  • The Process

    Shinola leather is produced in one of America’s longest-running tanneries—Horween, a family-owned company founded over a century ago by Isidore Horween in Chicago, Illinois. The Horween tanning process still uses many of the same hand-based techniques the company has used from the very beginning. Although these techniques demand a highly-skilled team of craftspeople, and the process overall costs more and takes longer than conventionally-produced leather, the end result is the same it’s been since the company’s founding—an exceptional leather of renowned quality, apparent in its color, texture, and the beautiful character it develops over time.

    Balance Spring

    Also referred to as a “hair spring” because of its thinness, the balance spring swings the balance wheel back and forth to regulate accurate time in a mechanical watch. Read More

    Balance Wheel

    Similar to a pendulum, the balance wheel in a mechanical watch oscillates at a steady pace to divide and regulate time in even units. The balance wheel is moved by the mainspring at its center, and drives the escapement. Read More


    The cylinder that holds the watches mainspring. The barrel uses a toothed rim to drive the train. Some watches feature double barrels to maximize power reserves. Read More


    The ring (often made of steel) that encircles the watch face and secures the crystal to the watch. Some bezels provide additional function. See “Turning Top-ring Bezel.” Read More

    Bi-Directional Rotating Bezel

    The ring that surrounds the watch dial, often referred to as a “rotating bezel,” a bi-directional rotationg bezel is turned clockwise or counter clockwise to track elapsed time and to make mathematical calculations. Read More


    A metal watchband with removable links for sizing. Read More


    Mounts fixed to the main plate that form the frame of the watch movement. Read More


    The calendar is a complication that shows the date, and sometimes the days and months the year. Less common perpetual calendars account for varying month lengths and leap year cycles. Read More


    Sometimes spelled “calibre,” a caliber is a letter and number combination code that typically denotes the manufacturer and movement type of a watch. Read More


    Sometimes referred to as the “body” of the watch, the case, typically made of metal, houses all the mechanical and display components. Read More


    The reverse side of a watch case that lies against the skin. Affixed to the case back with four rivets, the iconic Shinola case back plate displays manufacturing information, such as a laser-etched serial number. Read More


    A watch with stopwatch function to measure elapsed time while continuing to display conventional time, often using independent subdials operated by start, stop and reset push-pieces. Read More


    A complication is any watch feature that indicates more than the basic time, such as dates, chronographs, moon dials, etc. Read More


    The knob on the outside of the watch for setting the time and date, and, in some cases, for winding the mainspring. Many Shinola watches feature a screw-down for added water resistance. Read More


    The protective, transparent cover that sits over the watch dial, protecting the watch from external elements. All Shinola watches feature premium, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, as opposed to glass, acrylic, plastic or quartz. Read More

    Day/Date Watch

    A watch with a complication that displays both the day of the week and the day of the month. Read More

    Deployant Buckle

    A buckle, typically part of a metal bracelet, that opens and clasps shut on hinges. Sometimes referred to as a “foldover buckle” or “deployment clasp,” a deployant buckle is designed to slide simply onto the wrist when open, and to secure the watch to the wrist when closed. Read More


    The dial, or the watch “face,” features the numbers, indices and markers that indicate time based on the position of the hands. Read More

    Dual Timer

    A watch that simultaneously measures time in more than one time zone, via either extra hands or subdials. Dual timer watches are often used by frequent world travelers. Read More


    The "face", or the watch dial, features the numbers, indices and markers that indicate time based on the position of the hands. Read More


    The gasket resists against water by sealing the caseback, crystal and crown. Read More

    Gear Train

    A watch’s gear system that transfers power from a mainspring in a mechanical movement, or battery in a quartz movement, to the hands. Read More

    Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

    The international time standard measured at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. In watchmaking, GMT refers to timepieces that feature a 24-hour dial and display multiple time zones. GMT watches are often used by pilots and associated with those who travel. Read More


    The science of measuring time, including watchmaking and clock making. Read More


    A line on the dial of an analog watch that marks the hour in place of numbers. Read More


    A ruby or synthetic ruby that acts as a bearing to reduce friction and maintain the accuracy of a watch. Jewels surround the tips of the gears to keep them separated from components such as bridges and plates. Read More


    Part of the watch case to which watch straps and bracelets attach. Read More

    Main Plate

    The primary component to which all other movement components are attached. Also referred to as the “base plate.” Read More


    Housed in the barrel, the mainspring is a coiled spring that, when wound, stores energy and drives the gear train of a watch. Read More

    Moon Phase

    A complication that tracks lunar phases over the course of a month, from waxing to full to waning. Displayed by a lunar disc in the dial that moves through its cycle every 29.5 days. Read More


    The interior of a freshwater mollusk shell, often used on watch dials and jewelry for its luster and creamy iridescent white, blue and pink colors. Read More


    The movement is the inner motor of the watch that moves the hands and date. Movement types include mechanical automatic, mechanical manual-wind and quartz. Shinola Argonite quartz movements are hand assembled with Swiss parts in Detroit. Read More


    The button that operates mechanisms such as chronograph stopwatch function. Read More

    Quartz Crystal

    A small piece of synthetic quartz that oscillates at 32,768 times a second, providing a reliable beat that can be turned into electrical impulses via circuitry to provide a highly accurate mechanical pulse to drive timekeeping devices. Read More

    Quartz Movement

    A watch movement in which a battery passes an electric current though a quartz crystal to keep it oscillating. In turn, electrical pulses derived from those oscillations drive the motor that moves the watches hands, keeping precise time. Read More
