Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 464 unique: Today, we are excited to introduce this stunning piece from the Illinois Watch Company — the Springfield 464. Originally manufactured in 1926 by the Illinois Watch Company, the Springfield 464 features a spectacular dial design, bold type numbers, and a clear display case that reveals the intricate nickel gears with bronze details. The dark and light gold striations on the dial contrast with the deep blue hands magnificently. Our Machined Titanium case accentuates the luminous gold patterns of the dial wonderfully. This 274-grade timepiece, powered by 21 jewels, has an incredibly durable and scratch-resistant coating that’s sure to keep the watch intact and functional for years to come. Lastly, our Cordovan Black leather strap brings this exceptional timepiece together. This watch was originally produced in Springfield, Illinois, in 1926 — the same year that the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio became Walt Disney Studios to reflect the younger brother’s creative contributions to the company.

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.
