Vortic's straps are handcrafted in Largo, FL by the Stylecraft division of Hadley Roma. These straps are custom made for Vortic, and they are available in two different colors of U.S. made Horween Shell Cordovan leather.
Shell Cordovan leather is only made by the Famous Horween Leather Company of Chicago, IL. They use a very specific piece of the horse hide and a process passed down through many Horween generations to create a unique color and texture that takes in character beautifully as it ages.
The buckles are all hand forged in Detroit, MI by Smith Shop exclusively for Vortic's straps. The forging process includes continuously heating and hammering the material into its desired shape, and it produces an extremely strong and unique finished product.
Lugs = 22mm
Buckle width = 20mm
Note - Our straps are designed to fit almost every wrist, but if you have especially large or petite wrists we can custom make your strap. Simply choose custom strap size and let us know your wrist size.

Our mission is to preserve and enhance the legacy of manufacturing excellence in America. We believe that this legacy is highly relevant in the world of watch manufacturing because our goal is to marry form and function in a way that makes something beautiful that will last forever. American made pocket watches were of such a high quality and decoration that they evolved into more than just a way to tell time. They became traditional heirlooms to be inherited by future generations as a wedding gift or a coming of age treasure. Each piece tells a lively tale of what U.S. manufacturing meant in the past using an intricate language of decorated bridges, plates, gears, and springs. Today, we are restoring these pieces to their former glory and making them relevant again using the best of modern technology.
We feel proud and blessed to live in the country, state, and city that we do. However, our motivation to build everything in the United States, and to deal locally whenever possible, is derived from a different source of inspiration. We believe that the close relationships, face-to-face interaction, and tight quality control we achieve while dealing domestically produces a truly superior product. Because of this, we are very transparent about where our components are made as we continue to build our in-house capabilities.
