The question isn't why you'd build a watch factory in Detroit, it's why you'd want to see American jobs go anywhere else. Through four Detroit winters, we've been working to bring manufacturing jobs back to Detroit and back to this country. We build our goods to last, but of all the things we make, American jobs might just be the thing we're most proud of. Shinola. Where American is Made.
We're proud to say our watch straps are made in Largo, FL, by Hadley-Roma, an independently-owned company that began handcrafting quality watch straps in 1905. Producing watch straps the right way is a time consuming and labor intensive undertaking—it requires the use of only premium leather, and relies on the skill and focus of talented artisans.
