Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 002 unique: At Vortic Watch Company, we are proud to present the Springfield 002 - a stunning wristwatch conversion that seamlessly blends vintage charm with modern sophistication.

Our skilled artisans have transformed this antique 17-jewel Illinois Watch Company pocket watch, first built in 1927, into a true work of art. With a machined stainless steel case, a coin-edge stainless steel bezel, and a bronze crown, this watch exudes a sense of masculine elegance that is sure to captivate anyone. Featuring the ever-popular and accurate "Autocrat" movement, these watch movements never disappoint.

But it is the face of the watch that truly steals the show, with gold-applied numerals and a delicately carved wheat-sheaf laurel coupled with the oxblood cordovan leather strap and gold-plated gears that add warmth and luxury to the overall aesthetic.

The Springfield 002 is a testament to the artistry and precision that goes into every Vortic Watch Company creation. As the hero of your own story, you deserve a timepiece that is as unique and exceptional as you are. Let the Springfield 002 be your constant companion as you embark on your next adventure, keeping time with impeccable accuracy and style.

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.
