Shinola has released its first watch in The Great American Series of watches in The Wright Brothers Limited Edition Watch. The Great American Series of watches is an annual release to honour iconic American innovators and industrialists.
The Wright Brothers Limited Edition Watch is just the watch to celebrate the men who pioneered flight. The watch comes in two sizes, 46 mm and 40 mm. Both watches are a limited edition run of only 500 pieces each. Both watches feature a stainless steel case (cushion design) and a bold black dial. The watch comes with a date complication and a cyclops over the date window to enhance its readability.
As with all Shinola watches, this watch will be powered by an in-house quartz Argonite 715 movement. The watch will come fitted with a premium Horween leather strap. The watch will retail for USD 1,000.
The watch will come in a custom gift box and included is a leather-bound coffee table book featuring rare imagery from the Wrights' private collection. Best of all, when you purchase this watch, you will become a member of The Foundry. It is a private collectors club granting you access to events, product reviews and a member-only customer service. How cool is that.
