Shinola Watches

For those who extol the superiority of Swiss-made watches, prepare for a Detroit-style schooling at the hands of Shinola. (Barneys New York jumped on the brand back in June.) The company is known to sell out of its American-made limited-edition timepieces in a matter of days; each is crafted in a 30,000-square-foot state-of-the-art factory within the College for Creative Studies in the historic Argonaut building, originally a laboratory for General Motors. Shinola’s bicycles, leather goods and journals get our engine running, too. From $550, at Steven Alan (coming soon to Knox), neimanmarcus.com; shinola.com.
