Henry Ford pocket watchDetroit watch manufacturer Shinola is making a series of timepieces inspired by American innovators – and this is the second, influenced by Henry Ford. 

It features a polished stainless steel case and, naturally, you can have the dial in any colour as long as it’s black.

The numbers are finished in a tradition cream colour, and the limited edition number is printed on the back of the watch. In contrast to the mass production methods pioneered by Ford, just 1,000 are being made.

It comes with a metal chain and leather fob, as well as a wooden stand, leather pouch and custom gift box. You wouldn’t get that from Argos.

Prices? Well, if you have to ask…
