The special-edition Runwell Field Watch, or RFW, is a timepiece that celebrates the Motor City’s innovation, can-do spirit, and military grit during the Second World War—and the indelible difference it made in history.
The RFW’s carbide coated Stainless steel case is six times harder, for an extra durable and scratch resistant watch. With an enhanced depth rating of 10 ATM, this rugged watch can take just about anything you throw at it. The simple, utilitarian dial features thick printed luminous numbers and indices with a white outline —and the crystal has an anti-reflective coating for extra visibility. The new quick release nylon watch strap is also a utilitarian element of this durable watch: thicker with a heavier weight, it’s more rugged, and its square weave makes it distinct from any other Shinola nylon watch strap. It’s the kind of highly-durable, scratch-resistant, everyday watch you want on your wrist whether you’re scouting the great outdoors or rolling up your sleeves and getting the job done.

DIAL: Black with Super-LumiNova hands, Arabic numerals, and hour markers.
FUNCTIONS: Hours, minutes, seconds.
