You’ll understand when it’s older

The Guardian is crafted to last. Though its quality is evident from the first time you fasten the stainless steel buckle, you need time to appreciate the integrity of this timepiece fully. Maybe give it a decade, or four. The midnight blue dial has a brilliant sunray finish accentuated by applied Arabic numerals in rose gold. The stainless steel case features a unique rounded square shape, pumpkin crown, and sapphire crystal. A smooth and sophisticated strap of dark cognac leather completes the classic look you’ll enjoy for years to come.

Movement The Argonite 705 is a force

The high-accuracy quartz movement — hand-assembled in Detroit with 43 components — drives the hours, minutes, seconds and date function with precision. It is built in Detroit with Swiss and imported parts.

Case Soft Rounded Edges

Quality takes a new shape in The Guardian. The distinct case is built from polished stainless steel and includes a classic pumpkin crown and sapphire crystal. Sapphire is second only to the diamond in hardness and much more durable than mineral glass when it comes to protecting the watch from scratches.

Dial A beautiful face

Applied Arabic numerals accentuate this elegant Midnight Blue dial with sunray finish and Super-LumiNova hands.

Strap Dark Cognac Leather

Smooth and sophisticated, this strap is cut and sewn in America and is removable and customizable with the purchase of an additional strap.

Packaging Arrives in a cherry box

Built from strong cherry wood, every Shinola watch box is designed to last for generations.
