Watch Description

The Boston 372 is the 372nd 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 372 Unique: It’s so hard not to fall in love with this watch’s unique, golden dial. We added a gold-plated crown to accent its incredible color and a diamond-like-coated titanium case to make it pop. The subtle texture you see on the dial, which seems crisp and clean at first glance, is worth taking a closer look at. Full moon hands with a rustic look and beautiful blue color contrast perfectly with the rest of the watch face. We added a black cordovan strap and gold-plated hardware to complement the dial without distracting from its stunning character. This watch’s movement has all the hallmarks of a classic Waltham. A magnificent damaskeen pattern is carefully machined across the entire build plate, creating an additional sense of movement. A mix of 17 screw-set and friction-set jewels power these beautiful gold gears. A Breguet hairspring and brass balance wheel are at the heart of this movement, which was originally manufactured in 1935 in Waltham, Massachusetts. On May 30th of the same year, future Hall of Famer, Babe Ruth, played in his final Major League Baseball game. He played for the Boston Braves at the time, against the Phillies in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

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.
