Watch Description

The Springfield 413 is the 413th 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 413 Unique: Today we bring you this wonderful timepiece from the Illinois Watch Company, the Springfield 413. With so many unique watches that we work with every single day, we like to take the extra time and let the watch really speak to us. Often we find that the look and feel of the final product practically falls in place effortlessly. The design elements of this watch go so well together that we catch ourselves staring, and could not be happier with the result. This very unique double sunk dial has such character in the center with the ornate designs and the perfect amount of wear and age around the edges. We love the balance of visual weight from the bold dark numerals and case, with this soft white dial face background. The gold accents in the center are carried throughout with this gold-plated crown and hardware. Our marsh green strap ties the whole thing together nicely, completing the feel of this watch. The movement inside is one of our favorite models from Illinois, the Autocrat. With 17 screw-set jewels, accented by stainless steel hardware all across the ¾ bridge plate. Rose gold gears match the copper inlay lettering, complemented with an incredibly intricate spiral design. This watch was originally manufactured in 1925 in Springfield, Illinois. This same year, the very first National Spelling Bee was held in Washington D.C. and is still to this day the longest-running not-for-profit educational promotion program.

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.
