Watch Description

The Boston 386 is the 386th 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 386 Unique: With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we decided to release a very special edition: The Boston 386. We are absolutely in love with this watch! With such a uniquely colored dial, this watch is sure to impress your special someone. Wearing your heart on your sleeve has never been more fitting than having this gorgeous watch adorn your wrist. This dial is incredibly unique and we knew when we got it that we had to set it aside for a very particular occasion. A light blue background with a flowery pink center, accented with gold stars all around and set with roman numerals. Finished in a machined titanium case, gold crown and buckle, and a spectacular merlot strap. This watch is truly exceptional and we are so happy we could release it just in time for a special day. For you history buffs, on Valentine's Day in 1929, the year this movement was produced by the Waltham Watch Company, was the Valentine's Day Massacre. Al Capone's Chicago Outfit was widely suspected of ordering the hit, but no one was ever prosecuted.

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.
