The Chicago Railroad 033 (51mm)

Product Description

The Chicago Railroad 033 is the 33rd one-of-a-kind piece in Vortic's "Chicago Railroad" 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 Chicago Railroad 033 Unique: It is our pleasure to present this near perfect Railroad watch. The double sunk, grand feu enamel dial is in spectacular condition. Produced by the Elgin watch company in 1917, this is a Veritas 23jewel Double Roller movement - Elgin’s highest grade. A “Double Roller” movement literally has two rollers fitted to the balance staff which allows a more efficient engagement between the guard pin and the roller. With this watch being a Railroad lever set movement, you actually remove the bezel and pull the lever in order to set the time. We chose a matte stone strap to compliment the machined titanium case while allowing the dial to truly shine. We love the style of the of these big numbers and bold hands as they make it easy to read the time at a quick glance!
