Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 577 unique: We are thrilled to present to you this absolutely stunning timepiece originally manufactured by the Illinois Watch Company, our Springfield 577. The dial on this watch will grab your attention from across the room and bring you in for a closer examination. The dial has been carefully machined with these vertical lines all across it, which are highlighted beautifully through a domed sapphire crystal. These bold, dark numerals stand out nicely against and pair well with these blued steel open-kite hands. As we turn this watch over, we are met with more attractive nickel plating, to bring attention to these intricately designed build plates. Gold-plated gears peak through from beneath in this Federal grade watch, equipped with 17 screw-set jewels. Our merlot strap and nickel hardware round out the finer details and give a classic look and comfortable feel on the wrist. This watch is perfect for every occasion and is sure to turn some heads.

This watch was originally produced by the Illinois Watch Company in Springfield, Illinois in 1923. The signing of the Treaty of Lausanne in 1923 is an interesting historical event. The treaty was signed between the Allied Powers and the Republic of Turkey, and it officially ended World War I. It also marked the end of the Ottoman Empire, which had been a major player in the region for centuries. The treaty also established modern-day Turkey's borders, and it recognized the independence of the Republic of Turkey. The treaty also established the Turkish Republic's right to control its own foreign policy. The Treaty of Lausanne was a major event in the history of the region and it had lasting implications for the region today.

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.
