Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 058 unique: We are in awe of the stunning design and craftsmanship of this 1921 Illinois Watch Company pocket watch and are thrilled to give it new life as a wristwatch! A gilded, highly decorated single-sunk dial displays bold black numerals and blued steel heavy moon hands. We've highlighted the textured gold of the dial with a satiny bronze case and crown, while a stainless steel case back displays a perfectly restored 17-jewel Autocrat movement. Finished with a simple black leather strap, this watch is a literal manifestation of the golden age of American watchmaking.

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.
