Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 504 unique: Today, we’re delighted to present this incredibly rare watch initially produced by the Illinois Watch Company with a Lexington Watch Company private label — the Springfield 504. The Illinois Watch Company only created 100 of these stunning and sophisticated pocket watches, making the Springfield 504 a one-of-kind, luxurious piece of history. The watch’s dial boasts an immaculate white background with elegantly-styled dark hour numerals surrounded by blood orange minute numerals. The watch’s exquisite dial also features royal blue spade watch hands, a matching subdial, and a Lexington label. We paired this antique piece with our glimmering and powerful Machined Titanium case and nickel crown, which complement the dial’s polished style. The back of the watch features a 405-grade open-face movement with a going barrel and center bridge plate. You can also view the watch’s “Lexington Watch Providence, R.I.” engraving, corroborating the piece’s rarity and historicity. The watch also features bronze-plated gears powered by 17 gorgeous jewels. To top it all off, we equipped this remarkable watch with our stylish and comfortable Cordovan Oxblood leather watch strap. The Illinois Watch Company initially manufactured the original pocket watch with a Lexington Watch Company private label in Springfield, Illinois, in 1915 — the same year that Congress created the modern United States Coast Guard. Congress created the Coast Guard by merging the United States Revenue Cutter Service — established in 1790 — and the United States Lifesaving Service — created in 1848. The Coast Guard began as part of the U.S. Department of Treasury. In 1967, the service branch was moved to the U.S. Department of Transportation, and in 2003, the branch was placed under the Department of Homeland Security.

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.
