Regular price $2,295.00

 

The "Canton 002" is the 2nd one-of-a-kind piece in Vortic's "Canton" line of the American Artisan Series 2.0. Each AAS watch contains the original movement (timepiece), dial (face), and hands from a vintage (1880’s – 1950’s) pocket watch made by one of the original great American watch companies. Vortic uses cutting edge technology to preserve an important part of United States history in a strikingly attractive and functional way.

 

WATCH FEATURES:

This watch features a water-resistant, titanium 3D printed case with a raw, matte finish and a knurled, copper alloy crown. The 12-sized movement correlates to Vortic's 46mm case diameter and the mechanics of the movement are visible through the Gorilla Glass crystal of the exhibition style, stainless steel back. 

The open face configuration movement places the small seconds at 6 O'clock with the crown at 12 O'clock. The original, blued steel, "whipped spade" style hands point to an excellent condition, double sunk, white enamel dial (hairline crack near 7 O'clock and 3 O'clock). The numerals are bold, black, and serifed with a red 5-minute track in the margin.

1912 HAMPDEN DUEBER GRAND

Originally produced by the Hampden Watch Company in 1912, this "Dueber Grand" grade movement is a beautiful example of American craftsmanship. The Dueber Watch Case Company purchased the Hampden Watch Company in 1886, and this watch carries John C. Dueber's namesake. 

From a Vintage Hampden-Dueber advertisement: "Look for the name DUEBER on the case and one of [Hampden's] trademarks on the works if you want a satisfactory time-piece."

The movement has nickel plated bridges and main plate decorated with elegant damascening and circular graining, a fully jeweled gear train (17 jewels) with gold jewel settings, gilt lettering, adjustment to positions, a Hampden star regulator, and a split-plate/fingered Hampden bridge design.
