Shinola continues to build on its impressive line of timepieces with the Canfield Sport. The chronograph series features two movements, one of which is the Detroit-based company's most complex to date — the quartz Argonite 5040.F.

Built using a top loaded case construction, this 45mm timepiece features sandblasted gunmetal-toned PVD details, a cool gray dial and natural brown leather strap that's certain to develop a rich patina over time.
