The brainchild of Tom Kartsotis (the founder of Fossil), the Shinola watch factory is housed in a historic Art Deco building in midtown Detroit.
With an average price of $600 apiece, Shinola watches scream made in USA luxury. Our favorite in the collection is The Runwell, or as the brand says:  “The first Shinola watch series ever made in Detroit, engineered with an obsessive focus on crafting a watch of the highest possible quality.”
Besides watches look for made in America bikes and leather goods from the brand. And with a store that just opened in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood, expect much more from Shinola.
