Watch Description

The Springfield 345 is the 345th 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 345 Unique: Introducing The Springfield 345! The knurled gold plated crown enhances the refined gold filigree accents on the dial, while the stitching on the Horween Cordovan Oxblood strap makes the dark numbers pop. The Illinois movement was produced in 1923, which is the same year the Hollywood Sign was inaugurated in California. The golden tones and formal strap make this piece truly reminiscent of Hollywood's Golden Age!

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.
