Detroit Watchmaker Investing In People

""We’ve brought in a Swiss group to teach our teams how to build movements and watches," Jacques Panis, president of Shinola, told Circa. "Teach your teams how to do these things, and then ensure that the training can be replicated into more people as these operations scale out."

If they are training Americans with good skills and giving them a future, a career, I can't argue with that.

Have seen some decent watches from them, at least photos of them. Hope they continue to do well despite their shitty name.

You, of all people , a veritable scatological connoisseur, should embrace the name.
