Watch Description

The Springfield 337 is the 337th 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 337 Unique: This watch is a great example of the spectrum of movements we have in our inventory. There is a subtle, distressed look from whatever exposure the dial received in the almost 100 years before it arrived in our shop. We especially love the unique, gothic style hands and the line "Majestic" under the traditional Illinois on the dial. Again, we appreciate the pinstripe in the center of the dial and the nod to it on the back of the movement as well. Produced in 1924 by the Illinois Watch Company with 17jewels, this is also a Double Roller movement. Staying with the silver tones in the dial, we chose our machined titanium case, knurled nickel crown and a coal strap. Did you know... the year this movement was produced was the same year MGM was founded in Los Angeles, California?

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.
