Shinola and Filson are expanding upon their partnership announced earlier this year. While Filson is famous for its rugged, American-made goods, they tapped Shinola to build their first line of watches.
Now they’re introducing this new collection of watches called “The Scout”. The full product family consists of seven watches, including two case designs and 25 different styles as well as models with either a 3-hand date or dual-time complication. All these are inspired by the classic pilots’ watch. All watches are made by hand in Shinola’s watch factory.
The dual-time model seen here illustrates the design language of the new line, with a large black PVD-coated stainless-steel case and a large dial to ensure optimum legibility which creates a more modern look. Additional design details recall some of the more iconic military pilots’ watches of the 20th century.
Both the 43mm Mackinaw Field Watch and 44mm Journeyman Watch are available in multiple colors with multiple strap options.
Each “The Scout” watch also boasts Shinola Argonite quartz movements (the Argonite 4220), curved, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal faces, and brass case backs bearing the Filson logo.
The new models will be available in Fall 2015 and can be preordered on the Filson website.
