But to be totally honest, these two issues are very minor ones for me with this watch.  Sure, if this were a few $100 and mass produced, I would not let them slide, but the Vortic Boston 48 is essentially a custom built watch for $2,995.  And since they don’t charge a change fee for the crown, this wouldn’t be an issue if I were buying one.  As for the strap, the cost of a nice one is not very significant, and it really opens up the avenues for even more personalizion of the watch.  The Vortic Boston 48 is about the movement, and the case and dial to show off the movement, and in these three areas, the watch knocks it out of the park.  Vortic Watch Co.
