Watch Description

The Burlington 029 is a truly unique conversion from our American Artisan Series. This 47mm wristwatch boasts a 21-jewel pocket watch originally manufactured in 1917 by the Burlington Watch Company. We’ve enclosed this timepiece in our bronzed titanium case and topped it with a knurled bronze crown to underscore the wonderfully patinaed dial, figurative numerals, and moon-style hands. We thought this style of leather strap would genuinely bring out the uniqueness of the dial.

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.
