Watch Description

The Boston 362 is the 362nd one-of-a-kind piece in Vortic's "Boston" line of the American Artisan Series. This watch contains the original movement (timepiece), dial (face), and hands from a vintage (1880’s – 1950’s) pocket watch. The American Artisan Series is a line of fully American Made wristwatches powered by restored, U.S. made pocket watch movements.

What makes the Boston 362 Unique: If you like Art Deco style, you'll love this watch. The Waltham dial is in fantastic condition and the raised gold numerals really stand out when paired with our gold crown. We love the hands on this watch though because they are different than anything we've seen. Not only are they oversize, they have very sharp ends, and the overall style just adds to the amazing Art Deco theme. The original antique movement was manufactured in 1923 and is a 21j Riverside. Waltham used Riverside for its model because the factory was located along the Charles River in Waltham, Massachusetts. The factory still stands today, and is one of the most beautiful historical buildings in the state.

Movement Manufacturer Information

The movement inside of this watch was made by Waltham Watch Company. We call this model "The Boston" because of the company's proximity to the city.

Also known as American Watch Company and American Waltham Watch Company, Waltham was one of the leaders in attempting an entirely new concept, machines making machines. Prior to this, a watchmaker would hand-make each part of a movement one-at-a-time. Operating from 1851-1957, Waltham called its product the "Scientific Watch." Waltham's innovative, precise machining techniques made parts interchangeable, and their early version of the assembly line made high-quality watches efficient to produce. Legend has it that Henry Ford drew inspiration for his assembly line production from a visit to Waltham's factory. Located on the bank of the Charles River in "Watch City" (Waltham), Massachusetts, the factory has since been converted to apartment lofts.
