Sangamon Watch Company
Sangamon Watch Company was founded in Springfield, Illinois with a commitment to craft historically inspired watches. As international business travelers, we often bought expensive watches with little inspiration behind them. We knew we had to build meaningful, high-quality watches for men and women and at affordable prices. We visited the same factories that manufacture parts for many world-class brands and designed what we believe are the most inspirational watches in the USA. Every Sangamon watch is hand assembled in limited quantities and based on a special inspirational story.
Behind The Name
Sangamon Watch Company is named after the Sangamon River, which runs from Central Illinois and feeds into the Mississippi River. The river was loved by Abraham Lincoln, whose family settled along the river when he was a young man. The Sangamon region was also home to one of the finest watchmakers in the United States - the Illinois Watch Company. At its peak, it had over 1200 employees and produced over 43,000 watch movements each year.
Our employees work in the long shadow of President Lincoln feeling inspired by our region’s rich history. Our name, Sangamon, is proud to honor this tradition of excellence.
