Where Are Shinola Watches Made?

Some might say Shinola is a watch with an identity crisis. To answer the question of where Shinola watches are truly made, we took the screws off a Shinola Runwell watch to get you a view inside. The caseback says Built in Detroit, the case is made in China, the USA movement is assembled in America with Swiss parts from the Ronda movement manufacturer.

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.
