The Thursday Buy: The Shinola Runwell Automatic Is the Most Versatile Everyday Watch on the Market

Make no mistake, there are any number of the best men’s watches you could select and wear essentially on the daily from Detroit-based Shinola, as many a Shinola review will tell you. For your Brooklyn style writer and Michigan native, they consistently craft some of the best watches for men on the market in a range of accessible styles, be it a rugged dive watch or an investment-level dress watch. But what about if you want a watch that’s a little more toned down, a bit more easygoing and yet still just as ready for everyday wear? That’s when you should consider the Shinola Runwell Automatic 39.5mm, a sized-down version of its Shinola Runwell made for slightly smaller wrists and featuring a refined look and feel, to say the least.

What’s the key with the Shinola Runwell Automatic 39.5mm and why should you make it work for you? It’s got everything going for it that you might expect in one of the best everyday watches, starting with a crisp, retro-yet-modern dial design that wears just as well with a wool winter suit as it does with a pocket tee and your favorite pair of blue jeans come spring. Of course, the automatic movement is a big step forward for the brand, one that makes the Shinola Runwell Automatic 39.5mm noteworthy in its own right.

Best Shinola watch for men.

As you very well might have guessed, the specs on the investment-level Shinola Runwell Automatic 39.5mm (it clocks in at $1,095 at Shinola) are befitting of a handsome, elegant, and next-level everyday watch.

A stellar movement) to keep things ticking along in fine fashion. The Shinola Runwell Automatic 39.5mm looks timeless and sharp, ready to wear to the office with the sleeves of your Oxford shirt rolled up, and then just as at ease on the weekend alongside a rugged shawl cardigan.
