Watch Description

Introducing the Springfield 022, a wristwatch conversion by Vortic Watch Company. This distinguished timepiece is built from an antique Illinois Watch Company pocket watch originally made in 1923. We have paired our machined stainless steel case and crown with a tobacco leather strap to complement the striking numerals of the dial and delicate black steel hands.

The Springfield 022 is an American Artisan Series release. Each timepiece in this series is meticulously restored, preserving the heritage of the original pocket watch within.

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.
