Shinola has gotten some flack about accuracy in how they describe how and where their movement is made
I followed the story for a while but still wound up not fully understanding what the final word was on this
That said, nice looking, under-stated watches. . . not time-pieces by any means but a nice watch
As of last month, Sinola can no longer claim Made in America. I think they are moving towards assembled in America.
Either way, the company is employing locals (500?) to assembling watches along with other products as well.
As Parcival said, these are a fashion watch ( quartz movements) that clearly have a place within the marketplace.
I wish them well.
My wife bought me a Shinola Filson watch, it is a great everyday watch to have. So far really enjoying it.
