Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 040 unique: Featuring an Illinois pocket watch originally manufactured in 1926, The Springfield 040 is a unique and stylish statement piece for your wrist. The original cream dial with gold numerals and accents is perfectly complemented by our sandblasted satin finish bronze case and crenelated bezel. Similarly, the blued steel kite hands pair well with the eye-catching blue leather strap, and we've rounded out the look with a stainless steel crown. This conversion strikes a wonderful balance between antique and modern.

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.
