Have you guys by chance had time to see these yet?

Looks like Vortic Watches is releasing a new collection of watches this
Veterans Day called the Military Edition. Which are custom wristwatches
made from salvaged antique American pocket watches. Watches that
were originally made for the United States Army Air Corps during WWII.

The Veterans Watchmaker Initiative will receive $500 from the sale of
each watch. Who provide training for U.S. Military Veterans who want
to become professional watchmakers.

With the watches having details like titanium 49 x 58mm cases, 50 meter
water resistance, custom domed glass, Hamilton 4992B movements, plus
special canvas, and leather straps, and much more everyone.

A few pictures for you...

















W&W, and Vortic Watches with a lot more...

donating $500 per watch sounds impressive until you see the pre-order price tag of $5,000. and thats on cheap canvas straps. oh, but they come on leather too so...there you go.

I guess you get some bragging rights though...first, that you have a limited edition # out of 50, and second, that you obviously have more money than you know what to do with.

Have to agree with you on all of your points Medic. :thumb:

Honestly guess I just like the whole idea that Vortic has had over
the years with salvaging old watches. Plus these pocket watches
are something special too. So thought it was extra cool ! :cool: :cool:

Still, you are totally right about the price at the end of the day sir.

Thanks very much for your thoughts about them !
