Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 047 unique: The Springfield 047 is a stunning timepiece that beautifully revives a 1927 Illinois pocket watch. With its gold hands, applied Art Deco numerals, and an intricate silver cutout, this dial is nothing less than a showstopper. We've paired it with our precision-machined stainless steel case, a bronze crown, and a coin-edged bronze bezel to highlight the interplay of metals in the original piece and paired it with a timeless black leather strap. Regardless of what you wear, this watch will elevate any look and be sure to draw attention. 

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.
