Watch Description

What makes the Burlington 019 unique: For today’s Watch of the Day we bring you this amazing timepiece from the Burlington Watch Company, our Burlington 019. This stunning watch has us captivated by the unique look of the dial, with subtle signs of aging on the numerals that tell the story of its long life. We love the soft gold-colored tones of the face and decided to complement it with our gold-plated crown and Yukon strap, as well as gold-plated hardware throughout. Everything is cased in this stunning black DLC case and accented by the very bold hands that have a wonderful dark blue finish. As we turn the watch over to reveal the movement, we are immediately drawn to the fine details that are customary to Burlington. These watches were contract-built by the Illinois Watch Company, which is where we find a lot of visual cues to the build plates and design. Burlington only used the highest grade movements that Illinois made at the time, which is evident with the 21 beautiful jewels spread throughout, as well as gold-plated gears beneath this custom-shaped bridge plate. Stainless steel hardware and accents bring attention to all of the finer details and make everything pop nicely. This watch was originally produced in Springfield, Illinois all the way back in 1916. In April of this year, Congress passed the National Parks Service Act, setting up the management of our parks systems all across the country.

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.
