Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 565 unique: We are excited to introduce the Springfield 565, part of the American Artisan Series from the Vortic Watch Company.

This one-of-a-kind wristwatch conversion was crafted from an antique 17-jewel Illinois Watch Company pocket watch first built in 1925. We sandblasted a kiln-treated champagne titanium case and added a nickel-plated crown, an oxblood cordovan leather strap, and gold-plated gears to create a timeless classic.

This pocket watch conversion was done with the utmost care. The Springfield 565 is a perfect combination of modern design and vintage style. The unique finish and materials make it a truly special timepiece. With its classic look and modern features, this watch is sure to be a conversation starter.

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.
