I'm in the market for this new watch. I toured the Shinola factory over two years ago and I was really enamored with the whole thing. So this is not an impulse purchase. I've been thinking about this for awhile. My apprehension is: I am aware that Shinola is owned by Fossil and many people think the 'Detroit Made' marketing is all hype. This very well may be true, but I couldn't help but be personally touched by the whole experience when I visited the factory.
That said, I don't know much about watches and want to make sure I'm really getting a quality look and price/value here. Plus, I haven't found many reviews (at all) about Shinola online. If you'd recommend NOT buying this watch, I'd appreciate if you could recommend an alternative.
What I'm looking for is a basic white, round face with date, larger face, with a leather strap. I'm 30 work in mid-management in a casual office so an everyday, slightly dressed watch in < $600 price range is the target.
Oh and please do not say, Apple Watch.

I'm a girl but I like mechanical chronographs & the like, e.g. the Swiss Army collection. Sadly I don't have $500. What are your favorite watches (mens or non-girlie womens) for under $150?

I'd like to buy a matching pair of black leather wrist cuffs. And I'd like one of the cuffs to work as a watch band. Does this exist? Where can I find it? [more inside]
