Get Your Handmade Watch Here
Detroit’s own Shinola comes to Chicago
And now, a brief paean to Detroit.
You gave us the ‘80s Pistons. Bob Seger. The pistol-whipped fables of Elmore Leonard.
And now: wristwatches by Shinola, which just dropped its first Chicago retail location in Wicker Park.
For the uninitiated: Shinola makes quality timepieces. Classy designs that can be dressed up or down.
This means straight stunners like their brand new Black Blizzard all-titanium watch. Or the mightily clean Runwell Chrono. Or your correspondent’s current favorite: the Brakeman, an updated take on the classic gentleman’s watch of yore.
All this hand-assembled in Detroit, right down to the movement.
But it doesn’t stop there. Also on hand:
- Shinola’s line of two-wheeled steeds
- Accessories for man’s best friend
- And modern goods from our friends at Field
And the leather? Sourced right here, from Horween.
