Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 017 unique is: Simple and clean with this watch. The 017 shares Illinois Aristocrat dial and movement both set in a polished bronze case to show off the ornate hands. Illinois Watch Co spared no detail in creating this fine watch and our modern case helps accentuate each piece of this watch.

 


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.
