Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 594 unique: Today we are proud to present the Springfield 594, crafted from an antique 17-jewel pocket watch that was originally produced by the Illinois Watch Company in Springfield, Illinois in 1921. The watch features an exquisite center design on the dial that sparkles in the light, along with a glimmering subdial. Art deco numerals and blued steel diamond hands perfectly complement the vintage aesthetic of the watch. The back of the watch showcases gold-plated gears and Côtes de Genève, adding to the watch's appeal, and our blued titanium case and knurled nickel crown were carefully crafted to provide a modern touch to this classic timepiece. We've paired this dignified piece with a merlot leather strap, adding a touch of elegance and luxury to the aesthetic. This one-of-a-kind watch is perfect for the modern gentleman who appreciates the timeless charm of vintage pocket watches. Wear it on your wrist and be prepared for compliments and conversations wherever you go.

The Illinois Watch Company produced the pocket watch In 1921. That same year, the launch of Vogue magazine's American edition marked a significant moment in American fashion history, reflecting the country's cultural shift as it emerged from the first World War. The magazine's first issue was published in December of that year, with publisher Condé Nast and editor-in-chief Edna Woolman Chase. Originally intended for the "smart set" of New York society, Vogue's American edition quickly gained a national following and became a symbol of style and sophistication. Featuring stunning photography, in-depth articles on fashion, and profiles of influential figures in society, Vogue helped shape the country's fashion trends for decades to come. The magazine's launch introduced new ideas to a wide audience and played a vital role in the country's post-war cultural evolution.

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.
