Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 604 unique:  Introducing the Springfield 604, a stunning wristwatch conversion by Vortic Watch Company. This beautiful timepiece is part of our American Artisan Series and has been carefully crafted from an antique 17-jewel Illinois Watch Company pocket watch, originally built in 1921.

We've given this historic timepiece new life by converting it into a wristwatch with a champagne titanium case, a nickel-plated crown, a black cordovan leather strap, and gold-plated gears. The result is a one-of-a-kind watch that seamlessly blends vintage and modern aesthetics.

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.
