Watch Description

The Springfield 367 is the 367th 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 367 Unique: As if this beautifully ornate dial isn’t enough to catch your attention, the 17 Jewel Autocrat movement definitely will. What makes this movement special is the bridge plate that spans across the entire movement with raised silver set screws and the engraved “Autocrat” insignia next to the center wheel. This watch truly was the symbol of high class and sophistication when it was manufactured in 1925 in Springfield, Illinois. With a total production of 40,000 for these movements, we get quite excited when we have the chance to use one of these in a custom watch such as this. With a magnificent movement and dial, we went all out with a polished bronze case, copper crown and classic natural band. Diamond blue steel hands and stark black numerals help to emphasize the contrast of the detail in the center of the dial. The dictionary defines Autocrat as a ruler with absolute power and authority. We couldn’t imagine a better way to describe this watch, powered by a Reed whip spring regulator to keep the hairspring in place and accented with gold lacquered text. This watch is truly a head turner and will make you feel as powerful as it looks.

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.
