Watch Description

The Springfield 358 is the 358th 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 358 Unique: This watch definitely gives us a harvest-y October feel! The long skinny numbers paired with the speckled background of the dial with just a splash of gold around the center has a very fall essence, we can almost smell the pumpkin! We chose our machined titanium case and of course the round raw crown to round out this fall feature. Our tobacco strap adds a warm, worn feeling to the overall watch. We can also see this watch being a great fit with a crimson strap to make it pop a little more! The Illinois watch company produced the movement we used for this watch is from 1921 and it has 19jewels and a striped pattern on the movement. We often see a pinstripe look on the Illinois movements but this pattern is a little different and looks almost angled, creating a bit of an optical allusion.

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.
