Watch Description

The Boston 306 is the 306th 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 306 Unique: We are happy to bring your attention to the beautiful Boston 306, a timepiece that has us coming back, again and again, to take in all the fabulous details. We love how the once gold-colored hands and numerals have softened over time to leave a copper-like feel, matching this tobacco band brilliantly. Some points of interest from wear and tear over the years add to the charm of this watch, complemented well by our machined titanium case and bright gold crown. This watch has all the feel of old, with the modern look to keep it timeless for years to come. One of the more unique movements coming from Waltham, this Colonial shows off with a one-of-a-kind bridge plate design carefully demaskeened all throughout to carry visual interest all around the inside of this spectacular watch. Adorned by 17 friction-set jewels, with stainless hardware and gold-plated gears showing through from underneath all add to the high-class appeal of this amazing Colonial movement. Originally manufactured by Waltham in 1936 in Waltham, Massachusetts amongst a short run of only 6,000 others at that time. At this same time in Germany at the summer Olympics, the world-famous Jesse Owens defied the Germans and Hitler himself coming away with four Gold medals for the United States.

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.
