Shinola Celebrates Detroit’s WW2 Efforts With A Special Runwell Field Watch

Sep 1, 2020

Category: Gear

Since the brand’s revival in 2011, the Runwell has stood as the flagship timepiece in Shinola’s range of minimalist watches. And Shinola is now releasing a new, special-edition version of the American-made timepiece that celebrates the resilience and fortitude of Detroit’s industrial efforts during the Second World War, in which the city was called on to produce several hundred thousand military vehicles in just a few year’s time.

Starting with the case, the Shinola Runwell Field Watch features a 41mm stainless steel housing with a rugged carbide-coating and is paired with a matching stainless steel crown. The matte black velvet dial is decorated in Arabic printed numbers adorned in a luminous coating — along with the hour, minute, and second hands — set beneath an anti-reflective domed sapphire lens. The Runwell Field Watch also comes with a new, heavier nylon NATO-style Army green band with a quick-release mechanism. Water-resistant to 10ATM (or 339’), the RFW is powered by an Argonite 703 high-accuracy quartz movement. Each RFW unit is sold inside a special gift box, too. Available now, the Shinola Runwell Field Watch is priced at $650.

Purchase: $650
