If you watch a lot of old movies or TV shows, you are doubtlessly familiar with the trope of the train conductor, checking his pocket watch and announcing the last call for passengers. Someone at Detroit timepiece brand Shinola is familiar, too, since it’s the inspiration for the new Shinola Canfield Cannonball.
This revamp of the Shinola Canfield watch is inspired by “the early railroad as a force that shaped American music forever,” and so the Shinola Canfield Cannonball comes in a deluxe box set that also includes a 45-RPM record of the traditional train-folk song “The Wabash Cannonball.” As for the watch itself, it houses a 46-component Argonite 1069 quartz hacking movement inside a 43mm stainless steel case with double-curve sapphire crystal, plus a railroad visual motif seen on the dial.
The Shinola Canfield Cannonball will be limited to just 1,000 pieces sold, each one with a corresponding $1,000 price tag. For more information on the watch, or to order one for yourself, check it out at the Shinola online store right here.
