Sangamon Watch Company
Sangamon Watches was started in America’s Heartland by two international business travelers who wanted to combine their passions of history and high-quality watches. Using their business expertise, Sangamon designed stunning dress watches for men and women around meaningful American stories. 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. It operated for 61 years building nearly six million watches and had over 1200 employees at its peak.
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.
