Customer Testimonials

Vortic Testimonial

The communication throughout the process was extraordinary. After receiving the watch in the mail, I was surprised to see the watch somehow looked better in person than it did in the photos. I didn't think that would be possible!

Mark from Massachusetts
Vortic Testimonial

I’m in love with my new watch…and I’m in love with Vortic. The quality is amazing and I enjoyed working with the team. I can’t stop looking at it and I can’t stop talking about it. I absolutely love everything about it. They turned my grandfather's timepiece into my masterpiece.

Brent from Massachusetts
Vortic Testimonial

The watch is much lighter than I imagined. The skeleton back is amazing and the packaging was perfect. To honor the past with details like this is truly impressive. Overall I love the timepiece and already want another one!

Brad from Florida
Vortic Testimonial

I can't speak highly enough of my experience Vortic. The passion of the team has been obvious and the professionalism top notch. They even engraved my son's name and birthday on the back to complete an already unbelievable product.

Scott from Colorado
Vortic Testimonial

The packaging and presentation was just about as beautiful and distinct as the watch contained therein. It really exceeded expectations. It looks like it would have been right at home on the wrist of Indiana Jones! This is a showpiece as much as it is as unique timepiece!

John from Indiana
Vortic Testimonial

My recent masterpiece has been received. I own so called "high end" watches such as Rolex, Panerai, and Zenith but they pale in comparison to my 2 Vortic models which I wear everyday to work. The others remain in their boxes with dust accumulation.

Todd from Ohio
Vortic Testimonial

My Springfield watch greatly exceeded my expectations. The process of getting this work of art was outstanding, from the original order and updates during production through the delivery and follow-up consultation. I'm already trying to justify a second Vortic watch.

Steve from Massachusetts
Vortic Testimonial

I recently received two Vortic watches that I ordered and there is not enough I can say, we absolutely love them. The watches are magnificent! When we opened the shipping box there were two boxes sealed with wax with his and hers tags. Beautifully done.

William from Washington
Vortic Testimonial

This is a very impressive watch. I am very pleased with my purchase. I've worked in customer service my entire career and I can tell you it means a lot to have this level of personal communication.

How To Open A Pocket Watch

How To Open A Pocket Watch

We get a lot of questions about how to open pocket watches so we thought we'd share a quick step-by-step guide. At Vortic Watch Company, one of the most common things we do is convert family heirlooms and other antique American pocket watches into custom wristwatches. 

The first thing we need to know before converting a pocket watch is where it came from and what specs it has. The only way to do this is by looking at the actual mechanism hidden behind the back cover of most pocket watches.

The Map of the Great American Watch Companies

The Map of the Great American Watch Companies

In an effort to do whatever we can, we partnered with the museum to create our map of the 10 Great American Watch Companies. If you love the history of watches like we do, you can also support the preservation of this organization by purchasing one! The proceeds from sales of these maps on our website go toward this fundraising effort. It is an honor and our pleasure to help secure the future of this great American treasure.
