Shinola’s Newest Watch Is a Handsome, Minimalist Special Edition

This special Canfield honors Minoru Yamasaki’s architectural legacy in the form of a 38mm, black-dialed quartz watch.


An entry in their Great American Series, Shinola’s newest Canfield watch celebrates the architecture of Minoru Yamasaki, including the McGregor Memorial Conference Center and One Woodward buildings in Shinola’s home base of Detroit. (Yamasaki may be most well known for his design of the World Trade Center.)

Featuring a 38mm stainless steel case with double-domed sapphire crystal, a black mineral-texture dial with alabaster-colored Arabic numerals and hands, a black date wheel, the Argonite 715 quartz movement and black quick-release leather strap, the Yamasaki limited edition is restrained and well-proportioned, much like Yamasaki’s “New Formalism” style of architecture.

A limited edition that ships in a collectible wooden box, the Yamasaki costs $1,000 — not inexpensive for a quartz watch, though the presentation box helps make for an attractive gift, especially for fans of architecture and design.
