    Anyone ever heard of the Shinola brand? I hadn’t but apparently I look at enough watches that Google decided to start dropping their ads on me. Looks to be a fairly young American company.

    Worst case would be you get to wear an IWC for a bit until your conscious makes you give it back.

    One of a few things I got from my grandfather before he passed my senior year of high school. This was his watch from when most of my mom's family lived in British Hong Kong before emigrating to the United States in the 1960s. Back lists it as waterproof to 10atm (sort of I accidently swam with it the summer between freshman and sophomore year of college), all stainless, shockprotected and tropicalized which I thought was cool.

    After the swim, it stopped running for a few years and I thought I broke it. Had it cleaned and serviced and is running again with zero issues. Band is a little tight now (time is a real bitch) so I may consider swapping out for a Nato strap.

    As a bit of a post script, I've had to take the watch off. The clasp has ripped a bit of the skin off my wrists. Definitely time for a new strap.

    I've heard of them, they have some good designs IMO, but they are pricey for what you're getting. They have swiss quartz movements (Ronda), but so does one of my $100 kickstarter watches. I don't think any of their watches are made in the US, just assembled in Detroit. I think their business model is predicated on the idea people are willing to pay more for an American startup, vs one of the multinational conglomerates. Still, they look pretty good and I've been tempted myself, but I'd probably check eBay to see if you could pick one up used.

    I had the chance to visit one of their shops in Portland and they have a nice variety and their pieces have quite a bit of weight and heft to them. But I found it hard to look past the price tag for a quartz movement with no complications other than a calendar date window.

    The quartz wouldn't be a deal breaker for me, but for near $1000, it's gotta feel special.

    --- edit --- scratch that, for $1k any watch should feel special

    I bought an invicta diver on a cruise ship once. $150. MSRP labelled on it was like $900 (and I know they NEVER sell for MSRP, one thing I hate about the brand.) It would always lose time. I called their warranty department....$40 shipping to them, on the hook for the repair if they get it and its not warrantable, then $40 shipping back to me whether they fix it or not. Customer service was awful. I got it fixed locally for $15 and havent worn it since. Figured out I could buy certain Citizens for around the same price (my most commonly worn Citizen was $700 but thats a diff story). They do have some awesome designs though, I loved the look and feel of that watch.

    sounds about right. the 2 i have are easy to service movements as well. I mostly like seikos anymore but same thing with them. I sent one out that was running 60 seconds slow per day. they told me 2 weeks and it took them 6 months to get it back and it was still slow lol. Took it to my local guy and $50 later it runs perfect
