We’ll be keeping an eye on this new site from designer and developer Matt Johnston. He has started a project exploring the aspects of watch design with a smart and simple website he’s calling Wrist. Taking a page from Windows of New York, Johnston's goal is to illustrate and animate one watch every other week, all the while playing with typography, color, and animation.

Already on the site are watches from Timex and From Us With Love, but we can think of dozens of different watches that we’d like to see Johnston mock up. Side note: The animation didn't work on our Safari browser, but did work on Chrome.

Visit Wrist to get your bi-weekly dose of beautifully animated watches.

Hot off the heels from opening a new flagship store in New York, Shinola has new wrist candy available online, including a limited restock of the Runwell 47mm and new stainless steel styles of its little brother, the 41mm. 

The company, also known for its leather goods and American-made bikes, is building timepieces from Swiss components right in the heart of Detroit, in hopes to bring high-end craft and manufacturing back to the United States. 

Stock goes quick so you better head over and act fast before it’s all gone.

Visit Shinola for more on Detroit-made goods.
