Shinola has finally managed to produce a mechanical automatic version of its signature Runwell collection using imported Swiss Sellita movements in watches assembled in Detroit.

The first models hit stores in April, priced at $1,095 on a leather strap or $1,295 on a steel bracelet.

They come in 39.5mm or 45mm cases with domed sapphire crystal front and back. The back has a small portal giving a glimpse at the Selita SW200-1’s oscillator.
