These made-in-USA timepieces pay tribute to the sign painters of yore in Detroit

The rich history of Detroit’s sign painters inspired this collection of handsome timepieces. Designed to honor the steady hands, clever designs, and unparalleled ability of the self-described “mechanics” to clearly and cleverly convey a message, the Shinola Mechanic 3H 39mm watches are a masterclass in modern-day timekeeping. Shinola’s first-ever mechanical manual-wind movement is complemented by throwback design elements like the domed dial, box crystal, curved hands, and a toothy crown for easy winding. The numbers are illustrated in the same style as the sharp, witty ads scrawled on the sides of brick-walled auto shops, tying together a truly unique timepiece.
