Watch Description

The Boston 374 is the 374th one-of-a-kind piece in Vortic's "Boston" line of the American Artisan Series. This watch contains the original movement (timepiece), dial (face), and hands from a vintage (1880’s – 1950’s) pocket watch. The American Artisan Series is a line of fully American Made wristwatches powered by restored, U.S. made pocket watch movements.

What makes the Boston 374 Unique: Here comes another hunting style watch! This classic look is a favorite, especially for those will a more traditional taste. The machined titanium case is contrasted with our gold crown, adding some subtle flair. The olive band accents the gold of the crown while allowing the dial to be the main attraction. This 17jewel movement was manufactured by the Waltham Watch Company in 1896, the same year that John Philip Sousa composed his magnum opus, "Stars and Stripes Forever". You'll notice the movement is a private label by Waltham for Simons Brothers Co., which started as a gold and silver manufacturer of thimbles and pencil cases. Can you believe this movement is from 124 years ago?

Movement Manufacturer Information

The movement inside of this watch was made by Waltham Watch Company. We call this model "The Boston" because of the company's proximity to the city.

Also known as American Watch Company and American Waltham Watch Company, Waltham was one of the leaders in attempting an entirely new concept, machines making machines. Prior to this, a watchmaker would hand-make each part of a movement one-at-a-time. Operating from 1851-1957, Waltham called its product the "Scientific Watch." Waltham's innovative, precise machining techniques made parts interchangeable, and their early version of the assembly line made high-quality watches efficient to produce. Legend has it that Henry Ford drew inspiration for his assembly line production from a visit to Waltham's factory. Located on the bank of the Charles River in "Watch City" (Waltham), Massachusetts, the factory has since been converted to apartment lofts.
