Hey man. Crazy to come across this topic here. I'm a huge watch nerd, and while I don't own a Vortic I think what they're doing is worth the price. They also machine their own watch's cases and restore the old movements themselves. If you're a fan of USA-made stuff I say go for it. Oh, and if your wrist isn't tiny like mine. Their watches are large.

I've done a fair bit of talking to the owner, RT and he is a stand-up guy. I own a small side-hustle called Solomon Straps where we handcraft and sell leather watch bands, and RT and I have talked about collaborating.

Issue with a brand like Vortic, regardless of the quality or sex appeal of their watches, is that for that same price point of 6-7K one could get an (maybe CPO forsure) Omega, Rolex, JLC etc which represent the standard in the entry-level higher-end watches. So I think you'd really need to be passionate about their watch designs / heritage to really spring for one instead of a known tried and tested swiss counterpart.

No, but as a watch guy it's tough for me to fathom from their website that anyone who's trying to spend money on a pricey timepiece would look at, much less pull the trigger on, a watch that isn't one of the standard brands. I'm not saying that it's a poor brand or anything like that, but from a selling point of view I'm not sure why a no-rep watch brand would attract much attention.
