Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 546 unique: We’re thrilled to showcase this remarkable piece of history that was initially distributed by the Illinois Watch Company a century ago — the Springfield 546. This exquisite antique boasts a cream-colored dial with an intricate and sumptuous golden center design and eye-catching bold black numerals. You can also see the watch face’s matching subdial and blued steel gothic watch hands. We matched this stunning pocket watch with our stylish and powerful Sandblasted Titanium case and topped it off with a gold-plated crown, matching the dial’s unforgettable center design. Our Sandblasted Titanium case features a transparent back that displays the pocket watch’s historic 405-grade open-face movement with a breathtaking engraving that reads “The Autocrat.” This handsome dial also features a going barrel, center bridge plate, and 17 opulent jewels as well as gold-plated gears. Finally, we equipped this one-of-a-kind watch with our comfortable Cordovan Black leather watch strap, adding further flair to this already-striking piece of history.

The Illinois Watch Company originally manufactured the Springfield 546’s beautiful pocket watch in Springfield, Illinois, in 1922 — the same year the Hollywood Bowl amphitheater opened in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles. William Reed and H. Ellis Reed determined the location for the Hollywood Bowl, and they chose the spot because of its close distance to downtown Hollywood and its concave hillside that serves as a natural amplifier. The amphitheater has hosted numerous musicians, performers, and spectacles through the years, including The Beatles, The Doors, The Jackson 5, The Who, Monty Python, and many more important pop culture icons.

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.
