Customer Testimonials

Vortic watch with white dial and brown straps

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 watch on a customers wrist.

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 watch, titanium case with blue strap.

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!

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

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!

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.

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
Customer photos of two watches, worn on two wrists.

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.

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.
