    Ell oh ell... I didn't wanna say anything but I thought that looked a little off (check out how the bracelet connects at the top lugs).

    My Monday through Thursday watch. Scratched to hell and dirty but puts a smile on my face.

    Detroit native here. Rose gold Shinola Chronograph. Wasn't sure if I wanted to give them a shot but I'm glad I did. They have high quality leather goods as well. Anyone have anything from them? I know it's a quartz movement but components are still Swiss and assembled in Detroit

    That's what initially made me suspicious as well, and the date window seemed fishy as well. Easy enough to google and find older stock photos direct from Breitling.

    I've held my tongue on a few homages, even if I don't really agree with the concept (but respect that others disagree with my opinion), but I'll put my foot down on fakes. There are plenty of watches that stand on their own for the same price you can buy those fakes for. IMO, it's much more respectable to wear a real, affordable than to wear a fake you can't afford.

    Yeah, needed the photos to figure that out (along with the crown/pushers also being off), as I'm not that familiar with Breitlings.

    Like you said, hopefully they didn't pay too much for that thing...

    Shinola gets a bad reputation from a lot of WIS, but that is a really nice looking watch.

    I own a Shinola. Was it hella overpriced? Yes. Would I have bought it if I weren't trying to help my friend meet a big sales goal? Maybe not. Is it a really nice, solid, attractive watch? Yep.



    I've seen a few Shinolas on sale in Nordstrom Rack that are good deals, IMO. I came close to buying a little gold 36mm three-hander actually.
