After reading a number of articles, forums, and reviews about Shinola watches for men, I'm convinced the handmade, built in Detroit watches are worth the investment, and here's why.
Large faced, and handcrafted from high-quality materials, Shinola watches are designed for power statements. Make the right arm gesture and this beautiful watch will capture an audience. Pair it with a confident attitude and well-fitted look, and the floor will be yours.
Each Shinola watch tells a story, but they also prompt spectators to ask for one, so be prepared to share, or keep it covered if you're too busy to kick-start a conversation.
The Shinola watch collection contains a number of styles, but here are a few of them. Click here to browse the full line of handcrafted watches.
“The idea is always, where feasible, to manufacture as much of the componentry as possible here in the United States,” says Steve Bock, CEO of Shinola. “It’s a hugely important part of what we’re doing.” (Newsweek, November 2014)
I value Shinola's long game. They are laying the foundation for large scale watchmaking to return to the U.S. To achieve that, America needs the supply chain to be in tact and strong. Shinola is shy about their watches being the result of a collaborative enterprise. They've partnered with a group of American manufacturers who are just as obsessed with craftsmanship and quality. Each of their partners, from Horween Leather (Chicago) to Waterford Precision Cycles (Wisconsin), has a long legacy of making products that are beautiful, meaningful, and made to last.
