Watch Description

The Springfield 378 is the 378th 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 378 Unique: This watch is the perfect example of high class and esteem, setting itself apart from the rest with such incredible details. There is not enough that could be said about this magnificent dial and the craftsmanship of the nickel plate, accompanied by the fantastic gold-plated numerals. We dressed up this movement into our machined titanium case with a gold-plated crown and finished it up with a black cordovan strap. The underside of this watch is no stranger to unique details as well, with the center bridge plate and separate pillar plates to really draw the eye all around the different elements that hold the gears in place. 17 screw-set Jewels and a double roller escapement that helps to keep the watch from overbanking. Sometimes it is nice to find a watch that begs for a flashy presentation, and this watch has a way of catching your eye from across the room. Originally manufactured in 1930 in Springfield, Illinois, America at this time was just entering the Great Depression era. A lot of amazing American products came out of this era of our history and are a living reminder of the perseverance of our country to get through a dark era in our history. This watch is no exception to the quality American-made products of that time.

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.
