This season we welcome a highly acclaimed brand to the Due West family. Shinola, proudly made in Detroit, is dedicated to producing American-made products, including watches, bicycles, leather goods, and journals of the highest possible quality. While best known for their handmade watches, the company actually has a longer history with leather, having made shoe polish decades ago.
Arriving soon in store and online at Due West, you can look forward to a selection of leather bags, journals, and truly exceptional watches. The workers hand-build each timepiece, meticulously seating and fitting together as many as 100 parts per watch — including the Detroit-built movement made with Swiss parts — until they meet the final, one-person quality test, creating lasting products that rival their European counterparts in quality yet display a strength that's unique to the place in which they're built. America.
