While in NYC a few weeks ago, I stopped by the Shinola store. Have you heard of Shinola? Based in Detroit, they make watches, bicycles and leather goods. Their designs and overall aesthetics are fantastic and some of the best I've seen in years.

I love what they wrote on their website:
Why not accept that manufacturing is gone from this country? Why not let the rust and weeds finish what they started? Why not just embrace the era of disposability? And why didn't we buy a warmer coat before we moved here?
Their store in NYC is in Tribeca, tucked behind a little coffee shop. Every detail in the store is gorgeous.

Each watch comes with it's own wooden box. Strong and functional, yet beautiful. A good description of the box...and the company, too.
