Sapphire crystal face.
Stainless steel or gold ionic plate/genuine alligator leather.
By Shinola; made in the USA.
