Watch Description

The Boston 332 is the 332nd 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 332 Unique: We are proud to release this stunning Boston 332 to our lineup, and couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. The floral pattern on the double-sunk dial catches the eye immediately, along with these incredibly bold and unique black numerals. Our coal strap ties in with the design well, while contrasting the soft sandblasted titanium case and nickel crown. This movement has us awestruck with the incredible amount of detail machined all throughout the different layers, keeping your eye continuously moving throughout. Gold plated gears spin on 17 friction-set jewels, while this patent regulator keeps great time. This watch was originally produced by the Waltham Watch Company out of Waltham, Massachusetts in 1921. Waltham was founded by Aaron Lufkin Dennison and Edward Howard in 1849. Dennison is known for the Dennison Gauge, which became the US Standard gauge to measure parts of the watches more accurately. He was also known for creating manufacturing techniques that utilized interchangeable parts, making repairs on watches much easier.

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.
