a Conversation with R.T. Custer of Vortic Watch

Welcome to Episode 12 of The worn&wound Podcast. In this episode, we sit down with R.T. Custer of Vortic Watch Company to discuss his brand and what the future holds in store. Then we get to two listener questions. You can listen to our entire episode below and scroll down to the bottom of the page for the show notes.

Vortic is a young, Colorado-based brand founded in 2014 after successfully completing a Kickstarter campaign in December of that year. The company’s concept of mixing new and old is not entirely unfamiliar, but the ultimate execution of their watches is relatively novel. The cases are 3D-printed metal—available in a number of different options and manufactured to spec right here in the United States. Inside the watches are vintage pocket watch calibers from iconic, historically American makers, among them Waltham, Elgin and Ball. Now, the idea of using orphaned pocket watch movements isn’t exactly new, but the resulting watches certainly have an aesthetic that is different from most else currently on the market. As it stands, Vortic timepieces—from the movements all the way down to the buckle—are 100-percent American-made.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
