Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 602 unique:  We are thrilled to present our latest creation, the Springfield 602 wristwatch conversion from Vortic Watch Company's American Artisan Series. This watch is built from a vintage 17-jewel Illinois Watch Company pocket watch, first produced in 1931.

The champagne titanium case, knurled gold plated crown, and cobalt blue leather strap create an elegant and sophisticated design that is sure to turn heads.

At the heart of the Springfield 602 is a vintage Illinois movement, carefully restored and converted into a fully functional wristwatch. The gold-plated gears work in perfect harmony to keep time with impeccable accuracy, while the unique knurled crown provides a touch of opulence to the overall aesthetic. This watch is a true work of art that seamlessly blends the classic elegance of the past with the modern sophistication of the present.

Whether worn to a formal event or as a statement piece, the Springfield 602 is sure to captivate and enchant, drawing attention to its stunning design and impeccable craftsmanship. As with all of our pocket watch conversions, the Springfield 602 is a testament to the artistry and precision that goes into every Vortic Watch Company creation. With its unique history and heritage, this watch is a true piece of American craftsmanship that will be treasured for generations to come.

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.
