Watch Description

The Springfield 325 is the 325th one-of-a-kind piece in Vortic's "Springfield " line of the American Artisan Series. This watch contains the original movement (timepiece), dial (face), and hands from a vintage (1880’s – 1950’s) pocket watch. The American Artisan Series is a line of fully American Made wristwatches powered by restored, U.S. made pocket watch movements.

Our machined bronze case was a no brainer with the beautiful accents in the center of the dial as well as the patina around the dial! Each movement and dial is unique piece of history and this dial obviously has a story to tell. Manufactured in 1923 and to lend some context, that was the year The Hollywood Sign is inaugurated in California! We could see this watch on someone like a John Barrymore from that time period.

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.
