The Station Agent Runwell Automati is Shinola’s first Runwell Automatic with a sub-second dial. This evolution of our flagship watch is inspired by the Station Agents that tended to American railways at the height of travel by train. Responsible for the comings and goings of millions, a Station Agent knew the value of every single second—and they needed a watch that could keep up. The Station Agent Runwell Automatic is a tribute to those timekeepers.
Stay on track and on time with the sub-second dial. Watch the Station Agent’s engine—the Swiss-made SW260-1 Sellita Movement—at work through the sapphire crystal exhibition window. From the solid stainless steel case to the Cattail Grizzly leather strap, it’s a watch fit for every occasion, no matter where you’re headed. The uniquely crafted dial features a matte vellum texture and Super-LumiNova on the hands that’s color-matched to aged radium found on vintage watches.
As tribute to how Detroit and Michigan Central Station have risen from the ashes time and time again, the bespoke Runwell Automatic Station Agent box is treated with fire and embossed with the motto of Detroit, and includes an exclusive story booklet and brass badge.
Smooth and sophisticated, this premium cattail grizzly leather strap is hand stitched in the USA. It’s also removable, making the timepiece customizable with the purchase of an additional strap. Shinola leather straps are cut and sewn in America.
The Station Agent Runwell Automatic is delivered in a rectangular red oak box, which features a certificate of authenticity with handwritten details. The timepiece rests on a velvet-textured insert that keeps the watch secure and protected from scratches.
