Colorado based Vortic Watch Company in association with Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado has created a special collection of watches dedicated to Red Rocks Hall of Fame Artists . This first Red Rocks amphitheatre “Hall of Fame Edition” watch was presented to Jackson Browne, one of a handful of artists to be inducted into the Red Rocks Hall of Fame this year, and each inductee will be honored with their own custom built watch to commemorate the award.
Each piece in the collection is completely one-of-a-kind, 100% made in the United states, and powered by an antique, U.S. made pocket watch movement (just like Vortic’s American Artisan Series). All of the watches are handcrafted just an hour north of the amphitheater in Fort Collins, CO at Vortic’s workshop.
The Hall of Fame Edition features an artisanal engraving of the Red Rocks logo on the case and an exclusive set of serial numbers.
The Red Rocks – Vortic Watch Co partnership is also developing a Red Rocks “Limited Edition” watch to be available to the public. Each Limited Edition piece will be one-of-a-kind and share a common aesthetic with the Hall of Fame Edition watches. These pieces will be sold at the Red Rocks amphitheater and at vortic watches webstore.
Red Rocks Amphitheater is a rock structure near Morrison, Colorado, 10 miles west of Denver, where concerts are given in the open-air amphitheater. Red Rocks Amphitheater is a naturally formed, world famous outdoor venue just fifteen miles west of Denver, and it is the most attended outdoor amphitheater of its kind in the world. There is a large, tilted, disc-shaped rock behind the stage, a huge vertical rock angled outwards from stage right, several large outcrops angled outwards from stage left and a seating area for up to 9,525 people in between. The amphitheater is owned and operated by the City and County of Denver, Colorado and is located in Red Rocks Park, part of the Denver Mountain Parks system.
