Shinola's Detrola Series

Post by TemerityB » November 13th 2019, 9:18am

The two new editions in Shinola's "Detrola" series: The Penguin (left) and The Burnout. These things retail at $395.

I can only assume this is Shinola's attempt to compete with Swatch or something.

They're 43mm, Argonite 705 quartz movement "with Swiss and other imported parts," resin cases, quick-release straps.

Have never seen one in person but the name is just stupid, as are their prices.

$395? Looks more like something one could find in a plastic wrapper caked in fat and crumbs inside a bag of Cheetos.
