It looks like it would have been right at home on the wrist of Indiana Jones! This watch is a showpiece as much as it is as unique timepiece!
—John from Indiana
After receiving the watch in the mail, I was surprised to see the watch somehow looked better in person than it did in the photos. I didn't think that would be possible!

The skeleton back is amazing and the packaging was perfect. To honor the past with details like this is truly impressive.

I own so called "high end" watches such as Rolex, Panerai, and Zenith but they pale in comparison to my two Vortic models which I wear everyday to work.

What makes the Springfield 505 unique: Today, we're happy to present this historic piece originally manufactured by the Illinois Watch Company — the Springfield 505. The watch features a remarkable, aged dial with dark stylized numerals against its light-cream-colored background. The front of the timepiece also boasts teal gothic minute and hour hands. We matched this remarkable antique with our stylish and robust Machined Titanium case and copper crown, adding even more stunning sophistication to the watch. Our Machined Titanium case features an open back that reveals the pocket watch's 404-grade open-face movement with a center bridge plate. It also boasts a going barrel, bronze-plated gears, and 17 sumptuous jewels. Finally, we made this piece of history wearable with our Natural leather watch strap, complementing the watch's antique design. The Illinois Watch Company initially produced the Springfield 505's pocket watch in Springfield, Illinois, in 1918 — the same year that Opha May Johnson became the first woman to join the United States Marine Corps. In August 1918 — during World War I — the Secretary of the Navy, Josephus Daniels, allowed women to enlist for clerical work in the Marine Corps Reserve. After Johnson, 305 more women enlisted. Once World War I concluded, the Marine Corps and other US military branches disenrolled women. In 1948, Congress passed the Women's Armed Services Integration Act, which allowed women to join and remain in the Marine Corps and other military branches outside of wartime.
