Watch Description

The Springfield 350 is the 350th 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 350 Unique: This watch was a team favorite, the classic Illinois numerals with the unique design in the center made for an eye-catching Conversation Piece! The two-toned gold pattern has an almost cowboy essence to it with the rope and horseshoe like designs. In our machined titanium case with the round gold crown, the obvious strap choice for this dial was navy. The movement is an Illinois Watch Company production from 1923, boasting 21jewels! We love the balance and style of this watch!

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.
