The hat is the perfect gift for my son.He loves the Vortic Watch Company and what it stands for! Thanks for the hat! And the perfect piece of time!
I absolutely love the Chicago 128 Artisan Series watch I recently purchased from your company. I was initially concerned about the 46 mm size, but it’s lighter than I expected, it’s comfortable to wear, and it looks fine on my relatively thin wrist. Even when I’m not wearing the watch, I enjoy just holding it in my hand, looking at both the face and the movement. The watch is a work of mechanical and engineering art. While many large watch companies currently market their so-called heritage or legacy timepieces, and some of them are quite appealing, your watches take the concept of ”heritage” to an even higher level. Better yet, it’s an all American heritage at that!
Received my watch a few weeks ago and I love the way the conversion came out. Everyone at Vortic was extremely helpful and the final product was well worth the wait!
The Chicago 079 is another great piece of vintage Elgin craftsmanship married to a precision-manufactured Vortic wristwatch case. The combination of the old and new technology to create a classic, full-functioning mechanical timepiece that looks great, performs well, and has all the benefits that modern technology and materials can bring to bear on a rugged wrist-watch case is engineering at its finest. It is the most sublime pleasure imaginable to watch the movement operate through the "Gorilla Glass" back while listening to the strong re-assuring tic of a watch that was placed in service one hundred and four years ago. It is a uniquely satisfying experience to say the least. The Vortic approach to the watch purchase and delivery experience is masterful. Outstanding documentation, a presentation-style case with careful wrapping and exceptional care in packaging for shipment. This attention to detail is on par with the "Apple" style approach to the entire purchase experience. These folks have a vision of exceptionalism in the watch manufacturing arena, and certainly a keen appreciation of the artistry of the great American Watch Companies of the past. What a great combination which results in great watches!!
Vortic watch brought a piece of history to life that has deep meaning to me and my family. Our father flew as a navigator on a B-24 and would certainly have had one of the pocket watches with him when they were shot up and then imprisoned as a POW. Having a piece of WW-II history made into such a beautiful watch is incredibly special. The fit and finish are next-level and the attention to detail is astonishing. The clear back allows a window back in time to see the craftsmanship of the original watchmaker and Vortic's team.
My Military Edition Hamilton 4992B Army Air
Corp Watch has not been off my wrist since I received it almost two weeks ago. The build quality is outstanding, the extras included with the watch are top notch and- surprisingly for a 75 year old movement- it didn’t lose more than about 1 minute in an entire week! Not only were these movements outstanding when originally built, but RT and the team have done a stellar job reconditioning and servicing them. And to top it off, RT has answered my emails personally and within about a day.
Vortic is really o to something here, so keep it up!
While there is always a little wait for a custom, hand built item like this military edition, it is well worth the wait. Thanks! Glenn
Precision vintage instrument for the wrist that everyone admirers and desires.
Vortic has a very unique and “I can hand this down to my kids, grandkids and so on” type of product. Not just a watch but more. Thanks!
This watch is nothing short of a museum piece of American history. I love this watch and am grateful for R.T and the team at Vortic for this beautiful work.
I have 15 Vortic watches with more on order. I love them. They are well made and each is unique, unlike so much mass-produced stuff these days. Each is a piece of history. They are works of art.
I am speechless as to the level of detail and execution in building this watch! Thanks to the entire Vortic Team!!
I feel most fortunate to have been one of 50 to buy and receive this masterpiece. Vortic has done an amazing job bringing this back to life. Two of my son-in-laws, both watch fanatics with what I consider an exceptional taste, have given this Military Edition a rave review. I am sure this was no small feat accumulating these pocket watches over the years and then engineering the re-design into a wrist watch. It honors the history of these timepieces. Thank you Vortic the company and thank you Vortic the people!
I own several Vortic watches and everyone never fails to deliver on stunning appearance, function, and conversation. But the military edition is in a class by itself. The watch is beautifully crafted. From the packaging to informational booklet, every thing is impeccably thought out. The display stand is well crafted but this watch won’t be using it as it will be on my wrist. Three bands, the casing, the look... I can’t say enough about this watch. The already high standards set by Vortic have been surpassed. An amazing time piece that I feel incredibly lucky to be able to own.
