Movement THE ARGONITE 715

This high-accuracy quartz movement—hand-assembled in Detroit with Swiss and other imported parts—drives the hours, minutes, seconds and calendar aperture function with precision.

Case BRUSHED STAINLESS STEEL CASE

This 38mm Canfield features a brushed stainless steel case with polished coin edge details, a classic pumpkin crown and double-domed sapphire crystal. Sapphire is second only to the diamond in hardness, helping protect the watch from scratches. While there are multiple elements that make this watch beautiful, the highlight of the case is actually the caseback. It honors the famous architect’s design philosophy with graphic metallic elements that shine on an alabaster backdrop under a sapphire crystal plate.

Dial BLACK MINERAL-TEXTURED DIAL

The centerpiece of this timepiece is a black mineral-textured dial decorated with applied matte alabaster Arabic numerals, matte alabaster hands with contrasting black fill and a special printed Yamasaki logo.

Strap BLACK LEATHER STRAP

This premium leather strap in black is the perfect complement to this timepiece. It's designed to be clean and modern with no stitching visible. The strap is also removable, making the timepiece customizable with the purchase of an additional strap. Shinola leather straps are cut and sewn in America.
Quick Release: Fitted with quick release pins, this strap is easy to change. No tools required. Watch the tutorial here.

Packaging An Architectural Vision
