A watch is a status symbol because it's always visible - when you take change from the cashier, or pull your phone out of your pocket, your wrist piece will be in full sight. It's key, then, to have a few different watches you can keep in rotation, so you don't end up wearing the same hefty, custom gold (plated, don't front), time ticker that kind of makes you like a Milanese rapper. 

Try Detroit-based brand Shinola's classic take, the Runwell. This stainless steel-cased watch, handmade in the Michigan city, presents a classic face and a leather strap in either black or orange. It also comes with a small pot of balm to keep the shine on your piece looking fresh.
