Detroit based Shinola is paying homage to the Wright Brothers with a limited-edition timepiece and bicycle. The limited editions are the first pieces in the “Great Americans Series,” which is dedicated to American visionaries and industrial pioneers. The limited edition watches are based on the Shinola Brakeman timepieces, featuring a stainless steel case, black dial with orange accents and white indexes, a sapphire crystal, Argonite 715 quartz movement, and a chocolate brown leather strap. Priced at $1,000 the watch is available in 40mm and 46mm sizes, each limited to 500 individually numbered pieces. Each timepiece comes in a special custom gift box and a leather-bound coffee table book of photography from the Wrights’ private collection.
Accompanying the timepiece is the Wright Brothers Limited Edition Bicycle, which features The Runwell frame and fork with a jet-black finish, sleek bamboo fenders, and a bright headlamp. Shinola produced only 25 bicycles, and they’ll retail for $2,950 each. The Wright Brothers Limited Edition Watch and Bicycle are available for purchase on Shinola.com, and at the Shinola flagship stores in Detroit and New York City.
