Watch Description

The Burlington 015 is the 15th one-of-a-kind piece in Vortic's "Burlington" 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 Burlington 015 Unique: It is few and far between that we see a 3 o'clock crown and we love the look it on this Burlington. The speckled look on the dial is especially accented by a machined black case and coal strap. This movement is special, boasting 21 jewels manufactured by the Burlington Watch Company in 1918. We love learning about the events happening during the years these movements were produced and we found that 1918 was the year U.S. Congress established time zones and approves daylight saving time!

Movement Manufacturer Information

The movement inside of this watch was made by Burlington Watch Company. We call this model "The Burlington" because the company was located in Burlington, Illinois.

The Burlington Watch Company is unique in the sense that it did not manufacture its own watches. Only operating from 1908-1925, the Illinois Watch Company actually produced the vast majority of Burlington brand watches. The company sold watches by mail order on credit with payment plans. The called themselves the anti-trust watch saying that other companies fixed prices and forced consumers to pay extra because of the middleman. Their goal was to make high-quality watches available to those who couldn't normally afford them.
