The Watch: Shinola's Blue Runwell Chronograph

The Details: "This watch holds incredible sentimental value. I proposed to my partner recently, and since we are both watch collectors, I opted for exchanging watches rather than engagement rings. I love everything the Shinola brand stands for: rebirth, optimism, equality, and pride in being American made. I feel incredibly connected to these watches and the ethos behind this brand resonates strongly with my own sense of identity and purpose. In terms of styling, it's perfectly comfortable dressed up or dressed down. It's got a larger-than-average, face so I occasionally stack it with a few simple bracelets."
