Everything You Need to Know about Shinola Runwell Watches
April 6th, 2020
The Runwell Collection
Looking at the Runwell watch design, there’s no question its style is a nod to the watches your fathers and grandfathers wore. The difference is in the design quality and its engineering craftsmanship. In other words, these watches may look retro, but they don’t operate that way. Shinola is so confident with its metal watches’ quality that the company offers a “guaranteed for life” warranty.
Assembled in Detroit, USA
Hand-assembled isn’t a word that consumers hear very often today when it comes to the products they buy. But Shinola watches are not only hand-assembled in Detroit, they are also carefully inspected to ensure the quality of workmanship is of the highest caliber.
Watch assemblers undergo training through the company’s Swiss partner, Ronda AG, the company that also provides the movement components for Shinola watches. Your purchase of a Shinola watch is the result of a 30-step assembly process, with each step completed by a different, highly trained member of the team.
Runwells Are Repairable Watches
One of the best features of a non-digital quartz or mechanical watch is that they are repairable. Even watches constructed with a high level of workmanship require maintenance and, occasionally, a new battery. Shinola advises that watch owners take Runwells into a qualified jeweler or watch repair expert every two to three years for service. This ensures a long service life. To find authorized service sites in the Lansing area, search for “Shinola watch repairs near me.”
The hand-assembled, 85-component quartz movement—the Shinola Argonite Quartz movement—is used in the Runwell and other Shinola watches. It’s what makes these watches so precisely accurate and also offer incredibly smooth operation. This movement controls not only the hour, minute, and second hands, but the calendar aperture as well. Some models also feature a chronograph, which can be used as a stopwatch.
Shinola specializes in leather products, so it should be no surprise that consumers can choose to purchase a Runwell with a premium leather strap in both men’s and women’s watch styles. Shinola takes that a step further by making the strap change an uncomplicated, customizable affair, no tools required. Quick-release pins make it so you can purchase a variety of bands in a wide array of colors and change them out as you wish to suit your mood or your attire.
