Watch Description

What makes the Burlington 028 unique: First built in 1920, this pocketwatch-turned wristwatch has an interesting feature on the dial – each minute is recorded on the outer track, with the 5-minute increments highlighted in red. Paired with the whip-style minute hand, it makes it very easy to acquire the time to the nearest minute.

With 21 jewels for increased longevity and accuracy and a DLC coating on the titanium case, this watch makes for a fantastic practical heirloom that you can pass down through the years.

Movement Manufacturer Information

The movement inside of this watch was made by Burlington Watch Company. We call this model "The Burlington" because the company was located in Burlington, Illinois.

The Burlington Watch Company is unique in the sense that it did not manufacture its own watches. Only operating from 1908-1925, the Illinois Watch Company actually produced the vast majority of Burlington brand watches. The company sold watches by mail order on credit with payment plans. The called themselves the anti-trust watch saying that other companies fixed prices and forced consumers to pay extra because of the middleman. Their goal was to make high-quality watches available to those who couldn't normally afford them.
