Watch Description

The Springfield 410 is the 410th 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 410 Unique: We are pleased to be introducing you to the Springfield 410. We cased this movement with our antique bronze, to match the rustic qualities of this watch. Originally manufactured in 1923, during a time when gold and silver were a sign of prosperity. We wanted to pair this dial with gold accents to truly showcase these gold full moon hands. We added our natural band as well as gold-plated hardware throughout, as well. We especially took notice of the third and fourth wheel bridges and how the curvature of the design flows well with the shape of the balance wheel. We love the partial mirror finish on the mainspring and ratchet plate that helps accentuate the circular machine finish on the main plate. The definition of an Autocrat is "a ruler who has absolute power". This impeccable Illinois movement embodies the sophistication of the Autocrat, with the visual power and the tenacity to keep running for years to come. Also in 1923, the very first issue of Time Magazine was published in March of this same year.

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.
