The Boston

From Vortic

Seeing as Tempus Fugit is based here in Boston, this seemed like an appropriate watch to feature today.  This is part of Vortic's American Artisan series.

Fort those unfamiliar, Vortic offers a made in America watch by creating a titanium case via 3D printing technology to offer something that harnesses some leading edge US manufacturing technology.  But it is important to understand that while the team at Vortic is creating a somewhat "new fangled" watch case, the heart of the Vortic Boston is a restored vintage Waltham pocket watch movement.
