ILLINOIS WATCH COMPANY

Organized in 1869 The Illinois Springfield Watch Company would not build their first movements until 1872 and realized full production in 1875. Much of this time was spent in development and style production. The first watch was the "Stuart" model, followed in order by the "Mason," Bunn," "Miller," and finally the "Currier. The early Illinois models were key-wound and key-set.  The first stem-wind watch was produced in 1875.   Illinois later produced an extensive line of extremely fine and accurate Railroad-grade pocket watches like the "Sangamo Special," "Bunn Special" and "Santa Fe Special" (just to name a few). In 1879, the company was reorganized and the name changed to the Illinois Springfield Watch Company. By 1885 the company name was changed yet again to the Illinois Watch Company. In the later part of 1927, Hamilton Watch Company purchased the Illinois Watch Company.
