Shinola: Why I Wouldn't Buy Their Watches

In this Video I discuss Shinola Watches and why I personally would not buy one. These are just my own opinions and views on the brand. If you are thinking of buying a Shinola please do your own research and come to a decision yourself. I have included all the references and quotes I used below. Shinola Video Research Links https://www.inc.com/magazine/201604/stacy-perman/shinola-watch-history-manufacturing-heritage-brand.html http://www.businessinsider.com/the-real-story-behind-shinola-detroit-2016-5 Forbes: The Story Behind 'Built In Detroit' Shinola Watches https://www.forbes.com/sites/arieladams/2013/05/16/the-story-behind-built-in-detroit-shinola-watches/#525f576b4e67 Hodinkee: FTC Takes Action Against Shinola, Suggests 'Where American Is Made' Slogan Be Dropped https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/ftc-takes-major-action-against-shinola-demands-where-american-is-made-slogan-to-be-dropped-immediately Federal Trade commission ruling https://www.ftc.gov/system/files/documents/closing_letters/nid/160616musabedrockletter.pdf Shinola Video Quotes Used “Perhaps most audacious, though, was using Detroit's economic peril as an opportunity to amplify Shinola's message.” - inc.com “Shinola partnered with Ronda AG, a Swiss maker of watch movements, and Taiwan-based dial manufacturer BAT Ltd. Both foreign companies provided components and trained Shinola's workers.” - inc.com “People were willing to pay the Detroit-made premium” - inc.com "Shinola is, and always has been, a job-creation vehicle, and our intention is to create jobs in this city we now call home," Shinola President Jacques Panis - Business Insider “Kartsotis and the other early members of Shinola had no previous ties to Detroit before starting the company there” - Business Insider “Shinola watches retail at $475 to $1,125, while quartz watches made by Skagen and Fossil hover close to $100. Some of the higher costs of manufacturing in the US are most likely baked into that premium, along with the high-quality materials Shinola uses, but "compared to some of the other products out there, they're definitely charging a premium," Ariel Adams, founder of the blog aBlogtoWatch, - Detroit Free Press.” “Swiss Made” and “Made in Germany” do not require 100% of the watch to be made in country. “Made in USA” requires every component in the watch, including the movement, to be actually manufactured in the USA. - Hodinkee “In this case, the Company sources significant inputs to many of its products overseas. For example, 100% of the cost of materials used to make certain watches is attributable to imported materials.” - Federal Trade Commission "certain materials presented to us during the pendency of our investigation raise concerns that Bedrock may make deceptive U.S.- origin claims in the future. Therefore, we will continue to monitor the Company's advertising closely." - Federal Trade Commission Check out The Casual Watch Reviewer Store on Amazon to get hold of the items I review and some great finds.
