On this day in history, January 24th, 1916, the United States Congress passed the Adamson Act, which was the first federal law to establish an 8-hour workday and overtime pay for railroad workers. This act was a major milestone for the labor movement in the United States and was the first federal law to set a national standard for working conditions. The Adamson Act was named for Georgia Congressman William C. Adamson, who introduced the bill in the House of Representatives. It was passed with strong support from President Woodrow Wilson and the labor movement.

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.
