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 in Detroit with Swiss and other imported parts.
As makers of modern men’s watches, we stand for skill at scale, the preservation of craft and the beauty of industry
Before building the first watches for men in Detroit, we had to build the first watch factory in Detroit. We chose this city because it’s home to a community that knows how to make things and—with a manufacturing legacy that spans over a decade—knows how to make them well. The creation of each of our men’s watches is an entirely handcrafted process. From building our own watch movements to final assembly, and a factory that adheres to the highest Swiss quality standards, Shinola watches for men are crafted with the utmost care and precision.
