Meticulously restored antique pocketwatch movements
Americans bought more than 35 million smartwatches last year, but
Luckbox remains partial to old-school timepieces. For our money, nobody does analog quite like Vortic Watch Company. The firm rescues the movements from inside century-old pocketwatches about to be melted for the gold in their casings. It then transplants those mechanisms into newly minted wristwatches. The oversize face is substantial, and the detail is simply stunning. Each watch is a timeless masterpiece.
