Shinola Watches: Made in USA, Swiss, or China? (youtube link)
In this episode of Movement Monday by #KeepTheTime, we took the screws off a #Shinola Runwell watch to get you a view inside. The case is made in China, the #USA movement is assembled in America with Swiss parts from the Ronda movement manufacturer. Please leave your comments below!
#MovementMonday: We’ll try to post a new movement for you every Monday morning. We’ll open them up and get the macro inspection for about a minute or two (really it should be called Macro Movement Monday, but that’s too long). Subscribe to KeepTheTime and see what makes your timepiece tick!
The Shinola Argonite 1069 (aka Ronda 1069) is a quartz movement powered by a battery cell number 321. The battery is supposed to last about 25 months. It measures 15.3mm x 17.8mm and is 2.30mm thick. This movement was found in Shinola’s 41mm Runwell model. This version of the 1069 movement has 6 jewels, however there is also a 2 jewels version that is Nickel plated with Swiss parts.
