What's a word for "better than awesome"?

Can't say enough about how awesome my watch and the experience has been with the team at Vortic. One of a kind operation and concept. Buy with total confidence.

The Lancaster 178 (46mm)

Love the watch

This watch gets far more compliments and notice than any of my others. It is so unique and you can see the genuine excitement in people as I explain that the story of the watch begins in 1929.

A Unique American Timepiece

What can be better than saving American pocket watches and converting them to wrist watches? This is one of my favorite watches in my collection. It's unique in design and wears well on the wrist with it's large dial and case back. The new winding crown, leather strap, and titanium case ensure that your former pocket watch is going to be running for quite some time.


I love everything about it. The feel, the look, the finish are all top notch, and for the size it wears very comfortably.

The Chicago 499 (46mm)

1899 Elgin: The Chicago 499

I truely love my new Vortic watch. The pictures you posted did not due it justice, looks so much better in person. The workmanship is superb. I have had several nice watches, but have not worn one since getting a cell phone. Besides the beauty of the watch, I love the history and look forward to putting it on each day. I ran across your web site a few months ago and have been following you ever since. With that I went looking for a couple of family pocket watches and found them. I have my grandfather's Illinois railroad watch (he retired from the N&W railroad) and my uncle's Hamilton 4992B pocket watch. My uncle was a tail gunner in a B17 and was shot down over France in WW2 (The German pilot who shot down his B17 actually saved his life. My uncle was wounded and unconscious. The pilot blew his parachute into France so he wold not land in the English channel). Not sure how he came by the navigator's watch, but I have it now. Was looking at your site to see about converting it to a wrist watch, but it will take a while to save for it, that is why I was looking to buy one of the watches you made. The history behind pocket watches is what I love, each one has a story to tell. Thanks so much for saving these great pices of history, it is something to savor and pass on to future generations. My son already wants mine. He will have to wait...or buy his own.

Love it

Beautiful watch, with over 100 years of history. Very wearable, with the crown at 12 o'clock, even on my thin (6.5 inch) wrist.

Springfield 554 Awesome

I absolutely love my new watch. The quality of the case is off the charts. Not to mention it keeps perfect time. Completely satisfied and would highly recommend.

Great shirt

That’s the sentiment we need more of!

A very pleasant surprise

I was walking around a Chicago art/antiquities show at the Merchandise mart when I recognized the booth showing wrist watches transformed from old pocket watches. Turns out my brother in law had purchased one years ago from Vortic as well. There was a handsome Waltham that I saw and purchased from the owner. I’m very happy with the watch, the buying experience and the follow up. I look forward to many happy years wearing my Waltham Boston 434

The Railroad addition is now my favorite!

I have several Vortic watches and this one just hit the top of my list. I'm wearing right now on a business trip in Toronto!

Military Edition

This watch is way better in person than all the pix and PR that proceeded it. Vortic has blown it out of the water. A conversation piece, a piece of history and great in the wrist! Bravo !!!!

Military 4th edition

Very impressed. Will display prominently!

Everything I expected and MORE!

Words can’t describe how cool this watch is and its level of quality. The folks at Vortic know what they're doing and are building a great American watch company.

Amazing Piece of History

The Military Edition - Fourth Edition far exceeded my expectations. It’s even better in person than in the photos. The details on this one of a kind watch are beautiful. It’s definitely the coolest watch I’ve ever seen.

My wife

This was for my wife so I was concerned about the size. She loves it

Springfield 546

The quality of the time peace exceeded my expectations.

Very pleased with my purchase

Superb customer service and beautiful final product

I struggled for a while to find the right watch (movement) to convert, and ended up settling on a 1920's Waltham 19J as the dial is particularly attractive (IMO) and the watch was in perfect condition before conversion. As a wrist watch I'll wear it much more often than I'd carry the pocket watch, so it's a win-win. Vortic's customer service is exceptional and made the process seamless and comfortable. Happy to recommend them.

The Chicago 496 (46mm)

A watch to keep

Since I got my Chicago 496 I have been wearing it daily to work more than my other watches. There is something with the looks, story, and knowing it’s a 106 year old watch makes it very unique. If you place the watch near your ear and hear the mechanics is by itself a joy.

Great Find

In search of an American made watch company that actually restores American History was fairly easy sell on finding the perfect time pieces and I did just purchase the 1912 Canton and I love it. Great mental balancer to have to keep your time operating. Most definitely will be adding to my collection from Vortic

Beautiful piece, LOVE IT!

The guys at Vortic really over-delivered my expectations here. It’s a staggeringly beautiful piece and they did a great job!
