Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 006 unique: 

We are excited to introduce the Springfield 006, a wristwatch conversion by Vortic Watch Company.

This stunning timepiece was created using an antique 17-jewel Illinois Watch Company pocket watch from 1925. We have transformed it into a beautiful machined stainless steel watch with a polished stainless steel bezel, bronze crown, merlot leather strap, and gold plated gears.

This watch is part of our American Artisan Series, which features unique timepieces made by hand in the USA.

We have preserved the original movement of the pocket watch and incorporated it into a modern case system that will preserve the watch for another 100 years or more.

If you are looking for a unique and exceptional timepiece that blends the past with the present, the Springfield 006 V3 is the perfect choice for you.

Movement Manufacturer Information

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

Originally called the Springfield Watch Company, Illinois came to Springfield, Illinois in 1869 while the "modern" watch industry was fairly new but highly promising. City officials felt that the addition of industry to the city of Springfield would be excellent for the city's growth. However, after a series of failures and re-brandings, the company had a slow start until 1903 when they decided to manufacture high-quality watches only. Eventually making some of the most beautiful watches of their time, the company sold to Hamilton in 1927. Hamilton continued producing watches under the Illinois name for some time, but the original Springfield factory no longer stands.
