Audio

There was a time when building watches
in Detroit seemed like a crazy idea too.

In 2012 we set out to build the first watch factory in Detroit and to create jobs by doing
so. Today we achieved that goal and have since opened a leather factory, employing
over 200 individuals in manufacturing through that effort. To further our mission, we
embarked on a journey into the audio category, starting with a turntable. As we
introduce each new category we gain further traction in reaching our goal of creating
more jobs. First came the Runwell watch and bicycle, then the Runwell backpack
and now we bring you the latest in our growing family of products...

Introducing The

Runwell Turntable

Shinola Turntable

This turntable is the result of over a year of close partnership between Shinola and
some of the best American minds in audio. The Shinola Audio team, under the leadership of
Alex Rosson, designed and engineered every detail with legendary American turntable maker
VPI. Shinola Watches and Turntables are built in the USA from US and imported parts.
