Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 056 unique: Featuring a 1922 Illinois Watch Company pocket watch, the Springfield 056 is a study in contrast. The eye is immediately drawn to the dial's raised gold numerals and kite hands, while a matte stone-colored border surrounds a satin-finished dial center with a delicate leaf pattern. The 17 jewel movement visible through the open case back reveals gold accents and rose gold plated gears. We've accented these metallic elements with a two-toned stainless steel case and bronze bezel and crown and completed the luxurious feel with a stitched cordovan oxblood leather strap.

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.
