Watch Description

The Springfield 366 is the 366th 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 366 Unique: Today we are happy to present to you this incredibly rustic and beautiful antique watch from the Illinois Watch Company, the Springfield 366. We can’t stop looking at the amazing character on this dial, evenly worn and aged throughout. The subtle floral pattern on the inside of this double sunk dial adds to the interest and brings you in for a second look. Full moon dark blue steel hands pair well with our navy strap and are accented by a nickel-plated crown and hardware. This dark gunmetal titanium case ties everything together nicely, giving this watch a modern flare to an antique look. The power behind this watch is none other than the A. Lincoln grade movement from Illinois. This grade of watch was originally dedicated to the late president and boasts an amazing 21 jewels. In contrast to the unique dial, the inner workings of this movement look almost brand new. These intricate Geneva lines machined into the build plates along with stainless steel hardware immediately grab your attention and keep your eyes exploring every aspect of the build space. Rose gold gears and a brass balance wheel shine through from beneath and bring some extra attention to the classy feel of this watch. This watch was originally produced by the Illinois Watch Company in Springfield, Illinois in 1921. This is also the year in which Congress approved the burial of the unknown soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. The tomb is made up of three levels of marble and granite, with the large marble pieces being sourced from an area near Gunnison, Colorado.

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.
