The Brakeman Watch by Shinola


Shinola has quietly helped to revive the Detroit, MI economy and in the process they have produced some exciting affordable watches. The Brakeman has been one of the flagship timepieces by Shinola for the unique design. This watch is huge at 46mm and is a retro design inspired by locomotive brakeman of the 1900’s. It’s easy to throw this watch in a vacuum and compare it against all watches priced over $500 that can be automatic driven, handmade and etc. For the price of a Shinola, there are other watches that offer a better value. However, not to be mistaken as an over-priced watch, this watch is made with quality materials. The case is made with stainless steel, has a scratch resistant sapphire crystal and the movement is hand assembled in Detroit with over 50 Swiss-made components. We love what Shinola stands for and are impressed with their watches.

Price: $625
