This limited edition 45mm Runwell Automatic is Shinola's homage to the greatest athlete in the world: 1912 Olympic Gold Medalist Jim Thorpe. To reflect his legacy, the Jim Thorpe Runwell Automatic features the colors not only of his Olympic fame, but of his longtime team, the Canton Bulldogs. The exhibition case back window, with custom enamel detailing, reveals the powerful movement at work. A supple, padded strap pays homage to vintage footballs.
