Watch Description

The Red Rocks Limited Edition 2018 is here! We're building 20 watches, 10 in each of these two (2) colors: blackened and bronzed. These look similar to the 2018 Hall of Fame watches for the artists but are made for sale to the public.

We found antique Illinois pocket watch movements that we couldn't use because their dials were too rusted or cracked. We thought they were goners, but then we thought, maybe we can make a dial. So we did. And if you've been following us for a while, you might notice this is the first watch with our name on the face. 

Milled from a disc of steel, these dials were all designed, CNC milled, heat treated and laser etched inside our Fort Collins, Colorado manufacturing facility. We restored the original movements and hands of the pocket watches, applied our custom dials and designed the rest of the watches to match the aesthetic. 

Each piece is designed to look similar to the watches we build for the Hall of Fame artists. When they are sold, they're gone forever.

The skeleton back is amazing and the packaging was perfect. To honor the past with details like this is truly impressive.

It looks like it would have been right at home on the wrist of Indiana Jones! This watch is a showpiece as much as it is as unique timepiece!
—John from Indiana
After receiving the watch in the mail, I was surprised to see the watch somehow looked better in person than it did in the photos. I didn't think that would be possible!

I own so called "high end" watches such as Rolex, Panerai, and Zenith but they pale in comparison to my two Vortic models which I wear everyday to work.
