A story on your wrist..

You can never say no a really nice watch, but to have a one that also has its own individual backstory is something I love.
My Vortic has its own unique wrinkles, bumps and history wrapped up in a modern case.
I think everyone with a collection (no matter how small) should have one, just to be a subtly different, and remind us all of the ingenuity and history behind great watchmaking.

Outstanding Craftsmanship

I love everything about my Vortic watch! It's obvious they consider every intricacy of the mechanism during restoration. The watch itself is beautiful, but the history behind the original restored watch is priceless! The overall craftsmanship of everything is outstanding! My watch is now a functioning piece of art and history that I will be able to pass down for generations to come!

The Chicago 434 (46mm)
Howard Sklamberg
A beautiful piece of history

I purchased a Chicago 434 and absolutely love it. It’s wonderful thinking about wearing a time piece made in 1916. It’s not only beautiful, with a sturdy and comfortable case, but it also works very well. It runs about 5 seconds from correct time per day, which is remarkable for an antique. (Many modern movements don’t do that). The movement is beautiful to look at, as well.

I love what Vortic is doing!!

It is not often that you find something that is original and one of one. The watch that I purchased will be the only one of its kind. To have a pocket watch that was used 100 years ago on my wrist is a fantastic feeling.
This watch will be a conversation starter wherever I go.

Awesome! Just order and don’t worry!

In Love

Vortic is a company we’ve been watching for years, we even toured their facility because we think they are so awesome. My boyfriend knew exactly what he wanted for his watch and this one hit every mark. I got it for his birthday as a surprise, he got tears in his eyes when he opened it because it’s so special to him. We love the history behind these pieces, we love the company that makes them and I know this watch will be loved for generations to come!

Have to wait till my B day June 11 the 😱😱

Boston 393

My Vortic Boston timepiece is a treasure. The attention to detail is on point: the milling of the case is flawless; the movement runs with quiet precision; and all functions of the crown are distinct, yet smooth. Few things today are built to last a lifetime, this watch is the exception. Well done.

Love my Vortic Military Watch

My military watch is awesome. Love the look and feel. The extra bands gives me the option to change it up. If you are looking for historical and most important to me, unique, this is the watch for you.

Nice job

Enjoying the watch.

Heritage Railroad Edition

This watch was everything I expected and more. The wait was well it. I have so many compliments on my new time piece. I will be a continue customer and walking time piece Advertisement for this company. Well Done

Perfect way to preview a watch

The watch builder at Vortic was a perfect way for me to turn my old pocket watch into an attention getting conversation piece. The system allowed me to create an image of what the finished product would be. The actual watch looked identical to the preview. And the watch itself is incredible. The fit and finish on the case, the refurbishment of the movement and the way the team treated me throughout the process were all world class. I am already looking forward to my next project with the team.

Excellent article

Great read I’m glad Vortic is doing my watch. Remember to help the little guy.

Watch Builder

The watch builder worked great. Loved the amount of choices and being able to see how my watch would look when finished. Can’t wait to see the final product

The Boston 351 (46mm)
David Fletcher
Love the watch!

I bought the Boston 351 and it is absolutely amazing. I get asked about it all the time and I’ve only had it for a few weeks. I love the history behind the watch and the company. The open back is a real treat and I find myself getting lost on the movement ticking away. Keep up the awesome work!

MOST beautiful watch in our collection!!

My husband LOVES his new Vortic watch! It's GORGEOUS!! The suede strap is soft and supple. The face is perfection! We love it so much we are looking at ordering another! Bravo Vortic! Bravo!!

The Chicago 415 (46mm)

Impossibly Cool

I was blown away when I first received my new Vortices Watch. The packaging and all of the information inside were top-notch. The watch itself is absolutely stunning in the metal. The size to weight ratio is incredible, and the watch fits like a glove. I'm taken by the highly decorated 100-year-old movement inside. I spend just as much time looking through the case back as I do with the watch on my wrist. It's been an absolute pleasure to own.

Stunning Piece

I have been waiting awhile for this watch. I knew I wanted a Springfield, being from Illinois, and the case the be made of titanium, since it’s light. The watch beautiful and it gets noticed every time I wear it.

As good as expected

I sent in my father's 1951 Ball Railroad watch to be turned into a wrist watch. Preservation and new usefulness were the main reasons. Both of those were accomplished. The watch is simply gorgeous now. I've used it more in the past two weeks than it had been used in the past 60 years. The watch keeps time like it never has before. It's dead on accurate after two weeks of running. Amazing! The Vortic product is worth the price in my opinion. It took much longer than expected, but I think it was during a window of their expansion. I was in no rush to get it back anyway. Better done right than rushed and done wrong. Great job Vortic. Thanks for helping to preserve a now family heirloom.

Just awesome

The watch is magnificent and demands respect for whoever wore it previously.
From the packaging to the watch itself everything is so professionally made. It is always a conversation starter because if it’s looks and then because if it’s history. My favorite watch in my collection.

Great company and product

The process was very easy, and the team was very responsive and helpful with all my questions along the way. Very cool to be able to create your own vintage watch with the options they offer. Great materials.
It is a very unique timepiece, there is a lot of history and character behind these watches. Also, love that you can hear the "ticking" and that it is a windup. Overall very happy.

Historic Watch Beyond Expectation

The title says it all. One cannot truly appreciate this watch just from the photos found online at the website. Once seen in person, one truly appreciates the craftsmanship that goes into reinvigorating this historical timepiece. This watch will continue to live on for many future generations.

Message speaks volumes

I bought the shirt for my husband after I bought him a watch. The message on the t-shirt reflects the history of America. America was built by working people.

One of a Kind Conversation Starter

My 1902 Waltham Maximus just arrived and WOW was it worth the wait! I absolutely love this watch! The team at Vortic was extremely helpful from my first contact. They recommended several different timepieces to meet my preferences and helped me with the building process after I made my selection. The finished product far exceeded my expectations. It’s an absolutely beautiful 119 year old work of art! I’m eager to start my next build with Vortic!

One of the most unique watch’s I have owned

First of all the presentation is a home run . The fun of opening the cartridge case and removing the various layers/ items added to the surprise of the watch . What a beauty 😀 I must say that the watch keeps perfect time . I could not ask for anything more . Vortic , keep up the great work and keep the surprise coming .
