Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 057 unique: Featuring a 1922 Illinois Watch Company pocket watch, the Springfield 057 preserves and rejuvenates a century-old piece of American history. A distinctive textured white dial with stylized black numerals is paired with blued steel kite hands and a "Roosevelt"-marked movement. We paired this piece with our stainless steel case and crown and matched the hands with a blue leather strap, resulting in a distinctive timepiece with details from every angle. 

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.
