Today’s main event: a collaboration between two heavyweight legends.

Fighting out of the red corner, weighing in at 236 pounds, the People’s Champ, a man who needs no introduction: Muhammad Ali. And in the blue corner, out of Detroit, Michigan, a company whose hands never stop spinning: Shinola.

That’s right: one of America’s greatest makers just hooked up with (arguably) its greatest athlete on a super limited-edition 10-piece collection that includes a stunning watch (400 pieces), a beautiful single-speed bicycle (25 pieces), gloves, a robe and more.

The centerpiece: super limited-edition watches in two dial sizes (41 and 32mm), with soft leather bands and Shinola’s signature Detroit-built Argonite 705 movement. You’ll also want to take heed of leather boxing gloves tanned in D-Town by the grandson to the Everlast family himself.

Plus: autographed Ali black and whites by shutterbug Thomas Hoepker, a robe from NYC loungewear dons Sleepy Jones and even a leather jump rope.

The sale starts tomorrow. Better keep those hands quick if you plan on scoring a piece.
