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.
