Originally founded in the 1870s before having its name revived in 2011, Shinola has spent the last decade establishing itself as one of the most eminent American watchmakers. And now, for the first time in the Detroit horologist’s illustrious ten-year history, Shinola has unveiled its first-ever automatic chronograph watch equipped with a tachymeter function with the Canfield Speedway.
Unequivocally Shinola’s most complex and technical timepiece thus far, this Canfield Speedway is kept ticking via a Swiss-made SW510 chronograph movement with 27 jewels, a 48-hour power reserve, and a custom Shinola checkered flag rotor that’s on display through the watch’s full exhibition case back. The watch is built around a 44mm polished stainless steel case with smooth chrono pushers and a Shinola lightning-logoed crown, paired with a vintage motorsport-inspired black perforated leather strap. Inspired by the stock cars and hot rods of a century ago, the US-assembled chronograph sports a black dial juxtaposed via a white fixed tachymeter scale along the bezel and bright orange, red, blue, and yellow highlights accenting the tachymeter and sub-dials. Sold in a tool box-style case, the Shinola Canfield Speedway will be available starting on May 20th with an MSRP of $2,995, though you can also sign up to be on the waiting list for a Limited Edition variant starting May 17th.
