Convert Your Watch

•  •  •

Every watch we build has an amazing story to tell, but we invite you to use your own pocket watch in an American Artisan Series or Railroad Edition case to add a new chapter to your watch's saga. Pocket watches were usually very important to the individuals who used them, and we believe the best way to honor those pieces is to make them functional again.

PROCESS

1

Tell us about the pocket watch you would like to have converted by submitting the form below.

2

An associate at Vortic will respond to your submission to confirm that your watch is a candidate for conversion.

3

Ship the carefully packaged pocket watch to Vortic Commissions - 517 N. Link Lane, STE A, Fort Collins, CO 80524. Please add tracking and insurance to ensure the integrity of your shipment.

4

Upon receipt of your watch, Vortic will email an official plan, timeline, and invoice for your project.

5

Vortic begins meticulously restoring your mechanism while working with you directly to finalize the custom design features of your wristwatch.

6

As soon as the final product is assembled, Vortic will email an image to confirm that you are pleased with the final design.

7

Vortic will send your watch, original pocket watch case, and an email containing tracking information when testing and adjustment is completed. NOTE - This process takes an average of 6-8 weeks, but lead times vary project to project.

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

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

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

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 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!

When you make your selections, we'll start building! You can even call us and we'll walk you through the design process on the phone.

You'll notice on our Watch Builder that we also offer custom engraving. We can laser engrave a logo, your initials, or a special message on the back ring of the watch or the side of the case. Check out the slideshow below for some examples of our past work.
