Watch Description

Introducing the Springfield 019, a wristwatch conversion by Vortic Watch Company. This timepiece is built from an antique 17-jewel Illinois Watch Company pocket watch, originally crafted in 1927. It is part of our American Artisan Series.

The Springfield 019 features a machined stainless steel case, a coin-edged stainless steel bezel, and a bronze crown. Its Merlot leather strap ensures both comfort and a nice contrast to the gold design on the dial.

Time King pocket watches were a notable line of timepieces produced by the Illinois Watch Company. These watches earned the "Time King" signature, representing the company's commitment to accuracy and precision.

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.
