Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 061 unique: One hundred and one years after its creation, this exceptional Illinois Watch Company pocket watch has been brought back to life in stunning fashion. The original dial is showstopping — a gold-tinged, pinstriped center dial surrounded by intricately engraved designs and circular grooves, accented by Art Nouveau numerals and open kite hands. We've played with the metallic theme of this piece by pairing it with our two-toned stainless steel case and crown with a coin-edged bronze bezel. An open case back reveals a 17-jewel movement with gold-plated gears, accents, and inlay, and a classic black leather strap completes the look. 

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.
