Lately we’ve started to get the itch for a new watch.  This time we’re looking for something a bit different, not an every day wear, but still something that can see the light of day a couple of times a week without issue.  We’ve looked at everything from Apple watches to Swatches, but we have a feeling the Gold/Midnight Blue Runwell Chrono from Shinola might end up being the direction we go.

Truth be told, we’ve shied away from gold watches for quite some time, but the Midnight Blue face on this handsome chrono subdues the bling a little bit for an overall appearance that we absolutely love.  Powered by Shinola’s Detroit-built Argonite 5021 movement, this version of the Runwell features a 41mm case that falls perfectly in the “not too big, not too small” category.  Pair that with a Horween leather strap, and you have a watch that should look just as good with jeans and a t-shirt as it does khakis and an oxford.
