As an ode to American history, the handcrafted timepiece makers at Shinola created a series of watches to honor iconic innovators who have changed the way we live today. The Great Americans Series debut’s with the Wright Brothers Limited Edition, honoring the pioneers of the aviation industry. Each timepiece comes in a specially crafted hickory watch box with a leather carrying case. As an added gift, you receive a leather bound coffee table book that highlights the background and achievements of the Wright Brothers and also features rare imagery from their private collection.
Coinciding with the release of The Wright Brothers watch, Shinola is building 25 custom bicycles in tandem with the release of the timepiece. A sleek jet-black finish covers and accentuates the details on the custom bicycle. It features the Runwell frame and fork and smooth bamboo fenders. The vintage feel of this Shinola bicycle is complemented by a working headlamp positioned right above the front fender.
The timepiece is available for purchase at either of the Shinola flagship locations in Detroit and New York City and each purchase comes with an exclusive membership to The Foundry, a private collectors club for owners of limited edition Shinola pieces.
