The MD-80 airplane, also known as the Super 80 and Mad Dog, was the workhorse of the American Airlines fleet throughout the 1980’s and beyond. When introduced, the Mad Dog was one of the most fuel-efficient commercial airplanes in the sky due in part to its iconic polished aluminum skin, and its retirement marked the end of an iconic era in American Airlines’ history.

Shinola has been given the honor of capturing a piece of that history. Original MD-80 aluminum paneling has been harvested and repurposed into one-of-a-kind limited edition Shinola Runwell desk clock dials and ID plates.

Assembled in our Detroit watch factory, this desk clock is built with a durable chrome casing and fastened with a caseback plate that displays an individualized serial number.

RECLAIMED MD-80 ALUMINUM SKIN

TIME FLIES

With a smooth, elegant continuous sweep movement, a quick glance at the clock will never feel long enough. The reflective dial features raised Arabic indices and luminous hands.

LASER ETCHED PLAQUE

This Runwell MD-80 Desk Clock nests in a black oak stand customized with a reclaimed MD-80 aluminum plaque that commemorates the career of the Mad Dog.
