Watch Description

The Springfield 377 is the 377th 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 377 Unique: It’s all in the details in this amazing Illinois watch, with this intricately machined dial and movement. The vertical raised rows in the dial really set this watch apart, accented by the machined titanium case and nickel-plated crown. The movement has matching accent lines as well as 17 beautiful jewels and gold set screws. The rose gold gear train, polished and decorated ratchet wheels, and double roller escapement add to the flare of this watch. This wonderful piece of history was manufactured in Springfield, Illinois in 1923. At this time period, Illinois was primarily manufacturing the movement and dial as one, which would then be sold to private jewelry stores. The watch would then be cased and finished by the jeweler in the store after being purchased by the customer. This was a common practice for the Illinois Watch Company as well as others during this time, and they continued this process until the early 1930’s when they began casing the watches at the factory. Here we are, almost 100 years later placing this movement in a new case once again, in what we hope will last this movement for at least the next 100 years.

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.
