Last Edited by thestreetlight September 29, 2016 at 12:38 AM
Jomashop has Shinola The Rambler White Dial Natural Leather Men's Watch on sale for $325. Use the coupon code EXSH400 to save $400 off of the regular price of $725. This is a 72 hour sale. You also receive free shipping.

Shinola is based in Detroit and while I would not say this an American made watch, some of the parts are manufactured in the USA while others are still imported.

Case is 44 mm. - Quartz movement.

Seems like a good price if you are into Shinola

Shinola are crap watches that use the same movements as Chinese made watches that sell for around $100. Only they are assembled in the ruins of Detroit by low skill workers instead of Tanjin, China and Shinola gets yuge tax breaks. Total scam.

Why would you buy this when you can get a good quality Swiss watch for half the price?

I guess I like the look of the watches, the fact that the company was established in Detroit, and at least does some of its manufacturing there? The $300ish price point feels fair to me based on those reasons alone, but not the $550-750+ MSRP.

No. Shinola is owned be one of the founders of Fossil, but it's unique company with it's own designs and a higher general build quality than most Fossil watches (sapphire crystal, Horween leather, etc.).

They're still ridiculously over-priced. But they're not just ridiculously overpriced Fossils.

It's actually built in a now thriving downtown by highly skilled workers who make each watch by hand. Have a little respect and stop hating on hard working people in a city working hard to make a comeback. If you don't like Shinola and you don't like Detroit, move on and buy yourself something else without insulting others.

You will be much happier with a Victorinox Infantry GMT. Much better watch for under $300.

I didn't insult anyone. And they don't build each watch by hand. That is just marketing BS. It is low skill assembly work that is no different than the same work done in China.

They use Ronda Swiss quartz movements. I agree they're vastly overpriced at MSRP, but at this price it's about inline with Swiss pieces of of similar build quality. (At this price point, they're all using Chinese-made cases. But the Runwells have a solid build, sapphire crystals, and quality leather straps.)

Not to my taste personally, but no need to be salty about it. That only makes one sound like a babbling fool. Let people enjoy things.

Not at all. I know what I am talking about. They are under investigation for false advertising. You are basically buying a Chinese watch and paying Swiss prices.

From the Detroit Free Press:

"An FTC spokeswoman recently said that Shinola's "Built in Detroit" tagline on the back of its watches could be tantamount to a "Made in USA" claim that requires the strict sourcing rule.
Panis told the Free Press that Shinola was "in touch" with the watchdog FTC and "aware of the FTC's guidance and are evaluating our materials and messaging in that context." The FTC won't say whether its broader investigation of the industry includes Shinola, which also assembles upscale bicycles and sells other goods in Detroit.
Shinola pieces together its watches in a factory on the fifth floor of the A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education in Midtown Detroit. There, over 100 workers in hairnets and watchmaking gowns assemble the timepieces in an intricate process using scores of components that in some instances are so tiny, microscopes are needed. Dozens of other workers produce half of the company's leather watchstraps in nearby rooms.
These quartz movement components — the actual timekeeping elements in a watch — come from Switzerland-based Ronda AG, which has factories in Switzerland and Bangkok, Thailand, and is a shareholder in Shinola's parent company, Bedrock Manufacturing. The dials, hands, crystals and buckles in Shinola watches are all made in China, according to Shinola's website. Only the leather and rubber watchstraps are manufactured in the U.S."

They actually do build them by hand. Anyone who lives or has visited Detroit knows this. Media has covered their Made-In-Detroit story extensively. It may be great marketing but it's an open process that isn't a secret. The company is proud about the build process. These watches are made in Detroit by hand by workers who don't deserve to be disrespected on a deals site.

So I can pay MORE money for something that was built in China instead of having something built in the USA? (Unfortunately shinola cant assemble quartz movements in the US otherwise I'm sure they would)

Also the infantry with dark leather strap and contrast stitching makes it look like it belongs in a Ross or some Kenneth Cole shelf but more power to tasteless people.

While I like the look of Shinola and what they're trying to do, they're overpriced for quartz watches even if they are assembled really well in the US. In most cases, I wouldn't pay more than $150 for a quartz movement.

If you want US manufactured quality watches, Weiss is about as close as you can get. Maybe Shinola will get there one day.
