Watch Description

The Springfield 415 is the 415th 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 415 Unique: Today we present this gorgeous, rustic piece from the Illinois Watch Company. We love the age of the dial and ponder about the many stories and hands that touched this watch for almost 100 years. Carefully decorated by vertical lines across the entirety of the dial and lightly accented by these worn numerals, this watch will truly be a head-turner on your wrist. We contrasted this look with a fantastic machined titanium case and topped it off with a nickel-plated crown and hardware. Our marsh green band ties the whole piece together nicely and helps carry the green motif. The movement inside of this watch is almost unrecognizable from the face, with an impeccably clean and flashy dial, embellished with carefully machined Geneva lines all across the entirety of the build plates. The two smaller finger bridges hold onto the third and fourth escapement wheels, plated in rose-gold. Double roller escapement helps keep this watch running smoothly all these years later. This watch was originally manufactured in Springfield, Illinois in 1924. Not far away in Chicago, in April of the same year, Al Capone’s brother Frank Capone was fatally gunned down by the Chicago Police.

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.
