Watch Description

The Springfield 333 is the 333rd 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.

What makes the Springfield 333 Unique: The shine on the Springfield 333 is an absolute treat. It has a perfect sheen that highlights the machined titanium case as well as the gold hands. We paired it with a black horween strap to allow the dial and gold features to be accentuated. Depending on how you hold it in the light it gives a different luster! Coincidentally, the number "333" has been said to signify the presence of something "angelic". This 17 jewel movement was manufactured in 1927 by the Illinois Watch Company - the same year work began on Mount Rushmore!

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.
