Watch Description

Introducing The Springfield 020, part of our American Artisan Series. This striking watch preserves a 1921 Illinois Watch Company pocket watch, encasing it in a refined stainless steel case with an exhibition back and knurled crown. These polished details mimic the delicate parallel Geneva stripes engraved in the movement and supply radiance to its ivory dial. We’ve completed this timepiece with a blue leather strap that accentuates the watch’s regal blued-steel, open diamond hands. 

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.
