From this Brooklyn writer’s point of view, there are assuredly small style essentials that go a long way towards upgrading your overall look. Have you ever heard the adage that people notice both your shoes and your watch first? Well, make that first impression a great one: Get one of the best men’s watches — the Shinola Canfield Sport Watch — and wait for the compliments to roll in. But why Shinola, and why now? I’m glad you asked, my friend. A quick history lesson: The Shinola Canfield Sport Watch is so named for the West Canfield Historic District in Detroit. Not bad at all! Now, this certainly won’t be the last time you hear about the Detroit-based maker of watches and leather goods this season and beyond, so let’s step forward into the future on time and in style. For starters, Shinola makes some of the best accessories for men (and women!) on the market, striking a tricky balance between premium, refined style, rugged appeal and fine, precise craftsmanship. The Shinola Canfield Sport Watch is a prime example of that dedication, with well-made details any watch lover will appreciate, and plenty of style points regardless, particularly if you’re just tipping your toe into the world of men’s watches.
What’s a chronograph watch, for starters? A chronograph watch features sub-dials within the main watch dial. Here’s the kicker: As the main dial tracks the time itself, and the three chronograph dials (on the Shinola Canfield Sport Watch in particular) can be used to track details like one-tenth of a second, as well as minutes or hours. It’s an added bit of functionality that’s made watches like the Shinola Canfield Sport Watch prized for their utility in travel, road racing (or road trips) and more. At the end of the day, all Shinola men’s watches perform readily under pressure and look mighty stylish either way. It only gets better from there.
The Shinola Canfield Sport Watch is especially well-suited for fall and winter because it’s built to handle just about anything. Unlike a NATO strap watch, typically worn during summer and often featuring a smaller-size case diameter (as NATO strap watches are often made for the field), a timepiece like the handsome Shinola Canfield Sport Watch features a larger 45mm dial diameter. This means that the watch is going to stand up stylistically to the more rugged, burlier fall style essentials you’re wearing, from a thermal henley and flannel shirt to your favorite waxed trucker jacket and a tough denim shirt. Yes indeed, the Shinola Canfield Sport Watch simply is firing on all cylinders.
Naturally, the Shinola Canfield Sport Watch is also dressy enough to be worn in business casual situations, especially with one of the best men’s Oxford shirts, sleeves rolled up, this fall and beyond. There are several varieties of the Canfield watch, but the blend of a rich cognac leather strap and a cool-as-can-be black dial is pretty inviting, is it not? Pick up any version of the Shinola Canfield Sport Watch, and wear it as often as possible: You won’t be disappointed in matters of style or versatility.
