Watch Description

What makes the Canton 001 unique: Introducing the Canton 001, a wristwatch conversion by Vortic Watch Company. This timepiece is crafted from an antique 17-jewel Duber Hampton Watch Company pocket watch, which dates back to 1910.

Like all watches in Vortic Watch Company's American Artisan Series, the Canton 001 has been carefully converted from a pocket watch by our in-house watchmakers, engineers, and machinists, who all have a hand in preserving its rich heritage.

Movement Manufacturer Information

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

Although founded in 1877, Hampen's story truly begins after its purchase by John C. Dueber in 1886. Mr. Dueber was in the process of moving his Kentucky based watch case manufacturing company, and he ultimately decided to move both the case company and Hampden watch company to Canton, Ohio together. Housing both operations on one campus, Dueber was able to produce cases for their own watches, unlike any other watch company. These two companies together eventually formed the Dueber-Hampden Watch Company. The company thrived until the late 1920's when it hit financial trouble and eventually closed its doors. The original factory building is no longer standing.
