The Shinola Mechanic is a hand-wound mechanical watch that honors the simple, tactile analog experiences of life. The name is inspired by the rich history of sign painters in Detroit, who called themselves “mechanics” in tribute to their precision and skill in conveying information with clarity and style—not unlike a well-crafted watch.
In keeping with its throwback design, the Shinola Mechanic features a domed dial, box crystal, curved hands, and a toothy crown for easy winding. The dial numbers’ shadow, outline, and fill harken to classic sign painting techniques. A case back window reveals the mechanical manual-wind movement. Finished with a leather strap, the Mechanic is a truly unique addition to the watch lover’s repertoire, with a plucky wind-it-yourself attitude and style to spare.
The rounded square case of this 39mm timepiece is crafted from polished stainless steel with brushed sides and is finished with a sapphire crystal. Handle your hand-wound mechanical watch with care. To preserve time keeping accuracy, keep it away from magnetic fields and shield it from strong impact that could permanently disrupt the movement.
The domed dial features painted numerals which echo the style of sign painters.
Smooth and sophisticated, this strap is cut and sewn in America and is removable and customizable with the purchase of an additional strap.
