Watch Description

What makes the Springfield 605 unique: The Springfield 605 is a one-of-a-kind timepiece from the Vortic Watch Company's American Artisan Series.

This stunning wristwatch conversion was built from an antique 19-jewel Illinois Watch Company pocket watch first built in 1921. The case is crafted from a champagne titanium, with a nickel-plated crown, and a black leather strap.

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.
