The Springfield Railroad 015 is the 15th piece in Vortic’s Railroad Edition to be built using an antique Illinois Watch Company, Railroad Grade pocket watch movement originally manufactured in Springfield, Illinois.
It features the CNC machined titanium Railroad Edition case that allows for access to the lever set mechanism. With matching steel crown and classic black Horween Shell Cordovan strap, this watch is a stunning example of the Railroad Edition. Inside is an Illinois Bunn Special 60 Hour originally manufactured in Springfield, Illinois in 1929. The Bunn Special is one of the most famous Railroad pocket watch movements.
The Railroad Edition casing system is 51mm in diameter and is water resistant when the bezel is fully and properly attached.
Note: This watch is LEVER set, meaning the bezel must be removed to set the time. This was the original safety mechanism for the Railroads, and is an amazing feature, but we recommend learning more about the Railroad Edition prior to purchase to ensure understanding of the unique aspects of this watch.
