To celebrate the 4th of July, check out one of these beautiful Vortic watches. Vortic makes all their watches right here in America, assembling them in their Northern Colorado factory. They make several collections of watches capturing the spirit of old-time American manufacturing, but their American Artisan Collection is one that really stands out to us.
Each watch in the American Artisan line is powered by a restored, US-made movement that was originally crafted sometime between 1880 and 1950 – so each watch is literally an antique piece of American history, that you can wear right on your wrist. It also means each watch is a totally unique piece, in its own way. Vortic wants to preserve these pieces of American craftsmanship and keep them from being lost, and ensure they last for decades to come.
A few models you could spring for right now would be the Boston 164, with a Riverside grade movement originally made by the Waltham Watch Company in 1908. Another would be the Chicago 142, which was originally made by the Elgin National Watch Company of Elgin, Illinois in 1922. Both are beautiful.
American Artisan watches also feature 3D printed titanium cases, Gorilla Glass crystals, milled stainless backs and water-resistance designs. And each and every one of those parts was manufactured and crafted right here in the USA.
So celebrate the 4th this year with a true piece of American heritage. Vortic watches certainly aren’t cheap, but for a unique, vintage, stylish piece of history, you can’t go wrong.
