Watch Description

The Springfield 376 is the 376th 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 376 Unique: Illinois Watch Company was contracted by the Santa Fe Watch Company to create these Santa Fe Special watches, with its headquarters in Topeka, Kansas. The Santa Fe Railroad line traversed the midwest traveling from Kansas to New Mexico and eventually stretched out to California. Originally these watches were made for the Railroad and were 16s lever set movements. This watch came later after the railroad watches and is an homage to some of the earlier models. We absolutely love this very unique and well-designed dial, cased in our machined bronze and topped off with a nickel-plated crown. This ¾ plate 21 jewel movement has rosegold gears and gold plated balance and hardware all throughout. You can see on the build plate the “Santa Fe Special” matching the rest of the gold elements inside this watch. This watch has its roots based in the locomotive era and is ready to continue to traverse the great United States of America.

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.
