Watch Description

The Boston 370 is the 370th 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 370 Unique: This watch is second to none, rare is the only word we can seem to use. We were baffled to find this dial and movement combination, not only still together but in the condition they are in as well. The dial features an extremely rare engraving in the center which actually sits on the dial as opposed to being engraved into the dial. The hand style are also rare in and of themselves, with the hollow square design towards the tip. You'll also notice on the dial and the movement the words "Premier" are inscribed which indicates the grade of movement Waltham used as well as suggesting this dial and movement have always been paired together. An art deco lovers dream, this movement was produced in 1925 by the Waltham Watch Company and a final rarity for this watch, is the cross-hatch pattern engraved on the movement. All of these individually rare aspects make for a literally one of a kind, Conversation Piece of a watch.

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.
