We’ve been telling you all about fine dress shirts lately, so it’s fitting that now we talk about the accessory that looks best with your fine shirt’s cuff: a luxury watch. Shinola, a Detroit-based company, is presently our favorite line of exquisite watches, and we think you’ll agree.

Shinola watches have some heft—most are 47mm in diameter—but we think this is a sign of quality and a well-made watch. It feels good on your wrist, and looks even better.

Their large faces—which are made from crystal (blue or clear sapphire)—are reminiscent of the oversized watch trend that happened several years ago, and which we think is making a comeback. And also, now that it’s the time of year when we roll up our sleeves, we anticipate seeing a lot of decked wrists.

Shinola watchcases are fitted with a variety of leather straps and stainless steel bands, which are made in Largo, Florida. They all look elegant, sophisticated and powerful.

Speaking of powerful, all Shinola watches feature an Argonite movement (movement, also know as a “caliber,” is the engine of a watch that acts as the powerhouse to make the watch and its functions work. It’s what makes it tick, no pun intended), which is a distinctly American movement and will keep your watch ticking for life.


Come into Harleys today and try on these beautiful timepieces. We know you won’t be disappointed.
