Watch Description

The Boston 365 is the 365th 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 365 Unique: Don't let this dial fool you! Although it has seen some history, this powerful movement is over 100 years old. Produced by the Waltham Watch Company, this movement is a Riverside Maximus and was recognized as the "most highly and artistically finished movement" capability at the time. Boasting 23jewels and with the "Maximus" engraving, this movement truly does reach a different caliber. The dial, though patina'd through time and sporting a few scratches and nicks, reads as a classic Art Deco style as it was manufactured in 1919. We chose our machined titanium case and gold crown to allow the dial to provide the texture while matching the patina'd tones in our choice of tobacco colored strap. For some context on the timeframe this piece is from, did you know 1919 was actually the year rotary telephones were introduced?

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.
