Watch Description

The Springfield 411 is the 411th 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 411 Unique: We are happy to release this exquisite timepiece from the Illinois Watch Company. This double-sunk dial is highly decorated with a uniquely exclusive Moire design. We were inspired by the dark numerals so we decided to encase this movement in our signature DLC titanium and finish it off with a black cordovan strap. The gold plated crown and hardware complete the feel of this spectacular watch. This piece truly is the King of Time, powered by 17 ruby and sapphire jewels and double roller escapement. The guard pin on the pallet fork helps prevent over banking, an added safety feature that keeps this watch running perfectly. The build plate has been carefully machined with horizontal Geneva lines, accented by nickel and stainless steel hardware. This nickel material was more durable than the gilded plates and offered a better surface for decorative machining methods. This watch was originally produced in 1927 by the Illinois Watch Company from Springfield, Illinois. Also in this same year, Alfred Hitchcock directed his very first film, The Pleasure Garden.

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.
