Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 445 unique: Today we are very pleased to bring you this stunning watch from the Illinois Watch Company, our Springfield 445. The dial of this watch is so incredibly unique and rare, we absolutely love how these art deco style numerals bring out so much character to this aged dial. The intricate wallpaper pattern that fills the entire face with a sense of movement really gives this watch a playful, fun motif. We set this watch inside our DLC black case to contrast the soft tones of the dial and help the hands and numerals stand out nicely. Our nickel-plated crown stands out on top, while the dark tones of this marsh green band complete the look. We are so amazed by this impeccable movement as we turn the watch over to peek inside. Adorned by 21 spectacular jewels, screw-set into the build plate with brass hardware throughout. This watch displays a perfect balance of precious metal accents, such as rose-gold gears and brass, carrying your eye all throughout to explore the different design elements that went into making this watch. Originally produced in 1923 in Springfield, Illinois by the Illinois Watch Company. On nearly the other side of the world, Howard Carter and his team finally enter the tomb of King Tutankhamun. The excavation was slow and methodical, eventually coming to an end nine years later in 1932.

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.
