Watch Description

What makes the Burlington 004 unique: This vintage 21-jewel pocket watch from 1925 has been beautifully transformed into a modern wristwatch. Encased in sandblasted steel, the watch exudes a timeless charm with its aged patina, capturing the essence of its original manufacturing era. Its navy blue strap complements the steel case, adding a contemporary touch while preserving the watch's classic appeal. This unique fusion of history and modernity results in a one-of-a-kind timepiece that bridges the gap between the past and present.

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.
