Watch Description

The Chicago 377 is the 377th one-of-a-kind piece in Vortic's "Chicago" 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 Chicago 377 Unique: This watch is a bit of a tease. It may be seemingly subtle at first glance but take a closer look and it is full of detailed surprises. The dial has a unique etched design with arrows pointing to the center of the watch. The Elgin name still reads clear in a gold frame despite this dial being produced in 1923 - nearly one hundred years ago! We’ve preserved this piece of American History in a machined titanium case with a nickel crown to match the tone of the dial. It is paired with a natural band to balance the shine of the dial. Fun fact, the year this movement was produced in 1923, the first issue of Time magazine is published!

Movement Manufacturer Information

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

Also known as Elgin National Watch Company, Elgin wasn't only the largest watch manufacturer in the United States, but the largest watch manufacturer in the world for almost 100 years, operating from 1864-1964. The company often used a depiction of father time on advertisements. At one point, the company was making 7,500 watch movements per week and had 2,300 employees. The factory was demolished in 1966 and replaced with a shopping center.
