Ok, I know I’ve been throwing you a lot of men’s style stuff the past few days. Let me make it up to you and talk about a watch that was just announced earlier today – the Shinola Canfield Sport.
Ok, so no surprise that I’m talking about Shinola, right? I mean, they’re calling my old hometown home now, and I like to see ol’ Detroit doing well. Past that, I like the watches being created. Not everyone is precisely my jam, but I think the designs have an overall language that works together nicely.
Now, with the Shinola Canfield Sport, you might be surprised that I’m covering it, as it’s a chronograph. And I’m generally, well, anti-chronograph. I would say that I still am, for the most part, but I can see the allure here on this watch. For me, I like that, even though it’s a tri-compax layout, it’s the upper two registers (only) that are indented, which gives things a slightly off-kilter look. In some watches, that kills things for me, but here, I dig it.
As you can see by the full gallery down below, the Shinola Canfield Sport is being released in a variety of styles, and even in two sizes. The 40mm model will be powered by the Argonite 5040.D movement, while the 45mm gets the most-complex movement Shinola has assembled, the Argonite 5040.F (which also brings along a day-date complication, and outer ring date indication).
While the 45mm Shinola Canfield Sport may be the more technically advanced model, I find myself drawn to the more compact 40mm version – and, in fact, we’ll have one of those in for review in a little bit (so expect more on that later). For now, we’ve got these images, and of course pricing details. Pricing for the Shinola Canfield Sport starts at $850, and tops out at $1,100 for the 45mm model on the steel bracelet. shinola.com
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
