Who we are
Vortic Watch Company's American Artisan Series features salvaged and restored antique American pocket watches expertly preserved into one-of-a-kind wristwatches.
We are one of the only wristwatch manufacturing companies in the United States and build these timepieces by hand in Fort Collins, Colorado.
What We Do
The American Artisan Series
Since it's difficult to find and restore the antique American pocket watches, we can only make a few hundred watches each year. For this reason, we have our Watch of the Day program. Visit our store daily to see a new and unique piece. Don't wait too long though, as they sell quickly and there's only one of each!
Convert Your Watch
The first question we always get is: "what if I have a pocket watch from my Grandfather?"
If you already own a pocket watch and are considering converting it into a wristwatch, we can help! In fact, we're the only company that can expertly preserve your family heirloom pocket watch into a wristwatch.
Colorado Watch Company
Our new sister brand, Colorado Watch Company is live on Kickstarter and accepting pre-orders now! Don't miss the debut of our new fully modern watches featuring American-assembled automatic movements starting at less than $1,000!
Absolutely stunning watch. I had researched online for months. After seeing the watches in person at the Fountain Hills festival I knew I had to have one. The Boston 472 was made in 1924, the year my grandfather was born in Boston so it was meant to be. The compliments have been pouring in, and I’m already eyeing my next timepiece from Vortic!
I purchased two of the Military 5th Editions. I gave one to my brother who is a US Navy veteran as an early Christmas present, and I kept one for myself. He loved the watch and was very moved by the history and provenance of the watch. He switched the watch strap to the military canvas strap. I kept the black strap with red stitching. I liked that this model had the seconds hand painted red as well as the detail tool work on the four corners of the watch. I really like that the watch is wound at the 12 o clock. The presentation was very cool as well.
Highly recommend to anyone that wants a unique piece of American history and a beautiful watch, representing American craftsmanship and ingenuity.
As soon as I saw the 2023 design, I knew that I needed take a shot at getting one. I set an alarm so I was ready to respond as soon as the email went out. I have worn it everyday since receiving the watch and it has worked like "clockwork". I multi-metal case and housing is very sharp. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Congrats to the Vortic team for their superior craftmenship and efforts around this watch.
What a pleasure. Must admit it was a rebound purchase when I failed to secure one of the Special Edition Military watches this year. That said it's a beautiful piece. A beautifully restored American antique pocket watch repackaged into a modern wrist watch. So much more meaningful that an expensive Swiss gadget.
I can’t say enough about the craftsmanship and overall aesthetics of the watch. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. It definitely is a conversation piece every time I wear it. The team at Vortic never ceases to amaze me. I hope to buy myself another one soon.
A beautiful piece of American history. And despite the fact that it is 100 years old, it still keeps excellent time. Over the first 10 days it lost no time compared to my phone. Fantastic craftsmanship from the vortic team, as well as the heritage movement, not to mention the lovely shell cordovan band.
I just found out about Vortic a couple months. I have a few watches in my collection, this is by far my favorite now. The history, the mechanical feel, hearing it tick… I love it!
I am very happy because I own one of these living antiques, some of which have completed 100 years, as if you were putting history on your wrist.
I live in Rockford, Illinois. I have been looking for a Rockford watch for some time and recently purchased a 45 mm watch from 1912. Finding this watch was truly a treat. The dial and casing is top notch and the band is very well made and comfortable. As a watch collector, and as someone who owns another Vortic, I am a very pleased repeat customer.
I think watchs like this with painting are beter than the others
Amazing watch! It's very stylish but doesn't look to flashy. Going to add a clasp to save some wear and tear on the strap.
Handsome, soft, and American made. This strap complements the classic look of the vortic watch perfectly. And it fits my enormous wrist. Bonus.
I’ve had my watch almost 3 years. With a 100 year old time piece you need to understand there will be bumps. About a year or two in the winding wasn’t as good but they serviced it and it works great. My daily wear for sure and a great conversation piece.
I love this smaller size Vortic Watch to add to my collection! I am thrilled to have the first batch of The Victory Watch series. Not only does the watch history, of each watch, interest me but now we have the history behind The Victory Watch series. See the Vortic Website for details!
Very happy w/ Military Wach! … It is a large watch but sits well on your wrist and frankly “is just really neat”! My father was in Army Air Corp in WWII, not a pilot, but was a maintenance / mechanic for B-29 bombers serving on Tinian & Saipan while the US bombed Japan. Great customer service from Vortic and great product.
