Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 063 unique: We're always thrilled when we come across pocket watches that show both their age and enduring quality, and the pocket watch within the Springfield 063 represents this dichotomy perfectly. Originally manufactured in 1920 by the Illinois Watch Company of Springfield, Illinois, this 12-size pocket watch features a 17-jewel Autocrat grade movement with impressive damaskeening and gold inlay. The dial, however, is by far the most impressive aspect of this piece with its intricate gold engravings, distinguished patina, and blued steel moon hands. We paired this piece with our machined bronze case and crown and a lightly polished stainless steel bezel to offset and showcase the ornate dial. A classic black leather strap pulls together this perfect pairing of old and new. 

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.
